Birthstones add a personal touch to a piece of jewellery. Many cultures, from East to West, have historically enjoyed birthstone traditions. The birthstones most commonly referenced in the UK today originate from the National Association of Goldsmiths. They created their list in 1937 based on an earlier list created by the American National Association of Jewellers in 1912.
The November birthstone is citrine. This quartz gemstone is often sourced in Brazil, Bolivia, Africa and Russia. Its natural hues are pale yellow or orange and can appear as a darker reddish-brown. Naturally-occurring forms of this stone are hard to come by, so heat-treated amethyst is often used to recreate citrine.
Citrine was once known as "the merchant's stone" due to a belief that the stone could bring financial prosperity. What's not to love about that?!
Needless to say, jewellery featuring citrine is a brilliant gift idea for anyone with a November birthday. Take a look at some of our favourite examples of beautiful November birthstone jewellery!
