Cushion cut Citrine Citrine

Surely one of the richest hues in the spectrum, the golden tones of citrine look radiant paired with all the colors the season has to bring.  When paired with yellow gold, smokey topaz and lustrous diamond accents you get the perfect autumn accoutrement.  For a more subdued look a simple pairing in white gold lets you enjoy the richness of citrine in even the most conservative atmospheres.
