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.
