The Making of Swiss Blue TopazUp until the 1970s, blue topaz was an extremely rare and expensive gemstone in the jewelry market, with the more common color of topaz being a yellowish-brown. Then, gemologists discovered that colorless topaz could actually be converted into blue topaz through radiation treatment using high-energy electrons or gamma rays.
These scientists discovered that the blue color achieved through radiation was consistent, durable, and didn’t fade with time or exposure to light—making this new blue topaz an excellent option for making beautiful and inexpensive Swiss blue topaz rings that are completely safe. Today, two main kinds of blue topaz are available on the market: Swiss blue topaz, featuring a bright blue color, and London blue topaz, in deep blue.
