This is a safe treatment and has no impact on the metaphysical properties of the gem. The only downside is that the treated blue topaz can be prone to discoloration over time, so it’s important to keep your jewelry clean and free of chemicals, especially when wearing it regularly. It is recommended to keep this stone away from liquids, especially perfumes, hairspray and household cleaners as these can be absorbed by the stone and cause damage over time. Using an ultrasonic cleaner or steaming is also not advised as these can cause the stone to crack and break. When cleaning your blue topaz ring, it is best to gently rub it with a soft cloth or brush and warm soapy water. Do not use hot water as this will weaken the structure of the gem. A light dusting with a dry cloth is also acceptable. Avoid sudden temperature changes and exposure to sunlight, as these can also affect the stones color.
