Stones of Love

It's common to associate pretty pink gems such as Rose Quartz and lush Rubies with love. Rose quartz after all is considered the "love stone" and rubies are supposed to intensify one's passions. We have lots of gorgeous designs with ruby and/or rose quartz that are perfect for giving to loved one's(including gifts to yourself) and will feature more such styles in the store closer to Valentine's Day.

But today I wanted to focus on one stone that I am in love with: Rutilated Quartz.

Wendy has been designing with this stone for years and for good reason: each stone is unique in that it has its own design of crystal inclusions within it. Rutilated quartz comes in a variety of colors: gold, copper, bronze, black and they vary from ones with spaced out inclusions to ones that have the crystals clustered together.

Copper Rutilated Quartz Heart Cut Drop- $90
Bronze Rutilated Quartz Pear Cut Drop- $105

Gold Rutilated Quartz Heart Cut Drop- $90

Because of its unique appearance rutilated quartz has been referred to as Venus Hair stone, Cupid's Darts and the most romantic of them all: Fleches d'amour( Cupid's Darts in French). In the past, rutilated quartz has believed to help facilitate healing, anti-aging and overcoming difficult situations and depression.

Golden Rutilated Quartz Drop Earrings, $110

I love the way these stones change depending on the light and angles they are in. These stones are perfect for every day wear especially for those who like simple designs with unique touches.

Black Rutilated Quartz Drops, $72

Black Rutilated Simple Drops, $68

Bronze Rutilated Quartz, Carved Ruby Leaf Drop, Peach Rainbow Moonstone & Garnet Drop Necklace- $140

So make your next WMJ purchase one with Fleches d'amour( don't you just love the name?) and as always please call (221-260-5298) or e-mail the boutique(store@wendyminkjewelry.com) for queries and customs.

Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Oh these are so lovely! I personally love bold inclusions in stones. They are very jarring in their own way.
