#0507 Crystal Quartz Rough & Polished Gemstone Bracelet
And so the story...
The rockhound in me loves the raw crystal quartz oversized gemstone nuggets in this bracelet. There is something about them that is magical – frosted white in nature – they are lovely. While they look a bit pinkish in the images, they are frosty white. Don’t worry; they are smooth to the touch. (Someday I’ll actually figure out the perfect lighting for great pix! Just not today!) I love the contrast of the polished smooth faceted crystal quartz nuggets in the bracelet, too. These stones make me think of melting ice – you know when it’s clear and shiny and melty on the outside. The world’s finest Czech Jablonex glass fire-polished faceted rounds bring it all together. I have been loving this colossal silver-plate aluminum double link chain so it is showing up in several designs of late. Mixed with the genuine crystal quartz stones & Czech glass it makes one big look.
Of course you can wear it alone – it’s substantial enough to do just that. But I have styled it with a few sterling silver pieces from my private collection so you can see how it looks stacked with others. It’s a wrist fête of sorts. Measures 8” in length and closes with an easy-to-use over-sized C-ring clasp (also known as a Signora clasp). The one-inch extender gives length options. And, here it comes…because of the dimension of the nuggets this design wears shorter than a single strand thin 8” bracelet would. Don’t ask me to explain…it just fits differently. And, truth be told, I don’t know how to explain the fact to you so you’ll just have to trust me!! But with the extender, I think this design will work for most wrists.
