My bad- this ring did not sell this Christmas, and I showed it to everybody, so as we closed our store on Christmas Eve, I asked Brad to size the ring for me, and I kept it. Sorry, too cool, I had to keep it. I'll be glad to cut another square star topaz for you- there are several on my faceting machine right now. Diane

Wedding Rings from Home
We've had so many folks come in wanting to use Texas topaz for wedding rings, we decided why not, let's go there. My wedding ring has a Texas topaz, after all- in a star cut, of course. We now have a nice selection of rings to show you, as well as look at even more custom options on the computer. Just think- a wedding ring from Home, and you know I mean Texas.
Our topaz is most commonly clear, and in a star cut it's just that much better than a diamond 'cause it's TEXAS. It also comes in a pale blue. We offer star cuts in round, but also in square (think Princess cut) and rectangular. If you insist on being a Texan flying under the radar, we offer gems in regular round brilliant cut. Be aware that just because it's in a wedding ring, topaz can't be abused and worn while you're doing chores. It's a sturdy gem, but even diamonds are damaged when not treated right.
In addition to the classic gold, we also offer wedding bands in a variety of materials. We carry bands in tungsten steel, cobalt, titanium, and ceramic. We also have bands and rings in sterling silver. With the price of gold being what it is, it makes sense to have other options, and these contemporary materials are beautiful and durable. The ceramic even comes in pink!
The ring featured in this ad is 14kt white gold, but is also available in white, yellow, and rose gold. It has 52 diamonds, with a total weight of 0.60ct. The ring can be adapted to a variety of topaz sizes, from 1 carat on up. The price is $1200 for a 1ct clear Mason topaz. The price of the ring is $1600 plus the cost of the topaz for larger sizes.

The Big Pink
I was looking at my Mason topaz rough recently (rough is what topaz is called when it comes out of the creek,) and realized that I one of the pieces was a pale pink. Pink- the rarest of the topaz colors. I was excited and jumping around- I finally had a piece of pink Mason topaz. This is one of the first gems that's been faceted from that rough. The gem is very large, 14.73ct, as I was trying to get as much color as I could. However, this is a Lone Star brilliant cut, and brilliant means that color will be sacrified for brilliance. It is way pale, but extremely beautiful. There are some eye visible needles, but you have to look hard to see them. The topaz is mounted in a sterling silver solitaire pendant and suspended from an 18 inch sterling wheat chain. $1650.00
The wine is from our local winery, Sandstone Cellars. Don Pullum signed the bottle for me at the Release Party. Yummy.
