Made with intention and purpose; to be worn and treasured - this is the heart behind all of our handmade jewellery pieces.
Birthstone jewellery is a beautiful keepsake to honour the ones we love, and the ones we've lost. A precious gemstone to represent each month of the year.
Bright and sunny yellow Citrine and Topaz make up the birthstones for November, and Cirtine is the 13th wedding anniversary gemstone.
Citrine is part of the Quartz family of gemstones and is named such due to its beatiful lemon yellow colour. Its use in jewellery is famed and it was especially popular during the Art Deco period, where it was used in ornate pieces worn by Gretta Garbo and Joan Crawford.
The name Topaz was originally used to describe all yellowish gemstones, and it was not recognised that these were all different minerals until about 200 years ago! It was considered a sign of opulence and luxury, generosity and strength.
As this product has a dangling charm, we do not recommend this piece for small children.
The origin of birthstones are as old as they are mysterious. Whilst the first official Birthstone list was created in 1912, it's thought that its origins go back much further! About 3,000 back. In the book of Exodus a breastplate is described to be adorned with 12 precious stones. It was then theorised that these 12 stones represented the 12months of the year. The history is quite interesting and you can read more about Birthstones over on the BLOG.
November Birthstone Bracelet - Citrine and Topaz
Your aromatherapy bracelet is made for use with theraputic grade essential oils (we recommend and love doTERRA). Simply place one or two drops onto your fingers and massage into the Lava Beads. Allow the oil to be absorbed by the Lava before inhaling the beautiful aroma.
The scent will remain on your stone for up to 3 days depending on the oil. Simply layer additional oils to change or add to the scent.
Please be careful to avoid oils coming into contact with other elements of the lava jewellery as they may tarnish over time.
Semi-precious and precious gemstones require a little more TLC than stainless steel or metallic jewellery - please avoid wearing your gemstones whilst cleaning as the chemicals may damage the stones.
