White Topaz is a very hard and lovely mineral that has been known and valued both in ancient and modern times. Topaz naturally comes in yellow, brown, red, pink, and colorless varieties, but is also available in modern times in several shades of blue through treatment with irradiation. White Topaz is a great alternative to a diamond. Topaz can be found in Brazil, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Russia. Topaz is a very hard gemstone, an 8 on the Mohs scale of hardness; it can be split with a single blow and should be protected from hard knocks. Topaz has become a quite exotic stone and is sometimes confused with the quartz topaz, but topaz in its pure form is quite beautiful and exotic.

White gold is alloyed with nickel, copper, and zinc--and while it looks similar to platinum, it has a vastly different content. To give white gold its white luster, in the final process of manufacturing white gold is rhodium plated. Rhodium* is a shiny, white metal, which is quite hard and durable; however, over time the rhodium plating may wear away, revealing the slightly yellowish tint of the underlying metal. To keep white gold looking its best, it may require rhodium re-plating every 12 to 18 months, depending on wear.
*A hard, durable, silvery-white metallic element that is used to form high-temperature alloys with platinum and is plated on other metals to produce a durable corrosion-resistant coating.
