About Topaz:

Topaz, the birthstone of November, is known to come in a variety of colors.  Stones can naturally be yellow, gold, brown, pink, white/colorless, and light blue.  Specific tones of blue such as "Swiss blue" and "London blue" are achieved through irradiation treatment.  Vibrant pink, violet, "mystic topaz," and green topaz are the result of coating natural colorless topaz in titanium and other materials.

Ranking 8 on the Mohs hardness scale, topaz is highly scratch resistant and great for everyday wear.  It is important to note, however, that topaz is easy-cleaving and cannot withstand sharp blows.  Most topaz jewelry can safely be cleaned with chemical jewelry cleaner, but we recommend cleaning coated topaz jewelry (such as "mystic topaz") with care.  Certain coatings can be more delicate than others.  Warm water with mild soap and a soft bristled toothbrush should not harm coated topaz if not brushed aggressively.

 

About Sapphire:

While many know sapphire to be blue, the gemstone forms naturally in any shade and saturation of color on the color spectrum.  Like ruby, sapphire is a member of the "corundum" family.  This means that all rubies are a particular shade of red sapphire.  Another notable variety of corundum is "padparadscha sapphire," a sunset, salmon pink sapphire from Sri Lanka, Madagascar, and Tanzania.  Other popular colors in the trade include yellow, pink, and white sapphire.  Color changing varieties do exist, as well as stones that display "asterism," a term for when reflected light creates a star effect in the stone.  Most sapphire available on the market is heat treated.  This is an accepted practice in the industry, and it is best to assume ALL sapphire has been heat treated unless otherwise proven by a trusted independent laboratory report.  Sapphire is the official birthstone for the month of September.

Sapphire is an incredibly durable stone that is excellent for everyday wear.  The stone ranks 9 on the Mohs hardness scale and is highly scratch resistant as a result; it also is resistant to chipping or breaking due to being tough as well.  Sapphire jewelry, natural or manmade, is safe to clean in chemical jewelry cleaners, ultrasonic cleaners, and steam cleaners.
