Simple and Modern Quartz Ring

I don't remember what this quartz is called. It was a long name so it didn't register in my brain at the time. I was too busy to write it down of course. I love the nostalgic 'pond growth' embedded in the quartz. So picture perfect. The second ring is golden hair rutilated quartz. I have a weakness for modern and simple cuts of stones.







Found the name of the first quartz: Dendritic Quartz.

Is that just a normal rock or does it have fossilized plant material in it? It's an amazing piece of natural artwork either way!

I just found out the name of it. It's Dandritic Quartz. Although the pattern appears as a fossilized plant, it is really inorganic manganese oxide.

I don't think I realized you had a blog! I LOVE your jewelry and these quartz rings may be my favorite. Angel hair quartz is so gorgeous, and I've never seen the dandritic before. Beautiful.

Will you be making any more of the dandritic quartz rings? I am a little bit devastated that you are sold out on your website!

Most of these special stone are one of a kind that I picked up. No more on this one! I love it too but good thing I no longer NEED to own and hoard. I'd be out of business if it was still a habit for me!

Very nice. I have a huge tourmalinated quartz that I've been meaning to do something with. This reminded me!

last year we were busy looking for an engagement ring that didn't look like an engagement ring...this is easier said than done! your pieces are EXACTLY what i was looking for, but couldn't find =( i love the stones and i love the very organic nature of the silver (a jewler told me it couldn't be done when i tried to have something commissioned). we ended up buying a jamie joseph ring, which i love...but i love your rings more... perhaps i'll hint at something from you for a 1 year anniversary gift?? =) i'm so glad i found your work today (via dear ada).

Wendy, Would love to see what your take on the quartz...especially a huge one!

Anon, I am so flattered. Jamie Joseph does wonderful work. She's one of the handful of jewelers I like.
