This is a spectacular piece that would look fabulous on anyone. Each piece I create is made from start to finish with a creative and artistic soul in mind. The ring is made with a Citrine cabochon set in .925 Sterling silver with a unique textured band. The ring measures at a size 9 3/4. My jewelry is intended to make you stop, look twice and think?????
Please understand that handcrafted jewelry is just that, handcrafted. It is not perfect, slight variations are what gives handcrafted jewelry its unique character.
Citrine is one of many varieties of the mineral Quartz, which is available in more colors than any other mineral – Rose Quartz, Amethyst, Smoky Quartz, Aventurine and Praseolite are among the other varieties used in jewelry, and are all identifiable by their color. Citrine is the most common Quartz gem. It takes its name from the French word for lemon, even though the most prized Citrines are more brownish red or reddish orange (if it is too yellow, it’s simply called “lemon quartz”). The color comes from traces of iron.
Natural Citrine can be found in the Ural Mountains of Russia and in Madagascar. Most Citrine – that is, heat-treated Amethyst – comes from Brazil. Amethyst and Citrine colors can occur together in the same crystal in some gems in Bolivia. These unique stones are called Ametrine.
