The Gorgeous Imperial Topaz Gemstone

The Imperial Topaz gemstone is the most desirable of all of the Topaz gemstones and is highly prized by gem collectors and jewelry collectors alike. The Imperial Topaz is rarer than most other topaz colors because of the unique color range of the stone. There is a Brazilian Imperial Topaz that is magnificent when found in a rich golden brown color that is reminiscent of the perfect shade of Root Beer. It can even range into the yellows and violets.

The beautiful Imperial Topaz comes in on the Mohs hardness scale at 8.0, making it a very durable gemstone which is loved and appreciated by jewelry designers. It is easy to work with and with proper care, can last for years and years thanks to its hardness and durability. You can find amazing pieces of jewelry set with this gemstone in earrings, bracelets, pendants, pins, brooches and in rings.

Care: All Imperial Topaz jewelry is considered semi-precious so you do need to take some care with your jewelry pieces. You should never bathe, swim, clean, shower or workout while wearing your jewelry. Water and chemicals can damage the stones and/or the jewelry settings. In addition, please protect your pieces from extreme temperatures and direct sunlight as some colors of the Topaz have been known to fade over time.

When it comes to cleaning your pieces, wipe them down with a clean cotton cloth that has been slightly dampened with water, then towel dry. If they need a little deeper cleaning you can use an approved gemstone cleaner or take your pieces into a professional jeweler for best results. Make sure to store them separately in a multi compartment jewelry box for safekeeping.

Check with your favorite jeweler for a lovely jewelry set in the stunning Imperial Topaz. You will have heads turning when they see the beautiful gemstone in any type of setting.
