There is sometimes nothing more beautiful than when a birthstone is apart of an engagement ring. The connection between an engagement ring and bride becomes that much stronger with the inclusion of their matched birthstone. Every month and every stone is special in its own way, and November is no different. The two birthstones for November are Topaz and Citrine.
Topaz, which is November’s primary birthstone has had an extremely confusing history. Over time, primarily in antiquity, Topaz had been often confused and mixed up with Citrine due to their common color. Topaz is available in a rainbow assortment of colors. There are different forms of Topaz which include colors such blue, orange, yellow, orange-brown and more. The Orange/Golden/Yellow Topaz is the traditional November birthstone and also the most valuable type of Topaz. Topaz is used for jewelry, rings, necklaces, bracelets, and more.
Citrine, has commonly been known under the name gold topaz. The name is derived from its color, the yellow of the lemon.
