Topaz is believed to give the wearer increased strength and intellect. The ancient Greeks believed it could make the wearer invisible. It is also thought to calm anger and balance strong emotions. Others thought it a symbol of honour and strength. Topaz was believed to bring longevity and wisdom. For us, we think gifting Topaz is a symbol of love and affection.

Two varieties of Topaz deserve a special mention - Precious Topaz and Imperial Topaz. Precious Topaz is the intense yellow Topaz that is mainly found in Brazil, while Imperial Topaz was originally found as red crystal in Russia and later found in Brazil. These are the most expensive types of Topaz.
Citrine can range from a soft yellow up to a fiery orange, which is the most desired colour.

Citrine is part of the Quartz family. Citrine is said to be the “healing quartz” and supports vitality and promotes health. Like Topaz, it is believed to calm and heal, encourage prosperity and protect the wearer. Citrine makes for a good choice if you want an eye-catching ring or pendant with a larger gemstone.
