Today is the darkest day of the year—the one with the fewest hours of sunlight and the longest night. The deep, sophisticated look of London blue topaz jewelry is particularly fitting for the time of year when evening reigns, and its rich hue will carry you far beyond the Christmas season.
London blue topaz is the darkest shade of blue topaz, calling to mind the hue of the evening sky. However, despite its deep color, it still exhibits striking vibrancy, even on the darkest night of the year. It’s brighter than a sapphire, and its rich indigo is free from even a hint of gray. It’s a unique gem that’s flattering to a wide range of skin tones and appealing in styles ranging from dramatic to Victorian to classic.
The 5.00 Carat Emerald-Cut London Blue Topaz and Diamond Ring puts London blue topaz on display in bold fashion: a breathtaking 5-carat emerald-cut gemstone, over a centimeter high, draws eyes to this piece from across the room. Accenting this daring indigo stone are two baguette-cut diamonds, 0.30 carats in all, adding extra sparkle and class.
If you’d prefer a more feminine look, consider a London blue topaz ring in a style inspired by the past, such as the London Blue Topaz Vintage Floral Ring. This gorgeous piece is adorned by a 6mm round London blue topaz, surrounded by a lavish 14K white gold setting. The personal care that’s poured into this handcrafted ring is evident. Numerous flowers are intricately carved into the band, which gradually narrows toward the back of the ring.
If you’re looking for a pair of earrings that would coordinate well with this vintage ring, consider the London Blue Topaz Stud Earrings in 14K White Gold which places round London blue topaz stones in gleaming 14K white gold basket settings. Although these earrings display classic style, their rich color elevates them beyond a basic. Choose from three stone sizes—6mm, 7mm or 8mm—for pieces that are just as daring as you’d like them to be.
It’s fitting that Christmas comes at the darkest time of year—during the days with the least light, we remember that the Light of the World came to earth as a baby. The winter solstice may mark the longest night of the year, but even the darkest night is no match for this Light and for the life it brings.
Deep, vibrantly-colored London blue topaz rings and earrings are fitting ways to celebrate light and life in the midst of darkness. Choose one of these brilliant rings or pairs of earrings and let your light shine.
