London Blue Topaz Ring using CAD

The London Blue Topaz is a popular stone choice for those looking for something or than a diamond in their jewellery.

Blue gemstones with good hardness and brilliance tend to be rare and fairly expensive. This is especially true of the darker blue gems, such as sapphire, tanzanite and spinel. There are other, less expensive gems in a saturated deep blue, including kyanite, lapis lazuli, iolite and fluorite. But these are much softer stones that are not suitable for everyday jewellery such as rings.

London Blue

It is not surprising then that blue topaz has become one of the top selling gems in the jewellery business. Blue topaz is unusual in offering excellent hardness and brilliance at a very reasonable cost.

Blue topaz can be found in both lighter and darker tones, usually known in the trade as sky blue topaz, Swiss blue topaz and London blue topaz. As in the case of other blue gems, the more saturated blues tend to have a higher value. So in topaz it is the London blue that usually regarded as the most valuable.

London blue topaz

Is a medium to dark grayish blue, sometimes described as “steely” or “inky”. Many London blue gems have a slightly greenish tone when viewed from certain angles.

The reason why blue topaz is so reasonably priced is that topaz is a very abundant material. But natural topaz occurs mainly in white (colourless) and brown; natural blue topaz is actually very rare. Virtually all the blue topaz on the market is produced by treating white topaz with radiation.

The reason that the color of topaz can be changed by irradiation is due to the special way that topaz gets its color. Most gems, such as sapphire, are colored by trace elements such as iron or titanium. Some gems, such as peridot, are colored by elements in their essential chemical composition. But topaz is unique in that the color results from so-called color centers, which are imperfections in the crystal lattice that change the way the crystal absorbs light.

Ring Designs

When designing your own rings, as a jeweller or for yourself, you should make sure you get to see a number of examples to show the variety of ring designs and colours on offer. It doesn’t take much time for an experienced CAD designer to offer colour variations for your ring designs, so why should you pay extra!

We offer a contact sheet for your rings designs, which include colour variety if requested. we don’t charge extra for this, but some companies do, so make sure your not pay over the odds.

Another tip, you can also see your designs with a variety of stone settings, from diamonds to emeralds. Again thins doesn’t take long to create a render, our CAD designs can also do this for you at no additional cost.
