As the end of the month draws near, it’s about time to start thinking about gift ideas for someone with a November birthday. November is a pretty interesting month because it has several birthstones associated with it. The big emphasis though is on the color yellow for this fall month.
November really has two main birthstones associated with it — yellow topaz and citrine. The yellow and orange-y yellow color of these stones are very appropriate for the season and are incredibly affordable stones, but also softer than some of the other gemstones we carry. At deBebians, we don’t carry yellow topaz, but we sell citrine jewelry.
Coincidentally, we recently had a pair of citrine studs that came out of production just yesterday. Check out their sparkle below!
Another alternate birthstone gemstone though for November is the yellow sapphire. Yellow sapphire is less known and less talked about, but it’s really a great option for birthstone jewelry as well. Sapphire is a mineral that comes in at about 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness while topaz and citrine are 8 and 7 respectively. Sapphire is also more pricey than these two more traditional stones, but you can get more out of that extra hardness.
Clearly though, from the three stones we’ve talked about, the theme for November is yellow or orange. There’s something about the fall that really brings out nostalgia and warmth for these colors and for other fall motifs like pumpkins and pumpkin spice and you can really get them in a wide variety of options from eternity rings to halo jewelry. The color itself is one that puts emphasis on ideas of wisdom, success, and knowledge. The yellow or golden color of these stones reflects the feelings we have about actual gold and are said to beckon financial success to their owner.
