Creative Ways To Use Topaz In Jewelry

Creative Ways To Use Topaz In Jewelry

topaz beaded jewelryIn today's tough economic times, most people don't  have the same budget that they used to have.  Not only have people had to cut back on the essential items, but the extra type items have definitely taken a back seat.  Items that have taken the backseat are things like jewelry and expensive accessories.  Well if you have noticed, handmade beaded jewelry is definitely in these days as most fashion magazines show a model or celebrity wearing it.

Beaded jewelry has really taken off because people are able to make it themselves and the sky is the limit when it comes to creativity and design.  Many people like to use their birthstone when making these types of bracelets and necklaces to give the pieces special meanings.  One such birthstone is especially popular.  Topaz is the birthstone from the month of November and is used in many beaded jewelry creations.  Why is Topaz so popular?

The main reason is because of the look that Topaz has.  This type of birthstone has a very clean and clear look as you can see through it.  This is fun to make a part of a beaded jewelry piece as you can have shiny little Topaz beads that not only reflect light, but give some dimension and depth to your beaded jewelry creation.   This look is very popular as the Topaz beads usually come in the color blue, but can also come in other colors such as red, gold, and green.  With all of these different types of colors to choose from, it is easy to find the right Topaz beads to be able to match the outfit or look you are wanting to achieve.

Another reason why Topaz beaded jewelry is such a hot item is because of the cut of the beads.  Topaz is usually cut into very pentagonal shapes which give it many flat surfaces.  These flat surfaces do a fantastic job reflecting light which gives the Topaz a blingy feel.  This shimmer makes the jewelry look much more expensive than it really is as it glistens in most light settings.  Most people like having the appearance of wealth without having to spend the money, and Topaz is one of those secret birthstones that can give off that type of appearance.  

As you can see, beaded jewelry is getting more and more popular as people are saving money by creating their own pieces.  When pairing up beaded jewelry with the November birthstone Topaz, many people find the look they have been craving to pair with any outfit or accessory.

June’s Birthstone: The Ethereal Pearl

June’s Birthstone: The Ethereal Pearl

Pearl is June’s birthstone, lending its ethereal beauty to the traditional month for weddings. Since ancient times, when the month was dedicated to the Roman Goddess of marriage, it has been considered good luck to take marriage vows beneath June’s sunny skies. Even today, one cannot imagine June without conjuring images of brides in lace and, of course, pearls.
July’s Birthstone: Ruby Passions

July’s Birthstone: Ruby Passions

July’s birthstone is ruby. Given that July is a month dedicated to Julius Caesar—a dictator who died in a pool of his own blood--the red gemstone seems somehow appropriate. But then, July has always been a month for red hot passions, whether murderous rages or ardent love affairs. In that respect, with its own internal fire, ruby is the ideal birthstone for the hottest month of the year.
August’s Birthstone: Peridot, the Evening Emerald

August’s Birthstone: Peridot, the Evening Emerald

August's birthstone is peridot, a yellow-green gemstone that glows like a firefly on a hot, lazy night. In color, peridot can range from olive to cat-eye green. And unlike cool emerald, with its pine-forest overtones, peridot calls to mind warmer climes. Reminiscent of lemon wedges, watermelon rinds and pistachio ice cream, peridot seems to capture all the memories of summer as of it fades.

Emerald City - May Birthstone Gemstone

Emerald City - May Birthstone Gemstone

In the beloved movie “The Wizard of OZ,” Dorothy merrily skips along the yellow brick road on her way to find the Emerald City. Although it is a work of fiction compliments of L. Frank Baum, it is true that over the centuries emeralds have possessed a magnetic draw rife with mystical legend and lore. Ancient Egyptians wore them as a symbol of fertility, Cleopatra loved them so much that she had her own mines built, and the Incas worshipped the verdigris stone as a god.

April’s Birthstone: Diamond Showers and Spring Flowers

April’s Birthstone: Diamond Showers and Spring Flowers

April showers bring May flowers, so what better birthstone than diamond to represent that glistening awakening? Like nourishing raindrops on a sunny day, clear diamonds cast dazzling rainbows whenever exposed to the sun.

In fact, it was once believed that diamonds were made by the very rainstorms which loosened them from their deposits and swept them into riverbeds. The ancients who found diamonds washed ashore likened them to the tears of the gods, fallen stars. Some even believed that diamond gemstones were the physical manifestation of lightning bolts.

March Birthstones: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

March Birthstones: Aquamarine and Bloodstone

Aquamarine is March’s birthstone and its blue and green hues help usher in the springtime thaw. Greener aquamarine gemstones herald the arrival of Saint Patrick’s Day and springtime flowers while the bluer stones bring Easter Eggs to mind. 

Aquamarine is both the color of sea and sky, and was always considered to be a traveler’s stone. Sailors in ancient times carved aquamarine into shapes honoring Neptune and slept with the gemstone beneath their pillows to see them home safely. Ancient Egyptians often put aquamarine beaded jewelry in their tombs to ensure a successful journey to the afterlife.
December Birthstone - Turquoise and Blue Topaz

December Birthstone - Turquoise and Blue Topaz

Turquoise is December's birthstone, blue as a winter sky or a Christmas forest. These cool turquoise shades have endeared December’s birthstone to cultures from antiquity to today. Even though this opaque gemstone brings to mind the native tribes of the American Southwest, historically, the largest source of turquoise beaded jewelry was the Middle East.
