Wendy Stauffer Jewelry
Dumortierite in Quartz Ring. Size 7 1/2.
This dreamy quartz has sky blue dumortierite inclusions that appear like a cloud of blue needles in the stone. I've set it at an angle on a base of 22k gold and silver bimetal* in a bezel of 22k. The swirled band of sterling silver square wire measures a size 7 1/2.
*Bimetal features a layer of high-karat 22-karat yellow gold pressure-bonded to a layer of bright Argentium® Silver. The gold constitutes a full 10% of the overall weight and the Argentium constitutes the remaining 90%. The front of the piece shows the gold layer and the back is silver. This is a cost-efficient way to achieve the warm look of gold jewelry.
