White Topaz vs Diamonds
April Birthstone - Diamond - Why White Topaz is a perfect substitute!
Individuals with April birthdays are said to be work-oriented, passionate, hard working and loyal folks, which makes them a handy friend to have.
If you are lucky enough to be born in April, you will likely already know that the April Birthstone is none other than the Diamond. This stone is known for its durability and healing powers, with the Diamond birthstone being a beacon for longevity, strength, beauty and happiness. What a stone!
The downside to this beautiful stone? Diamonds are extremely rare and as such, are extremely expensive.
What if we told you that we had a gemstone alternative to Diamond that looks equally as stunning, but also won’t break the bank?
Introducing… White Topaz!
White Topaz is the gemstone currently taking the world by storm, thanks to its similarities to the real deal.
White Topaz is the stone of peace, love, hope and inspiration. It is known to boost self-confidence, think more clearly and improve your memory.. all while looking incredible!
Why Choose White Topaz?
White Topaz is the perfect substitute for Diamonds for so many reasons. Want to know why?
One of the first questions people ask when they’re looking for jewellery is ‘What’s Your Budget?’ It’s not because they’re nosey or concerned your purchase won’t be enough – it’s more to keep you guided towards which pieces best suit your needs. A White Topaz is considerably more affordable than a Diamond!
White Topaz is a relatively hard stone, measuring an 8 on the scale of hardness to a Diamond’s 10. It is stunning paired with sterling silver and is sure to get you loads of compliments when you show it off!
White Topaz is virtually transparent and naturally colourless in nature, which is why it’s one of the most sought after gemstones when you’re shopping on a budget. Sure, it’s not as sparkly as a Diamond… but it’s pretty close! The larger the stone, the larger the chance of finding slight inclusions or discolourations, however, that is what makes each piece unique and special!
The bigger the Diamond, the bigger the price tag! Opting for White Topaz on the other hand, will allow your budget to splurge on a larger stone, one that will really turn heads. Ooh, la la!
If you’re looking for a jewellery design that you can wear comfortably for everyday use, a White Topaz is the perfect stone. They are affordable, shiny and unique – but they may require a little extra care when cleaning or performing daily chores/duties. A little bit of TLC goes a long way!
Make the switch to White Topaz!
If Diamonds are currently out of your price range, but if you still want a piece of jewellery that stands out from all the rest and looks stunning, White Topaz is the stone for you.
It’s all-natural and is very different to a laboratory created gem like Cubic Zirconia, so you are still getting the perks and the shine of a classic gemstone.
