Glistening pastel rainbow fire polished topaz set in sterling silver ear studs
These earrings are a lovely example of fire polished topaz. They are an absolutely clear color with a rainbow finish that sparkles, purple, pink, orange or green depending on the angle and intensity of the light! Because they are reflecting through a clear gemstone the colors come out soft and pastel and the rainbow ends up matching any color around it. These earrings will go with anything! Add them to evening clothes for a little elegance, or wear them out on the town and party!
I am a geologist, not a gemologist, so it was not until I got into jewelry making that I encountered the term “fire polished”. I wondered, “Polished? With fire? Wouldn’t that blow up gemstones???” as I visualized the expensive shrapnel that would inevitably result. It turns out that fire polishing is a technique where an incredible iridescent rainbow of color is overlaid over an existing surface. So a fire polished topaz is a regular topaz that is given an exterior finish of color!
The stones in these earrings are 6 by 8 mm oval fire polished clear topaz. The settings are sterling silver.
