Orpheus 9ct yellow gold bracelet set with eight facetted citrine. Inspired by the story of Orpheus and the Underworld. From Cassandra's Classic collection.
This bracelet measures approximately 7.5 inches long.
The design for the Orpheus bracelet was inspired by the story of Orhpeus, descending into the underworld to rescue Eurydice. The eight transparent stones of the bracelet represent the water he dived into, and eight being a lucky number reminds the wearer to be patient - a quality that Orpheus needed to work on.
Drawing from the French word "citron", lemon, a citrine gemstone emulates the vitality and freshness of the vivid yellow fruit, as a symbol for prosperity, success, and imagination. Burnished in shades of yellow, from clear glistening yellows to flaming oranges, they are thought of as gemmologist's gold. Pale stones remind Cassandra of white waterlilies, the brighter yellows of tumbling Banksiae roses, and the golden richer hues of autumnal dahlias. Natural citrine can be found in Brazil, Spain, and Madagascar. As November's birthstone, they are said to protect against evil thoughts, stripping away your negativity with a new-found zest for creativity and exciting pursuits.
