November Birthstone Jewelry

Citrine and topaz are both choices for November birthstone jewelry. The first ranges from pale yellow to brownish-orange in color. Citrine was a favorite gem in the Victorian era. The second, topaz, occurs in a variety of colors including honey yellow and fiery orange. Throughout history, healing powers have been attributed to both gemstones. Yellow and orange, warm hues, are associated with sunshine, joy, and energy. Color psychologists recommend wearing them when we want to evoke cheerful feelings or convey a sense of playfulness. Even if your birthday isn’t in November, these gems will enliven your wardrobe. For tips on adorning yourself with citrine and topaz, read this blog post.

    Brown & Golden Topaz & Gold Scroll 1950s Pendant Earrings by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,

    These 1950s ear clips by Elsa Schiaparelli feature multiple stones in a gold-tone setting. At the top, a large, faceted, round golden-topaz glass stone is positioned to adorn your earlobe. This stone is linked to a smaller, faceted, round brown-topaz-glass stone, which is connected to the setting of the pendant. This focal point – the pendant – is a large, faceted, open-back, brown-topaz-glass stone in an ornate setting. Its top is crowned with diamanté; the bottom rests on a scroll accented with another brown topaz. Please note that the dark striations in the large stones shown by my camera are not visible when the earrings are worn. Though not signed with the maker’s name, the ear clips are marked with the utility patent for one type of finding Schiaparelli used. The design of these pendants is undoubtedly hers – scroll down to see the matching bracelet.

    Brown Topaz & Citrine 1950s Schreiner Brooch & Earrings Set

    , ,

    This Shreiner brooch, the centerpiece of this 1950s set, features huge, multi-faceted, oval brown-topaz glass stones.

The earrings face each other, to frame your face. The dome-shaped brooch, which has a roll-over safety clasp, can also be worn as a pendant. The last photo shows that option on a black rubber cord, although you may prefer a gold chain. A 17-inch, 2mm black rubber cord with a stainless steel twist lock (just like the one in the photo) is included with this purchase.

    Citrine & Crystal 1920s Tiered Necklace

    , ,

    The design and construction of this tiered necklace, a variation on the 1920s chicklet-style, is first class. Golden yellow, square-cut glass stones alternate with oblong crystals to form the necklace and tiered centerpiece. Round dangling citrine-glass stones add the movement that was so essential in the Art Deco era. All of the stones are faceted and mounted in decorated, silver-tone metal. The construction makes me think this piece was made in Europe. This divine jewel, which I initially purchased for myself, closes with a spring-ring clasp.

    Citrine & Gold Spray 1950s Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    A richly-textured, gold-plated leaf forms the base of this lovely 1950s brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli. The top layer has citrine-glass-stone flowers with pavé silver-tone stems.

This lovely example of 1950s tailored jewelry is a winner!

    This calla lily brooch is a rose-gold-plated sterling silver ribbon tied in a three-looped bow. Three stems of flowers with citrine-glass navette centers sit on top, and three tiny navettes tie the stems together. This 1940s Retro Modern creation has a roll-over safety catch. Until I saw the drawing on the design patent (in the last photo), I thought the brooch should be worn the other way around, so the flowers are reaching for the sky! The photos show the brooch both ways, so you can decide. This lovely Adolph Katz design for Coro’s high-end line, Corocraft, was also made with multi-colored stones – scroll down to see it.

    Citrine, Golden Topaz & Mother of Pearl 1950s Brooch & Earrings Set by Alice Caviness

    , ,

    This 1950s set by Alice Caviness features amazing layers of components wired onto a decorative brass frame. Included are citrine glass stones in multiple shapes and sizes, faceted golden-topaz beads, mother-of-pearl disks, aurora borealis diamanté, and textured brass leaves. The brooch is shaped like an oval wreath, with the jeweled frame mounted on another that holds the pin and roll-over safety clasp. Each earring has a jeweled frame mounted on a round filigree back with the ear clip. The complexity of the design and construction seen here are often present in this maker’s work, which I believe is underrated. This set is definitely not for the faint-hearted! I will include the matching bracelet, which has only three of its four strands of beads, but it is definitely wearable. Scroll down to see a similar pair of earrings by the same maker.
