RAW 52/23 - Gold Rutilated Quartz, Raw and Natural
Here's the gold rutilated quartz set in sterling. Instead of the usual gold rutiles running through clear quartz, these needles are buried in white translucent quartz. That surface is so bold and rustic, like touching the walls of a mine. Again, I want to protect this stone by surround it with heavy gauge sterling bezel walls.
The heavy bezel walls are very strong and fits around the stone very snugly. This allows friction to keep the stone from falling out.
