It's said that by cleansing and recharging all chakras, the Rutilated Quartz crystal is associated with powerful cleansing and purifying effects. It consists of clear Quartz, a big time energy conductor and magnifier, making it a popular healing tool. On a scientific level, the Rutilated Quartz crystal gets its golden colored strands from rutile, a mineral made of titanium oxide. These tiny golden hairs are spectacularly illuminated under the light, a dazzling effect that puts this rock star of gems center stage.

Authentic upcycled diamond mosaics are hand-set through centuries-old Indian techniques, which has withstood the test of time. Further tested to be nickel-free, cadmium-free, lead-free, all our pieces are created with sterling silver throughout, and are hypoallergenic. 18K gold is used to coat pieces in the vermeil technique, to give some of our pieces a deep golden hue.

WHAT IS VERMEIL?

Vermeil is a type of gold-finish that is composed of a thick layer of gold over solid sterling silver. Our gold vermeil is 18 karats.

The thickness of the gold portion is what really sets vermeil jewelry apart from gold plated pieces. The thickness of the gold portion must be a hefty 2.5 microns.

Vermeil pieces must have a sterling silver base (instead of brass or cheaper metals) and are a great way to start upgrading from costume pieces (made of cheaper metal alloys and brass) to real and fine jewelry.

Our vermeil jewelry is nickel-free and hypoallergenic, and only sold in limited quantities, making each purchase an investment in your individual style.
