Editor’s Notes: A superb pair of rutile quartz earrings that compliment any outfit, these beautiful gems appear as though they have gold thread running through them. These tiny golden hairs are spectacularly illuminated under the light and have a dazzling effect.
Product Information: Rutilated Quartz is associated with its powerful cleansing and purifying effects and gets its golden coloured strands from rutile, a mineral made of titanium oxide. Known in Roman times as “Venus Hair” and then as “sagenita”, was regarded as the sunlight captured by the stone. One of a kind, hand-made by Claire van Holthe. Beautifully presented in hand-crafted black gift boxes with signature Ancienne Ambiance purple ribbons.

It is the stones cut and colour that interests Claire the most, she lets the stones speak for themselves and designs around their natural beauty.
