December’s birthstone, Blue Topaz, is known for high refractive index and ability to take a fabulous polish, making it ideal for fancy and non-traditional cuts. Blue Topaz begins as a colorless or very lightly tinted topaz crystal, and neutron or electron bombardment is what creates its unique hue.
Blue Topaz is a symbol of wisdom and longevity, and was thought to give strength to the wearer in ancient Greece. Blue Topaz comes in a wide variety of shades, from sky blue to London blue, and is the perfect centerpiece for pendants, earrings, brooches, and rings. Just make sure to save it for special occasions- its cleavage makes daily wear a bit risky.
PLACES TO GO : The Raleigh Ringers
The Raleigh Ringers are an internationally acclaimed handbell choir that are based right here in Raleigh! They have been traveling the world and bringing joy to their audiences since 1990- and seeing them perform in their hometown is nothing short of incredible. Catch the Raleigh Ringers at the Duke Energy Center on December 9th and 10th.
PLACES TO EAT: Brewery Bhavana
Recently rated one of the Top 10 New Restaurants in the Country by Bon Appetit, Brewery Bhavana is a welcome addition to downtown. It’s a hybrid dim sum restaurant, brewery, bookstore and florist- and believe it or not, they do each of these endeavors extremely well! Some of our favorite dishes include the bone marrow scallion pancakes, duck egg rolls and of course- the dumplings!
