Birthstone Jewelry: Imperial Topaz for November Birthdays



Topaz is born in a variety of colors—with blue being the most accessible—but precious topaz (sometimes called “imperial” or “yellow”) is associated with November birthdays, according to GIA. The yellow to pink to orange colors are more rare than blue, thus commanding higher prices—and creating gorgeous, sunset-inspired hues. Here are three lovely precious topaz jewels to consider stocking.
