In keeping with the seasonal transition from Fall to Winter, the 11th month of the year marks the celebration of Citrine—the vibrant orange-yellow gemstone that seems to brighten the mood of each wearer, and every envious onlooker.
Citrines are both the Birthstone of the Month of November and the honorary gemstone of the 13th Wedding Anniversary. Their unique yellow hue, durable quality, and prominent symbolism have made Citrine a popular choice for gemstone jewelry for hundreds of years, and this year is no exception.
So, this month, in honor of Citrine’s radiant beauty, we explore the gemstone’s history, legacy, and meaning, as well as showcase highlights from Luvente’s Celebration of Citrine Gemstone Jewelry Collection.
The History of Citrine Jewelry
Deriving its name from the French word, “citron,” meaning “lemon,” Citrines are reminiscent of lemons in their bright, joyful coloring and lasting impression. The term was first used to describe these striking gemstones in 1385 and, since then, the Citrine has become a favorite gemstone for inclusion in November Birthstone Jewelry and is revered by fine jewelry enthusiasts seeking unusual and alluring coloured gemstone jewelry.
Believed to calm tempers and soothe angst, Citrines were leveraged by priests and talismans throughout the ages and are sometimes nicknamed “The Merchant’s Stone,” due to their legendary ability to assist with the manifestation of desires.
From ancient Greek rings and ornaments to Roman pontiffs and Victorian Era Scottish jewels, Citrines have adorned many noble fingers, stately costumes, and red carpet stars alike.
