If you or a loved one have a birthday this month, you probably already know that topaz is November’s birthstone.
This beautiful gem can make the ideal gift for someone or a lovely treat for yourself this month, but how do you wear it?
Choose your colour
The first thing to remember is that topaz comes in different shades, so you have a choice of colours.
Probably the most recognisable colour is sky blue, which is a lovely light, almost pastel shade. This works really great with silver metals but can also be worn with yellow gold styles.
The blue ranges from very light – looking almost clear with just a hint of colour – to slightly deeper. Both looks are really lovely, although it usually works out that the darker the colour, the higher the price.
You can also get white topaz, which is a really lovely, affordable alternative to diamonds. White topaz still reflects light really well and can be used to create subtle or statement looks depending on your style.
Just as with diamonds, white topaz will work with any colour metal, making it a really versatile choice.
You can also get London blue – which is slightly darker – and mystic topaz, which has a rainbow-like sheen to it that is really beautiful.
What size stone?
Because topaz is so versatile, it often features throughout jewellery in clusters of smaller stones, as well as large statement gems. Of course, you can also choose pieces that opt for both of these looks to create a really glittering item of jewellery that is sure to stand out.
If you want the colour of your topaz to really stand out, it is a good idea to opt for jewellery that features one or more larger stones. This is because they will draw the eye more, allowing people to appreciate the beautiful colour.
Something like this London Blue Topaz and White Topaz Ring is a great example of how larger stones can make a statement, even if the jewellery is relatively simple in style.
Paler shades of topaz are ideal for wearing in clusters or as single stones and can make an impact either way. Pieces like this Sky Blue Topaz Ring that use multiple stones allow your jewellery to catch the light at all times so it can still make a statement.
What’s your style?
Of course, one of the most important factors to bear in mind when it comes to deciding how to wear topaz jewellery is your personal style. A piece of jewellery may be really beautiful but if it doesn’t fit with what you like to wear, what’s the point in buying it?
Luckily our collection of topaz jewellery includes something for everyone, no matter what your price range. This means you’re sure to find something that suits your style, whether you want an item for everyday wear or for special occasions.
For those who like simple styles but enjoy making a statement, why not go for something with a stand-out colour but minimal detail? Our London Blue Topaz Bracelet is really stunning and is the perfect choice.
It has a lovely deep blue colour that stands out perfectly against the platinum overlaid silver, creating a cool look that will be perfectly at home on a smart evening out.
If you love a bit of statement detail, you can’t go wrong with a pair of Sky Blue Topaz and Diamond Earrings. This chandelier style will stand out whether you wear your hair up or down and are perfect for the festive party season.
For those who want jewellery for every day, something like this White Topaz and Tanzanite Ring could be perfect. The simple style still has plenty of interest and will allow you to add some luxury to your look on a daily basis.
