November's Birthstones: Topaz and Citrine


November's Birthstones: Topaz and Citrine

Bursting with the colors of autumn leaves, November’s birthstones heat up your fall wardrobe with their fiery glow. Rustic and one-of-a-kind, raw stone jewelry in November’s colors is the perfect complement for textured knits and soft sweaters. Our November collection of handmade birthstone jewelry features these two stones both solo and in dazzling combinations that rock fall’s colors.

Topaz: Wearable Fire

Legend has it that topaz’s name came from the Sanskrit word meaning “fire,” says the Gem Institute of America. Who are we to argue with the ancients? With colors that range from sunny yellow to vivid orange-red--and even blue and white--topaz captures fire within every stone.

That fire within has sparked a wealth of stories about the stone’s magical powers. In the Renaissance, Europeans credited topaz for breaking spells and creating a sense of calm during disagreements. In India, many people believe that wearing topaz above your heart will grant you intelligence, beauty, and long life.

Whether or not it can dispel bad juju, topaz creates its own magic with these go-with-everything tiny studs.

Even today, many people believe that wearing topaz brings clarity when you’re facing a tough challenge. If so, when you pair its gleaming white version with pearl, Herkimer diamonds, and other stones thought to enhance clarity and truth, white topaz jewelry will be your go-to gems to wear at your workplace.

This ombre ring is set with white topaz and other stones rumored to bring insight, done in a dazzling array of whites from warm to cool.

Citrine—Autumn’s Magic Captured in a Stone

Along with topaz, citrine is the natural choice for a November birthstone. With colors that range from pale yellow to brownish-orange, this quartz variation echoes the colors of autumn leaves and shining sunlight. Whether or not you enjoy a November birthday, a collection of citrine jewelry is a fall fashion essential.

Rare in nature, citrine stones today usually come from heat-treated amethyst, another quartz variation. Whatever its origin, its blazing tones have accented fall wardrobes from the Victorian era onwards.

These citrine studs are about as far from Victorian as you can get. Raw stones sparkle from a modern 14-karat gold setting to set off your fall wardrobe to perfection.
