November’s here… and that only means one thing! A new gem of the month, this time: Citrine. Topaz is also considered as another birthstone for November, but we can revisit that later. I chose Citrine because it has a gorgeous golden yellow tone and can add a nice color accent. According to GemSelect , the stone is a variation of Quartz that is treated with light and changes colors depending on the heat it’s exposed to. Another fact is that Citrines for having healing properties and even bringing positive energy, prosperity, and success. It’s known as “Merchant’s Stone” because many business owners place them near cash registers to bring them success… I would stick to a marketing plan, but to each their own.
The stone, because of its many color variations, lends itself to so many design possibilities. These cocktail rings are on the edgy side for sure…

While these are more refined and toned down designs:
Loving the edgy side of the Citrine, but I have to say the more sophisticated designs are so feminine and classy, I’m leaning towards those.
