The colour of citrine is obvious from the name, linked as it is to the French word for lemon, citron, but topaz can be found in a spectrum of shades, from light blue, violet and brown to yellow, orange, pink and, very rarely, red. Fittingly, it is believed this vibrant, many-hued nature is the reason the word topaz comes from tapas, the Sanskrit word for fire. For those who like to mark special milestones with gems as tokens of love, blue topaz is the fourth wedding anniversary stone, and citrine denotes three decades of marriage.

Both topaz and citrine have been popular gemstones since ancient times and people sometimes confused them, believing them to have the same powers. These gemstones may give strength, thwart magic spells and dispel anger; and for centuries, Indian cultures have believed that a topaz worn above the heart assures long life, beauty and intelligence. Whether you believe in such matters or not, wearing gemstone jewellery in colours you adore certainly adds an energy and sense of joie de vivre to everyday life. Here’s our pick of the best citrine and topaz birthstone jewellery for November.
