This commissioned piece of jewelry art is created in 14k rose gold with pink sapphires and diamond accents.
When asked where he drew his inspiration, Archie responded, “The inherient beauty of the rutilated quartz itself dictated a minimalist design concept that would put the gem on full display as the visual focal point.”
Alluding further Archie went on to say, “Once the framework was hand fabricated, the accent gems were added to enhance the overall flow of the gem and add delights for the eye.”
Truly, the center piece of this creation is the a stunning Rutilated quartz gem.
As you know, Rutilated quartz is a transparent quartz with inclusions that are in needle-like growths. The Rutile inclusions range from thin, sparse, and parallel, to thick, dense, and crisscrossed and everything in-between.
Each Rutilated quartz gemstone is unique in its pattern of Rutile inclusions.
Uniqueness of the center gem aside, it was the artistic skills of someone as talented as Archie Alford that brought this treasured design to life.
