Vibrant oranges make for gorgeous earrings, necklaces, rings and bracelets. Sizzling citrine jewellery is truly warm and wonderful. Each citrine is carefully selected based on its colour characteristics. The QP® range of hand crafted citrine jewellery boasts transparency and zesty hues, making citrine one of the most eye catching gemstones available.
It may come as no surprise that citrine receives its name from the French word citron, which means "lemon". Citrine is classified as crystal quartz and has a rating of 7 on Moh's Scale of Hardness. This makes it a scratch resistant stone: a desirable property for any type of gemstone jewellery.
Citrine has been mined in Europe for many years: Spain, Germany, Hungary, France and Scotland have played host to citrine mines, but we think the best and most vibrant examples are found somewhat further afield in Brazil. To observe one of the hand selected Brazilian citrines almost gives the effect of looking into a hall of mirrors: orange and yellow shades are further emphasised by the crystal clarity of the gemstone itself.
