Topaz rings make great engagement rings! As one of two November birthstones, it's available in a virtual rainbow of colors.
Engaging Mythology: Topaz is thought to bring protection against enemies and represent beauty and splendor.
The most commonly found color is blue, while the most expensive and valuable are the ones with golden-yellow tones.
The other birthstone for November is Citrine, a bright and citrusy yellow gemstone that is easier to find and much more affordable than it's golden Topaz counterpart.
Blue is by far the most popular color for topaz engagement rings. The wonderful deep sky blue color works well with just about everything. White gold, platinum, yellow and rose gold all enhance the stone, each in their own way.

Accent stones and diamonds also work especially well with Topaz rings because of the glassy luster of the stone. If you're looking for a topaz jewelry, we always recommend Gemvara because of the variety of styles and designs that they offer and the fact that they are entirely customizable. You get to pick the metal, accent stones, detailing etc...
When most people think of topaz rings, they think about a sky blue gemstone but it wasn't until recently that the blue topaz became so widely available. It's also no surprise that it's the most popular since blue is the favorite color of most men and women.
Engaging Fact: Although Topaz is officially November's birthstone the blue topaz is the modern birthstone for December. So.... yellow/gold for November and blue for December.....although both are Topaz. Got it?
Natural blue topaz with a deep rich color is fairly uncommon in nature so lighter stones are actually heat treated to achieve the popular blue. The same heat treatment is applied to achieve some of the other colors found on the market today.
Along with the blue, white topaz is one of our personal favorites. It has such a great look, it's a natural stone, and is a great option for an inexpensive engagement ring. It's used not only as a center stone but also as accent stones to surround other gemstones.

The blue and white topaz are by far the most popular and it isn't hard to figure out why. Topaz rings are so affordable but look rich and expensive. And, the glassy finish and a hardness of 8 on the Mohs scale, makes it the perfect gemstone for a ring that will be worn everyday.
