DRUZY , seen in this from Lilly Barrack, is source of serious sparkle power. Druzy is created when tiny quartz crystals form a rough surface on the surface of a gemstone. It may also be discovered inside, when the stone is cut for jewelry. The stones have a ’sugar-crusted” look – like starlight sparkling. We have exquisite druzy creations from your favorite designers - many just in! Come take a look!
Carol Lipworth makes statement necklaces that highlight the impact a druzy stone adds. Dyed teal blue agate geodes with druzy equals a necklace with pop! The pendant necklace is chalcedony and smoky quartz on sterling silver. The pendant is polished smooth on one side, with shimmery druzy on the other – wear either way!
Put Druzy at your fingertips! A ring!
Front and center is the stunning pearl and druzy ring set in sterling silver from jewelry artisan Lilly Barrack. Miller Canning has created a beautiful ring in ruby red druzy, set in sterling. From Miller, we have a similar ring in charcoal druzy.
Irresistable druzy earrings!
Margaret Elizabeth uses druzy in three-drop earrings. The aqua chalcedony has druzy sparkle, in the others the druzy is pink, both set with complimentary stones. They’ll catch an eye with the sparkle druzy brings!
