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
-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 gorge items I may consider. (in no particular order)
Disa Allsop cushion cut citrine ring
Nak Armstrong labradorite and citrine earrings
Happy November birthday!! xo

I figured you’d like the Disa Allsopp spaghetti ring best, mom. 😉
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!
I can see you enjoying the power of citrine, Megan! xo
I love it all but the Nak Armstrong earrings are amazing as well as the spaghetti ring.
Those earrings are one of Nak’s classic designs. I pretty much love every single thing he creates!
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!
My pleasure! 🙂
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.
What a fantastic story! Thanks for sharing, Elise.
