CitrineCitrine derives its name from the French word for lemon "citron". It comes in a range of golden hues from lemon to straw to sun yellow to gold, as well as oranges, browns, and deep madeira red. Citrine's lively colors can brighten almost any jewelry style, and it combines especially well with yellow gold.
Occasionally, amethyst is found combined with citrine into a single gemstone called ametrine.
In ancient times, citrine was carried as a protection against snake venom and evil thoughts. It was also believed to give calmness and mental balance to its wearer.
Citrine, a form of quartz, with a ranking of "7" on the Mohs scale of hardness has excellent durability and is suitable for everyday wear.
Citrine is the birthstone for November.
Gemstone Pendant with DiamondDiamonds are among the most prized substances on earth. The name "diamond" comes from the Greek word "adamastos," meaning "invincible."
The value of a stone is determined by the "4 Cs" of cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
The cut is the factor that defines the brilliance of a diamond. Round brilliant cut is considered the "ideal" shape for a diamond because it maximizes a stone's sparkle.
Color indicates to the presence or absence of color in white diamonds. Colorless and near-colorless diamonds are the most valuable. There are even fancy natural colored diamonds in reds, pinks, blues, greens, yellows, browns and other colors. Fancies are valued for their depth of color.
Clarity of a diamond is based on the presence of surface or internal flaws within a diamond caused during its formation or during the cutting process. The fewer inclusions the diamond has, the more valuable the diamond will be.
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats (ct.). Each carat is divided into 100 points or approximately 200 milligrams.
Diamonds are simply crystallized carbon. With a ranking of 10 on the Mohs scale of hardness diamonds are the hardest known substance on earth.
Since only diamonds can scratch other diamonds, it's important to wrap and store your diamond jewelry pieces separately.
