About CitrinesCitrines offer a look and feel unlike any other. The deep honey color instantly evokes a vintage quality. The stone itself is a yellow or golden quartz while many are actually a light amethyst or smoky quartz heated to bring out a golden hue. In its natural state, citrine is a very light yellow color, a very rare form of the stone.
Citrine comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon, however most citrines have a deeper, golden, and almost orange-like hue rather than a lighter lemony shade of yellow. Despite their bold color, citrines actually are very complementary gems and look great with a variety of other stones, including aquamarines, emeralds, garnets, and of course, diamonds. Many citrines have a darker quality to them that can give off a rather autumnal nature. This is fitting, as citrine is the birthstone of November. Citrine engagement rings are a fantastic choice for a fall or specifically November birthday, engagement, or nuptials.
