The lucky people born in November get to wear the beautiful topaz gemstone as their birthstone. Although topaz is found in a range of colours, it’s the beautiful light blue and golden-yellow topaz that are best known. The Ancient Egyptians believed that the topaz’s beautiful yellow hue was created by the sun god “Ra”. Because of that, they believed that the topaz possessed healing properties that would protect the stone’s owner.
The Ancient Romans believed that if topaz was near poisoned food or drink it would change colour and protect the stone’s wearer against poisoning. In India, people have believed for centuries that topaz worn above the heart, assures a long life, beauty, and intelligence. This blue topaz and diamond pendant would be just right for this! Even today, topaz is still known as a stone of wisdom, nobility, sincerity and courage.
