November Birthstone: Topaz

November birthdays claim topaz and citrine as their birthstones. Astrologically speaking, monthly birthstones symbolise the month of birth according to the Western (Gregorian) calendar. In this blog, we will talk you through the meanings and properties behind beautiful sparkly topaz!

Topaz borrows its name from the Greek word topazion, which means 'fire'. It was hugely valued by the Greeks and Romans, as well as later in Saxon Germany. The stone is sourced in Brazil, Nigeria, Australia, and Mexico and rated an 8 on the Mohs hardness scale, making it quite durable. Topaz is often worn to help promote good fortune, protect against emotional difficulties, and enhance concentration, and topaz jewellery is also given in celebration of the 4th and 19th marriage anniversaries.

Good news for all the November-borns: topaz comes in an assortment of different colours, including white, blue, yellow, and pink, so you’ll have plenty of choice about the hints you decide to drop for your chosen piece of jewellery for Christmas!

Versatile, colourful, and durable, topaz is one of the most used gemstones in Augustine Jewels' ready-to-wear jewellery collections. Not only does it elevate any look any time of the season with its lovely sparkle but it also suits any skin tone, eyes, and hair colour. It is truly one of the most versatile yet beautiful gemstones out there.
