    • Blue Topaz ~ The December Birthstone

       

       

      The December birthstone is.......well, actually there are many stones that are listed as this month's birthstone.  Some of the most common gemstones used are turquoise , zircon, tanzanite and lapis. Look at all the awesome choices December babies have!  Today on the Charming Chick blog we will be looking at blue topaz because it is one the most popular gemstones used to represent this fun filled and frosty month.

       

       

       

      The gemstone topaz comes in a variety of colors but today - thanks to an enhancement process developed in the 1970's - the most popular variety is the blue topaz. This dazzling December birthstone is available is several stunning shades of blue.

      London Blue -- also known as Super Blue, is a deep rich color.

      Swiss Blue -- is a mid-blue color

      Sky Blue -- is a light icy-blue.

       

      Believe it or not, the blue was once considered the rarest of the topaz colors. However, the use of irradiation and heat can turn a colorless or lightly colored topaz into the beautiful blue December birthstone known as blue topaz.

       

       

       

       

      The blue topaz was named the state gem of Texas in 1969 to celebrate a small deposit of natural blue topaz that was found in the state. The blue is also reminiscent of the gorgeous, clear blue Texas sky.

       

       

      The white metals such as sterling silver really compliment the coolness of the stone. A faceted blue topaz will also sparkle and dance as the light hits it.

       

      Topaz was once believed to change color if there was poisoned food or drink nearby. It was thought to increase strength, dispel enchantment and make the wearer invisible -- but only if there was a emergency. That could come in very handy don't you think?

       

      So as you can see the December birthstone is an amazing an interesting gemstone. If you know someone who has a birthday this month treat them to one of our stunning blue topaz jewelry items.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

    • Summer Turquoise Jewelry

      Turquoise jewelry is one of those classic summer accessories that never seem to go out of style. It's the perfect shade for almost any summer outfit, and it's a really affordable gemstone.

      Adventures in the Stiletto Jungle has a great article about summer jewelry, also commenting about how turquoise jewelry is really a must-have for summer.

      I was interested, so I did a little research and found out some really cool things about turquoise jewelry. For centuries women around the world have believed that turquoise has the ability to attract luck, love, and money, and that turquoise jewelry has healing and protective powers. Turquoise got it's name from 16th century Europeans who mistakenly thought that the turquoise they were buying from traders was originating from Turkey, rather than Persia. Turquoise is also an alternative December birthstone.

      How do you care for turquoise jewelry? Be sure not to expose it to oils, perfumes, cosmetics, chemicals, heat, or direct sunlight. You can keep it from scratching by storing it separately from other jewelry pieces. Feel free to wash with water as needed, but be sure to dry the gemstone thoroughly afterwards.
