Platinum Blue Topaz Engagement Rings by David West
About Platinum Blue Topaz Engagement Rings by David West
Engagement rings have been the ultimate symbol of love for thousands of years. In ancient Egypt, they wore rings on the third finger of the left hand to mark where the "vein of love" went directly to the heart, starting a tradition that continues today. When pledging your love with a unique engagement ring, you are starting your own family tradition. The most important value factor to consider when shopping for platinum blue topaz engagement rings is the quality of the center stone. Gemvara hand-selects top quality conflict-free gems that are expertly cut for maximum beauty. The ancient Greeks believed that topaz has the power to increase strength and make its wearer invisible in times of emergency. Blue topaz is a December birthstone, the gem for the 4th anniversary gem, and the Texas state gem. Platinum is exceptionally rare and luxurious to the touch, with a recognizable heft in your hand. Naturally white, its purity makes it hypoallergenic as well. Our unrivalled selection of engagement rings by David West, Gemvara Essentials, Randy Dixon, and other talented jewelry designers means you can find an engagement ring that perfectly symbolizes your relationship. Clean platinum blue topaz engagement rings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush where dust collects. When taking off your engagement ring, don't pull on the gemstone: this won't damage the gem but it can, over time, stretch the metal that holds it in place, making the setting less secure. Be careful when removing your ring to wash your hands. Don't leave it on the rim of a sink where it can slip down the drain! Gemvara's fine quality platinum blue topaz engagement rings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Blue Topaz Quality
Legend has it that blue topaz minimizes dangerous enchantment and increases your strength. When shopping for blue topaz, the most important aspect to consider is color. Blue topaz should capture the color of the sky on a cloudless day. The more pure and bright the pastel blue, the better. Generally blue topaz comes in three colors: pale, sky blue topaz; vivid, super blue topaz; and dark, London blue topaz. Gemvara's blue topaz jewelry is made with super blue topaz, but small sizes never show as saturated a color. Cut and clarity influence the value of the blue topaz because the light shade of the gem makes imperfections more pronounced. Blue was once the rarest color of topaz, but today it is the most common thanks to a stable color-enhancement process involving irradiation and heat that was developed in the 1970s. The enhancement of all blue topaz on the market today means this gem is affordable and available even in large sizes. Blue topaz is a December birthstone, the gem for the 4th anniversary, and the state gem of Texas. All Gemvara jewelry is made to order, which ensures that a premium-quality blue topaz will be hand-selected to perfectly suit your design. Crafted in the United States, Gemvara's fine black onyx jewelry is precious and personal, surely to be passed down for generations to come.
