This classy pair of earrings features hand-cut marquise shaped Madeira Citrine drops (8x12mm) dangling inside open marquise shaped twisted sterling silver wire.
Citrine is named after the French word "citron", meaning lemon. The color of citrine ranges from straw and sun yellow, to clay orange, to deep wine colored Madeira red. The darker colors are considered more valuable, including the Madeira variety.
The custom oversized (30mm or approx. 1 3/16") sterling silver ear wires are hammered for added texture. Overall length of the earring is 50mm (approx. 2").
The gemstone Citrine is the official birthstone for the month of November as adopted by the American National Association of Jewelers in 1912. It is also the Planetary stone for the Sun Sign of Virgo and the accepted gem for the 13th and 17th wedding anniversary.
