Sterling silver is a popular band choice for topaz rings. Silver accentuates topaz with the same level of attractiveness and style as white gold or platinum, but at a lower price range. With all of the design varieties available, it is easy to find the perfect silver topaz ring for any occasion.
The most basic style of topaz ring is the solitaire, with a single stone set in the silver band. Topaz is available in a wide variety of colors, and silver bands are especially popular for blue topaz. However, silver complements other colors as well, including white and pink. As for the cut of the stone, it is possible to find topaz in virtually any cut you can think of. Due to the nature of the stone, some cuts are more common than others are, such as ovals and pear-shapes. Topaz also works well accentuated by smaller stones or in multiple stone settings, whether they are all topaz or include other types of stones.
When choosing a silver-banded ring, be sure to pay attention to the band itself as well as the stone. Many rings are available with creative and intricate bands, adding to the interest of the setting and the overall appeal of the ring. A distinctive band can help set a ring apart from others, even with the same stone and cut.
Prices for silver topaz rings fall within a wide range, but are more reasonable than prices for gold or platinum rings. The price of a ring depends on many factors, most notably the color of the topaz. Topaz often undergoes treatments to change its color, and whether a color is natural or had to be induced will greatly affect the price. Still, it is quite possible to find attractive rings with several different colors of topaz for under $100, and some under $50. If expensive stones such as diamonds are also included in the setting, the price will rise accordingly. The intricacies of the band can play a part in the price of a ring as well, but since sterling silver is a relatively inexpensive material it is often possible to splurge a little more on the stone itself, helping to make the ring that much more special.
