I am also in love with darker blue stones and am torn between having a blue sapphire ring or a London blue topaz.  Am I right in thinking the London blue topaz is one of darker shades of blue topaz?

@tksjewelry:  So we opted against an e-ring and wedding band and I decided to go with one single wedding ring. My fingers are far to small to have an e-ring and a band. So here she is. I always thought I would want a saphire but fell in love with this beauty. Only 27 more days and she will be on my finger permanently.

14k White Gold Ring, Blue Topaz (1-3/8 ct. t.w.) and Diamond (1/5 ct. t.w.)  I love it!

Blue topaz is my birthstone. while I don’t have a London Blue (my favorite), I do have others – a necklace, earrings and a small ring.

Definitely love these London Blues!

I think my RHR is more of a Swiss Blue Topaz, but here it is:

(the pic doesnt do the colour justice)

I’ve worn this ring everyday for 12 years and it still looks great!

@Fantastagirl:  Your london blue topaz looks quite light – I thought they were usually dark or can you get different shades?  Looks beautiful anyway!

@Fantastagirl:  I see you also replied on my thread about getting rings from etsy.  Yours turned out pretty good!  I’ve seen one on there i really like but scared ot take the plunge even though seller has great feedback. 

Heres the blue topaz I like.

@anahappilyeverafter:  The one problem that I have had with my topaz is that it gets filthy quickly and looks almost black but it’s super easy to clean with warm soapy water and a toothbrush.

@Fantastagirl:  And how do you find the durability of it?  What about in the sunlight?  Does it appear lighter then?

@anahappilyeverafter:  It is much more durable than I expected. I’ve been wearing it daily for 2+ years (and I have not been gentle with it) and not so much as a chip or a scratch! It does appear lighter somewhat light in the sunlight , but it is not super sparkly when the stone it. dirty. It’s a stunning stone but it definatly needs to be better maintained than a diamond and you CAN NOT use any thing to clean it other than soapy water or the stone can get discolored

The rings that Tksjewelry posted are Oravo rings in sterling silver. They are pretty affordable…I was looking at the same designs but with amethyst or created alexandrite for a RHR.
