December Birthstone -- Ice Ice Baby
In our year-long look at fresh designs in birthstone jewelry, we've finally come to December. The days may be getting shorter and greyer, but December has its moments of beauty: the snowy white landscape, icy blue sky, and glittering icicles -- enhanced by holiday cheer. And blue topaz, the December birthstone, has enough sparkle to match it all.
This gem has an extraordinary blue color that is vibrant and soothing at the same time. It actually has a range of colors, from light sky blue to dark Swiss and London blue. All blue topaz contrasts beautifully with the white metals, such as sterling silver and white gold, and the light gems, such as diamonds, white topaz, and pearls.
Whether you want to brighten a December birthday or add some sparkle to Christmas morning, blue topaz jewelry is sure to be a delightful gift. Here's a sampling from our jewelry store:
So, have you added any gemstones to your jewelry box this year? Make sure you have plenty of blue topaz if you have a December birthday, and then add the alternative stones -- turquoise and tanzanite -- to your collection.
