Rutilated Quartz and Gold Bracelet

in: Bracelet



Rutilated Quartz and Gold Bracelet- Beautiful clear crystal quartz, with golden "needles" throughout - I love this gemstone! I felt compelled to combine these beautiful gems with Gold Filled (GF) beads and findings (please see below to read the difference between Gold Filled and Gold Plated). This beautiful golden bracelet looks amazing solo on the wrist, or stacked with other bracelets/bangles, including those crafted in Sterling Silver.  Be sure to zoom in on the photos to see the details of these gemstones!

The adjustable bracelet measures 8" in length, including the extender chain " in length, and fastens securely with a GF lobster style clasp.

All metals used in this bracelet are Gold Filled.

Gold Filled vs. Gold Plated:  Not the same!  The amount of gold used in gold plated (GP) jewelry is less than .05%.  The gold is electro-plated to the base metal alloy (usually jeweler's brass). One tiny scratch on plated metal can expose the base metal.  The amount of gold used in Gold Filled (GF) jewelry is 100% more than Gold Plated - 5%.  The base metal alloy is literally sandwiched between two layers of gold. As long as one takes care of their GF jewelry, it can last a lifetime. To clean, without scratching it, use an untreated cloth or mild soapy water. Do not scrub the piece.

Jewelry is made using traditional metalworking techniques, including soldering, filing, sanding, texturing, polishing, and tumbling in my home studio. Jewelry comes wrapped in a cotton-lined gift box and ships quickly. Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
