Antique Citrine Jewelry

Victorian Citrine and Pearl Ring by Katie Kukulka

Citrine’s warm golden hue is the embodiment of sunshine. It’s richness is intoxicating and I can’t resist it. Luckily 18th and 19th century jewelers were also attracted to the stone. I’ve been fortunate to add a number of antique citrine pieces to my collection and they are some of my favorites.

Like all gemstones, citrine is said to have properties that transcend physical form. The stone is thought to be warming, energizing and able to activate creativity. It is also said to enhance concentration, raise self confidence and help to release negative fears. Citrine’s metaphysical traits are nearly as beautiful as the stone itself.
