Sandwiched between the festivities of Halloween and the excitement of Christmas, the month of November is sometimes overlooked. But do not worry November babies, we definitely did not forget about you! And what is even better is that you have not one, but two spectacular birthstones to help you brighten up your birthday celebrations this month.
The November birthstones – topaz and citrine – are both known for their calming energies, bringing warmth and fortune to those who wear them. Topaz is a soothing stone that has been said to calm tempers, cure madness and eliminate nightmares (which may come in handy this time of year!).
Through much of history, all yellow gems were considered topaz and all topaz was thought to be yellow. But lucky for you, topaz is actually available in many colors.
Marco Bicego has almost an entire collection dedicated to blue topaz. The Jaipur Collection includes bracelets, necklaces and earrings in a variety of price points and styles. With so many options to choose from, there is no doubt that you will find the perfect piece – or pieces – of jewelry to wear on a celebratory birthday night out.
A clever gift for your favorite November baby that is harder to shop for could be this Philip Stein Horizon white topaz bracelet. Made with sterling silver, this piece provides natural frequencies around you to help you focus and relax.
If you are looking for something a little more personal for a November birthday gift, this customizable initial pendant by Doves could be perfect. Made with 18 karat rose gold, white topaz and diamonds, this piece can be customized with whatever initial you would like to create a treasured gift for a loved one (or yourself!).
November’s second birthstone, citrine, takes its name from the citron fruit because of the stone’s lemon-inspired shades which range from pale yellow to brownish orange. Citrine is sometimes known as the “healing quartz” for its ability to comfort, soothe and calm. It can release negative feelings, spark imagination and manifest fresh beginnings. It’s even called the “merchant’s stone” for its tendency to attract wealth and prosperity.
And lucky for you, Marco Bicego’s Jaipur Collection gives you a wealth of options and styles for citrine jewelry as well. These pieces really play off the golden coloring of the citrine stone to give you beautiful looks that are perfect for the tones of the autumn season.
You can take your pick of drop earrings, stud earrings, or stackable rings.
And if for some reason you cannot decide between topaz and citrine, do not worry! The Jaipur Collection has you covered once again…perhaps it should be called the topaz and citrine collection instead…
Both pairs of these double drop French wire earrings are made with 18 karat yellow gold. All you need to decide is which stone you would like to be more prominent: the yellow citrine or blue topaz. Decisions, decisions! You cannot go wrong either way.
Happiest of birthdays to our favorite November babies. While sometimes it may feel like your month is forgotten, we promise to always celebrate you with fantastic new jewelry to help you look your best both on your special day and all the days thereafter.
