When you are shopping for blue topaz necklaces, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the blue topaz. The color should capture the beautiful sky of a summer's day. The more pure and bright the pastel blue, the better. Cut and clarity also matter, since the light shade makes inclusions more visible.
