Citrine the Birthstone for November
What is Citrine?
Citrine is a popular type of crystal that is known for her properties of abundance, prosperity, and positivity. The name comes from from the French word citron, which means lemon. Like these citrus fruits, citrine comes in many different shades of yellow and orange. As it's a natural stone, colour and inclusions may vary from piece to piece – but this will make your citrine crystal all the more unique and special, which is why it’s loved by so many!
She's the birthstone of November and is sometimes known as ‘the stone of happiness.’
Citrine is associated with positivity and optimism, which is not surprising given its cheerful bright and sunny colour. Wearing it can bring on feelings of success and joy, and it really does have a unique energy about it. We love its radiant colour and shine!
Can I wear it if November is not my birth month?
Of course! It may be November’s birthstone, but Citrine is a favourite amongst jewellery lovers everywhere – it’s hard not to love with its gorgeous yellow tones and vibrant aura.
Citrine’s joyful yellow hues will brighten up anyone’s mood – and you don’t have to be born in November to enjoy these beautiful gems. Treat yourself or someone you love, with a bit of sunshine in your jewellery!

How do I wear and store my Citrine Jewellery?
Citrine gemstones are ideal for wearing daily.
While they are strong enough to withstand daily wear, it is important to take care and avoid sharp blows to the stone. When not in use, your jewellery should be stored carefully to avoid contact with other hard materials which could break, chip, or scratch the gem.
We recommend storing your citrine pieces in one of our beautiful Desiderate Jewellery Boxes.
To keep your citrine jewellery clean, remove your pieces before applying lotion or creams or while using cleaning products. You can clean your pieces using mild dish soap in water or a polishing cloth.
