Sterling Canyon would like to remind everyone that they shouldn’t fear buying Blue Topaz jewelry this Christmas season.
Back in 2007, it was permitted in the United States to sell artificial Blue Topaz. Fake Blue Topaz was sold to unsuspecting consumers by the likes of K-Mart and Sears. It seems that there was fake Topaz circulating amongst the unsuspected. The Nuclear RegulatoryCommission now requires all Blue Topaz to be irradiated to test for authenticity. In 2008, if the Blue Topaz did not have the NRC certification, it was probably fake! In 2011 and beyond, Topaz must be certified authentic to make it into the mainstream retail circuit in the U.S. This new regulation went into effect November 30, 2007. The retailers have had plenty of time to clean out their stock of artificial Topaz. The good news this year is you shouldn’t have to ask for an authenticity certificate. Unless you purchase your Blue Topaz from ChinaTown. Federal regulations does have its benefits.
