The Budget-conscious Shopper’s Guide to Vintage Citrines

Are there a lot of November birthdays on your calendar? Are you hoping to add a new birthstone jewel to your own collection during this month? Bringing gifts with the November birthstone, the citrine, is a wonderful way of celebrating. On the other hand, it can get pricey if you are buying for five or ten celebrants. Then there is the question what to buy for the older teen who has a birthday in November. You want to get her started on her very own vintage jewelry collection. At the same time, you do want to keep the gift under $1,000 – after all, she is still a teenager. We can help. Peter Suchy Jewelers have compiled a list of attractive citrine jewels that fit into any budget.

To further bring out the sparkle, there are 11 full-cut diamonds weighing a collective total of .05cts. They are set along the sides and middle of the attractive setting’s top.
