Coming from the Sanskrit word tapaz meaning fire, the November birthstone Topaz is both brilliant and beautiful. The strength and hardness of this gemstone makes it perfect for daily wear – even by those of us who are hard on our jewelry! While Topaz comes in a myriad of colors, traditionally the orange/yellow topaz is considered the birthstone for November.
Attributed to the sun and valued in folklore as a guardian against all forms of evil, Topaz was believed to enable its wearer to tame wild beasts and fend off evil spirits in ancient Babylon and Egypt. Topaz was once thought to guard against sudden death, increase wisdom, and strengthen the mind. Today, it is considered my many as the gemstone of friendship.
The Something About Silver jewelry collection offers a variety of sterling silver necklaces, rings, and bracelets that would make excellent gifts for anyone with a November birthday. Just personalize whatever piece of jewelry you like with a name, initial, or meaningful word and add a topaz birthstone charm for a little sparkle!
