Citrine: November Birthstone

Roslyn Jewelry Care & Tips Citrine, fashion, gemstones, Handmade Jewelry, November birthstone

Citrine, the gemstone that shines so bright  is the birthstone for November.

Named for the French word lemon, Citrine is a bright golden gemstone. When we first see it, the primary impression is the feeling and power of the sun. Imagine being recharged by the sun. It is known as a stone of abundance as it helps manifest and attract wealth, success and prosperity. Now who wouldn’t be attracted to that? Historically it is known as the “Merchant’s Stone ” because of its ability to manifest energy and wealth.  It is also  known to cultivate inner calm and wisdom. With all these attributes, you don’t have to be a November baby to fall in love with Citrine.

Citrine is a member of the Quartz family which is linked to the solar plexus chakra. This chakra lies just beneath the heart and aids in balancing our intentions- ‘you get back what you give’.  Citrine starts out as  clear quartz and when introduced to heat and some iron, it becomes yellow. The more heat, over time, the more golden the gemstone.

Sometimes  a faceted Citrine is used in jewelry design as a less costly substitute for Topaz. We have chosen to create this one special necklace using the radiant gemstone – described below by its designer, Beth.

Chunky Citrine Necklace

“A chunky necklace that is bold, bright and fresh. It’s minimalist design showcases the glorious gemstone.

A length of silver plate chain suspends amorphic citrine nuggets that vary in golden color from light yellow to deep amber. Dimension and texture are created by the two woven strands of semi-precious stones that fall to and fro, while golden yellow crystal briolettes are interspersed for extra sparkle…”

Wear Citrine with different styles and with todays trendy colors

See how it brightens up any outfit!

I loved going to work each day for 30 years as a professional career counselor. When I retired, I explored my creativity and regard for crafts until I discovered beading. At age 68 I turned my new found passion- jewelry design, into a business. At age 72 I took on learning about social media marketing and developing my computer skills. I am sharing my journey from inception, to frustration, to elation -in the hope of inspiring others that 'it is not too late to start again'. Welcome to my re-invention!

  1. Roslyn — I love citrine! Actually, I love all the warmer colored gems and stones, but citrine is like wearing gold — which goes with everything!

    I love reading about gemstones — what they mean, their significance in history — thanks for all the info.

      You are welcome Cathy Jennings. Love ‘citrine is like wearing gold’. With 12x months to choose from I’m sure I’ll be writing about other gemstones, especially those we use in our jewelry designs.

  2. I wasn’t even aware of citrine. I don’t seem to know people whose birthstone it is, at least not any that I share presents with. The outfits that you show in the images are really gorgeous too.

      Lumbie Miambo for JB Donadolo, Thanks so much for your compliment. Please drop me an email to [email protected] and expand on what you mean by ‘get a sample to evaluate’. Most of our handmade necklaces are one of a kind and you can view them on our website. I’m thinking- does it mean you want to see it live?

  3. My birthday is in November and have over the years had some Topaz jewelry but never knew about Citrine. Hmmm…might need to drop a few hints later today to certain children that have no doubt not even thought about a gift yet 🙂

      Firstly, have a very happy birthday. Chances are your children know that topaz is often given as a birthday gift. You coud always hint; look what I found out today.

  4. Citrine is a beautiful fall color and the birthstone of my marketing assistant. Your outfit pairings are great, I’ll send the photos along to her. Now is citrine a derivative of Topaz?

  5. Literally just brought a lovely piece of citrine back to give to my former husband to bring him abundance and wealth. 🙂 Love the stone and really enjoyed reading more about its resilience and attributes. The necklace you showcase is wonderful…as always. I’ve long had an attraction to citrine, although I don’t have any jewelry incorporating it. Thanks for the great info and the wonderful jewelry Roslyn!

  7. Beautifully showcased…and a stone I had never thought much about. Love hearing the stories behind it’s use and meaning. (I had a Spessartite Garnet for an engagement ring once…because of it’s meaning, now you’ve got me thinking on something citrine!).

    Think it’s connection to prosperity and the solar plexus chakra are real draws for me given the current stage I’m in.

    Thanks a bunch! Loving your blog…

    Laugh lots, Love more!

      Mama Red, so happy you are enjoying my blog. I appreciate your comments. My blog wends in and out of a variety of topics ladies can relate too. Keep you all on your toes.

  8. It is interesting to read about Citrine. The necklace Beth designed really shows off the beauty of the stones. I’m partial to silver chains so the combo of the design is very attractive to me.

  9. I have never been a huge fan of yellow… but this is a beautiful stone and added to an outfit, like the black on in your post would be adorable and a great way to add a bright color that one may not typically wear. Nice
