The November birthstone is named for the French word “citrin,” which means lemon. Although the citrine’s tones are warmer and more golden than a lemon, the name still connotes the hue that is uniquely the color of November’s birthstone. However, the citrine’s hue can range from a very pale yellow to a dark amber tone known as Madeira for its resemblance to the red wine.
Citrine in its natural state is an extremely rare stone, so there is very little mention of the gemstone in ancient texts. The Romans may have been the first to use citrine by cutting it into cabachons, polished but unfaceted gems, but citrine was never as popular as it was in the eighteenth century, during the Romantic period. The pairing of the golden yellow gems with yellow gold created an intense effect the jewelry artisans of the period loved.

October’s birthstone treats the eye to an explosion of shimmering colors, not unlike those of a magnificent rainbow following a summer rain. The Opal derives its name from the Latin word “opalus,” meaning precious jewel.
A gift of Opal is symbolic of faithfulness and confidence. And the powerful energy radiating from this fiery gemstone will surely illuminate any occasion!
Pink tourmaline is one of the colors of the tourmaline family . Tourmaline or synthetic pink tourmaline is an alternate birthstone for October and an eighth wedding anniversary gemstone.
Pink tourmaline symbolizes the virtues of unconditional love and true friendship. For this reason, pink tourmaline is gaining popularity as an alternative to diamonds in engagement rings. Wearing pink tourmaline is thought to promote love, friendship, kindness, sympathy towards others and tolerance.
