While citrine’s name derives, appropriately, from citrus and the citron fruit, the glowing, golden orange stone has always represented our sun and was believed to possess its powerful restorative energies. At the top end of the citrine scale are prime specimens like the Madeira citrine you see here. Madeira citrine is a darker, reddish-gold variety of citrine, named after the fortified wine made in the Madeira Islands just off the coast of Portugal.
Our Madeira Citrine Earrings are worth raising a glass to, in celebration of how beautifully it captures the radiance of our sun. Almost 9 carats of Madeira citrine is resplendent in a fancy briolette cut that makes the most of this stone’s gorgeous rich honey color. Crowned with almost .25 carats of white diamonds in a setting of 18K yellow gold.
