November Birthstone: Citrine

Those of you lucky enough to be born in November have not one, but two birthstones! (If you missed last week’s article on Topaz, click here.) While topaz is known for it’s calming and balancing properties, citrine is here to bring you success and abundance. In fact, citrine used to be known as the “merchant’s stone” as traveling merchants always carried a piece with them to assure profitable sales. Coming in a range from pale yellow to brownish tones, it’s really a lovely stone.

Citrine sounds pretty darn awesome, bringing the wearer:

-cheerfulness and joy
-confidence
-self-esteem
-generosity
-personal power
-AND it combats negative energy

I’m loving this list! While I don’t (yet) own any pieces of jewelry with citrine, it might be the time to add some to my jewelry box. If I were, here are some of the gorgeĀ items I may consider. (in no particular order)

  1. Those rings are amazing. I agree — have to start looking into adding some citrine pieces…..and if you come across that bottomless wallet, please let me know!

  2. If we are putting in orders, I would like to buy some shares in the bottomless wallet and I’m going big ‘n blingy with the Sealeaf earrings. Love the story behind citrine! Thanks Amy!

  3. I was given a gold and yellow topaz ring for my First Holy Communion. Flash forward many, many years and I had the stone re-set for my 10th wedding anniversary. The designer identified the stone as a citrine, not a topaz, something I had guessed already. Fast forward again and two years ago I took the ring for an insurance appraisal. Imagine my surprise when the stone was revealed to be a yellow sapphire!!!!! How/why were my parents sold a yellow sapphire as a yellow topaz? A mystery for the ages.
