Rutilated Quartz is Clear Quartz naturally perforated with needle-like pieces of Golden Rutile, often called “The Hairs of Venus.” It is believed to clear energy blockages of all the chakras and stimulates the alignment of the mind and body. Rutilated Quartz is said to make the wearer attune to the divine world and their guardian angels. It is a very uplifting stone that infuses joy into your life and surrounding environment. It is believed to speed up the healing of injuries and slow the effects of aging.
Vermeil is one of the biggest trends in the jewelry world right now as it offers the perfect balance between quality and value. 24kt gold vermeil is a type of gold finished material that is composed of a thick layer of 24kt pure gold over solid sterling silver. The thickness of the gold is what sets vermeil apart from standard gold plating. For a piece to qualify as vermeil, it must have at least 2.5 microns of gold over sterling silver compared to simple gold plating which is a thin film of gold over a base metal. The heftiness of the gold layer means that it is much less likely to wear off or tarnish as gold plated jewelry would. Vermeil usually looks like gold to the naked eye, which makes it a great alternative for those who don't want to pay the high price for pure gold jewelry. To keep your vermeil bright, avoid contact with water and rough use.
