December's Birthstone: Blue Topaz

Blue topaz is one of many accepted birthstones--you could also substitute turquoise or tanzanite, but we love the bright, vivid clarity of these lovely stones. These cool, almost transparent stones remind us of a bright December day. Traditionally a symbol of love and affection, we can't think of a more meaningful gift for a December baby.

So crisp and clear--perfect for December!

Blue topaz is available in a variety of hues: Sky Blue, Swiss Blue, and London Blue topaz refer to the depth of color in the stone, London being the darkest. Of course you could also spring for Tanzanite, an increasingly rare stone found only in Tanzania, also an accepted December birthstone. Shop in store or online for your December gifts!

Stunning and substantial Tanzanite.
