This gorgeous antique smokey quartz seemed to call out for a setting that would showcase both it’s earthy color as well as the wonderful cut which makes this stone glimmer from every angle. I am happy to oblige. The warm brown with golden and greenish hints invite the imagination to wander down a mysterious forested trail, but you might want to dig out your favorite cocktail dress for this walk… a fireside cognac may be waiting. The amazingly faceted stone is bezel set in a hand fabricated setting with an open back to allow the light to travel, then raised atop chunky prongs that finish at the ring shank with an outstretched spidery gesture. Joined to a 6mm wide hand fabricated and hammered band, the ring is a generous size 9, approaching 9 1/4. The stone is just about 17mm high by 13mm wide. This dramatic piece awaits to add some flash to your next adventure, or to be your statement piece whenever a little drama is called for.
