From the 15th through the 20th centuries Onyx was the birthstone for July. It was changed to Ruby in 1912! Onyx is also the traditional gift for the 7th wedding anniversary, and alternate gift for the 10th wedding anniversary.

This is such a sophisticated necklace. Definitely for the woman who has a few dark secrets of her own (and don't we all)!

The pendant is a vintage pendant from the 60's and features elaborate Bali Silver surrounding a substantial faceted Citrine. Including bail, the pendant length is just a tad over 2", and the width is 1.75".

The necklace is 8mm Black Onyx punctuated with tons of Bali Silver. The length, including the Thai Hill Tribe silver clasp is 23".

Let the mystery begin!

History, legend and lore:


Citrine is the birthstone for the month of November, sharing the title with topaz. In fact, the citrine stone has been used to imitate topaz and was once called Brazilian topaz. Citrine is also the gemstone that celebrates the 13th anniversary of marriage. Citrine is named after the French word Citrin, meaning lemon. The color of citrine ranges from straw and sun yellow to clay orange, to deep, wine colored Madeira red. In the past, the Madeira colored stones were the most valuable, but today, the more vivid yellows and oranges are the most popular. Natural bright yellow citrine is the rarest of the quartz varieties.

Citrine has been popular for thousands of years and used to be revered for its rarity, though that has changed with time. The ancient Romans used it for beautiful jewelry and intaglio work. It was also very popular for jewelry in the 19th century. During the Art Deco period between World Wars I and II, large Citrines were set in many prized pieces, including the massive and elaborate Art Deco inspired jewelry pieces made for big Hollywood stars such as Greta Garbo and Joan Crawford.

Citrine was one of the stones used in the breastplate of the High Priest. In ancient times, it was carried as a protection against the plague, skin problems, snake bites, and evil thoughts.

Known as "The Merchant's Stone", Citrine is said to bring prosperity when placed in a cash register as if drawing the money there.

Since Citrine is reported to hold no negativity, it never requires cleansing or clearing.

Onyx is the Mystical birthstone for the month of December. It is also the birth stone for the Zodiac sign of Leo.

Onyx is also given on the 7th and 10th wedding anniversary.

Onyx is a Chalcedony Quartz that is mined in Brazil, India, California and Uruguay. It has a fine texture and black color; however some Onyx also displays white bands or ribbons against a black or brown background and this variety is known as Sardonyx.

Onyx is a protective stone worn when facing adversaries in battles of conflicts of all kinds, or while hurrying down a dark street late at night. In classical ceremonial magic, the image of the head of the god Mars or a figure of the hero Hercules was engraved on Onyx and carried for courage. Indians and Persians believed that wearing Onyx protected them from the evil eye, and that placing Onyx on the stomach of a pregnant woman in labor would reduce the labor pain and bring on earlier delivery.

Onyx is not only used for protection, but also as defense against negativity consciously directed towards you. It has also been used to reduce uncontrollable sexual impulses. The close union and yet strong contrast between the layers of black and white in some varieties of Onyx may suggest its connection with romance. In India, Gemologists recommend Onyx as a protective measure for harmonious relationships, thus keeping away any probability of disturbances or differences between the couple. Onyx as a birthstone provides the structure and authority you crave.

It can help you be the master of your destiny and strengthen your confidence. It provides support in difficult times and centers your energy in times of mental or physical stress. It also offers the gift of wise decisions.
