The main purpose of a diamond or a gemstone is to sparkle. And by doing so, it brings joy not only to its wearer but to those who look at it.
It is no doubt that the harder the consistency of the stone, the more fire and brilliance it exudes, which is why diamonds are the stones with the most fire, followed by cubic zirconia and sapphires.
But here are some pictures I took of a simple blue topaz ring that I used to own, set in filigree platina.
The pictures were taken in natural daylight. I’m absolutely amazed at how the blue light literally spills out onto its surrounding.
For a simple blue topaz that is cut right, I think this stone performs very well indeed.
