Let’s Talk About:  This Season’s Citrus colours; Oranges and Lemons including Citrine, fit for a Duchess

This Season’s hot look in Fashion are all the sharp Citrus colours, from warm, deep orange to crisp buttery yellow and all shades in between! HRH Kate, Duchess of Cambridge is on point with her fabulous, opulent Citrine gemstone ring. So, I want to bring you, ‘on point’, talking to you about an array of amazing and unusual Gemstones that range through this colour palette.

Let’s start with the already mentioned Citrine from the Quartz family. Natural Citrine in a pale yellow is the rarest, mostly found in Brazil. Although, in Scotland we do find Quartz in rich shades of Orange, Brown or Gold known as Cairngorm Citrine. The Citrine colour varies from the palest lemon, through bright, buttercup Yellow to the deepest warm Orange and ranges across all price points. Choose a size, shape, or colour to fit your hand, skin tone and purse. Why not ask about unusual, experimental shapes or cuts just to make it interesting!

If you like your Gemstones luxurious, why not enquire about Sapphires, they are not just Blue! At Biagio the Jewellers, look at an amazing 12ct Pear shaped Sapphire of a delicate meadow-flower yellow, enhanced with scintillating Diamonds.

From the Beryl family why not look at a Heliodor, linked with the sun, which in a Gem quality are found in Brazil or Madagascar. Or a Golden natural Zircon from Thailand, believed to provide the wearer with wisdom!

Moving into the Oranges, look for a Fire Opal. Unlike its multi coloured relatives, it has a deep burnt orange colour and can be faceted like other Gemstones.

What about a Hessonite Garnet equally warm and rich in Orange colour and from the Garnet range also comes Demantoid of a rich, sweet sherry colour once known as Topazalite. So much for you to ask about.

We certainly cannot leave out Amber, one of the oldest known natural gemstones, so many different shades of Oranges and Yellows and a myriad of other shades all of which can be so affordable
