#0375 Smoky Quartz & Rutilated Quartz Gemstone Necklace
And so the story...
Would you just look at this beauty? The gemstones bring to mind gazing balls from days gone by. Huge smoky quartz faceted gemstones and the most interesting rutilated quartz faceted coin-shape gemstone beads tumble together to make up this stunner. Add the glitter of the finest of Czech Jablonex glass fire-polished special-finish faceted beads -- it's a beautiful thing. The five, (yes...five) strands close with a gold vermeil clasp, the necklace measures 18" and can be twisted slightly to make it a bit shorter and give variety in the look. It's funny how things go -- suddenly there is a lot of talk about rutilated quartz in the fashion industry -- I've been using it since the early 70s!
It's another Shirley Schmidt-Boston Legal stunner...don't you think? I can also add the Paige character from Royal Pains and the First Lady to the list of women on which I think this necklace would work.
