As the temperature continues to drop, citrine can add some much-needed warmth into your life. It is often called the “gift from the sun” because of its golden glow. Citrine is the birthstone for November and is the preferred gift to give your loved one on your 13th wedding anniversary.


Citrine has a rich history and a fair amount of folklore. The name “Citrine derives from the word “citron”, which is the French word for “lemon”. This refers  to its lemony luster that is a perfect complement to the warm colors of the fall season. Throughout history, people have believed that citrine carried the power to calm tempers, soothe anger, and manifest desires. To leverage these powers, Egyptians used citrine gems as talismans, the ancient Greeks carved iconic images into them, and Roman priests fashioned them into rings.

Citrine was enormously popular in the 1940s because of its sunny color and dramatic proportions that suited the bold styles of the era. Today, citrine is relatively plentiful, and available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, making it ideal for someone looking for the perfect piece of jewelry to go with any outfit. Citrine is said to benefit you by helping the heart, kidneys, digestive tract, liver and muscles. Citrine is also known to promote creativity, help personal clarity, and eliminate self-destructive tendencies.

Modern jewelry designers love to set citrine in yellow gold and combined it with other gemstones. Here at Underwoods, we paired this citrine necklace with the warmer colors of smoky quartz and mokaite set in 18K rose gold. Overall, citrine is a timeless gemstone with plenty of interesting benefits, history, and folklore that we at Underwoods would be happy to help you discover more about.
