November birthday ladies are luckier than most. They have two beautiful birthstones to choose from—topaz and citrine. They are unique gemstones that come in a diverse mix of rich colors and are believed to bring the wearer warmth and good fortune.
Topaz, revered for its powers to protect and heal, remains a modern day symbol of love and affection with worldwide appeal. Presenting itself in a wide array of hues, the rarest of topaz is most valuable in deep Imperial orange with pink undertones. Today topaz is most commonly found in blue, as jewelers have discovered how to enhance the colorless gemstone, varying its appeal without any change in the stone’s shape or size.
From Marco Bicego’s Jaipur collection, this ring presents the blue topaz with simplicity and sophistication. The rose-cut cushion stone is bezel set in 18K yellow gold that has been hand-engraved by Italian artisans to create a piece that represents the combination of Old World tradition and contemporary design, a hallmark of collection.
On the other side of the topaz color spectrum sits this sunny pendant necklace from designer Suzanne Kalan. The 14K yellow gold necklace features a luxurious champagne topaz barrel hanging east-west style on an 18-inch chain. The stone is bezel set in diamonds to enhance this elegant piece.
The white topaz attributes really shine in this beautiful pair of handmade drop earrings from New York’s Getana & Co. These transparent round stones are set in a 14K gold scalloped bezel and hang from a lever-back post to create a classic, polished look.
November’s second birthstone, the citrine, is equally alluring. Said to be a gift from the sun, the warm citrine has long been considered a healing gemstone. French for lemon, the citrine can be found in golden shades ranging from pale yellow to rich orange. One of the most popular of all gemstones, the citrine is associated in modern times with wealth, success and prosperity.
Getana & Co. delivers again, this time with a beautifully classic pair of handcrafted citrine earrings. Round citrines are the centerpiece of these sophisticated 14K yellow gold studs while diamond halos provide just the right amount of sparkle.
Add a fresh pop of color to your fashion statement with this mixed gemstone cuff from one of our newest Julie Vos collections. Fashioned of 24K gold plate, this hinged bracelet from the Byzantine collection is set with synthetic sapphires, citrine and blue chalcedony. Classically inspired yet thoroughly modern, this piece is designed to be as comfortable as it is beautiful.
And for the November girl who can’t choose just one stone, an option from Marco Bicego that offers the best of both worlds. From the Jaipur collection, handcrafted in 18K yellow gold, feature both November birthstones plus green tourmaline. Inspired by a tropical Indian sunset, these vibrant, multicolor gemstone studs are the perfect addition to any jewelry collection.
