Rainbow colored, fire polished blue topaz set in sterling silver ear studs


These earrings are a lovely example of fire polished topaz.  They are a medium blue color with a rainbow finish that sparkles, purple, pink, orange or green depending on the angle and intensity of the light!  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, originally 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 round 6 mm fire polished blue topaz.  The settings are sterling silver.
