Originally an antique Victorian stickpin circa 1890 featuring an oval piece of polished gold quartz displaying an intricate and lush veining of pure gold set in a sleek rose gold bezel. We mounted it to a slim stackable band of our own design, cast in 14k recycled yellow gold, and accented the central stone with antique single-cut diamonds on each shoulder; of graduated size their subtle sparkle is a lovely complement to the rustic nature of the gold quartz, approximately .12 cts. total weight. I love the mix of rose and yellow gold that plays up the variations within the quartz. Sometimes gold quartz will exhibit other minerals in the matrix like pyrite, silver or copper; this particular specimen has interesting bits of such material visible deep within it. Measuring approximately 1/2" north to south and 3/8" east to west across the face; the band has a 2.65 mm shoulder width very slightly tapering to 2.10 mm by the center back of the band. Currently size 7 and resizable at least two full sizes without issue. Please convo me before purchase if you are interested in the details of our sizing service. Originally discovered during the mid-19th century gold rush in California, gold quartz became very popular for souvenir and statement jewelry throughout the Victorian era, with a resurgence during the Alaskan gold rush of the late 1800s. In excellent condition with the stone and its bezel having a gentle antique patina speaking to its age and history. The quartz has natural inclusions breaking the surface of the face and minimal wear. Marked for 14 inside the band. ⌘ The Eden Collective Ring Shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheEdenCollective?section_id=13939721&ref=shopsection_leftnav_1 ⌘ We are happy to offer layaway.
