A Rutilated Quartz in a vintage Rolex diamond bezel pendant. Custom designed and built by Clay Copeland in 14K yellow gold.
This 10.70 ct. polished rutilated quartz stone looks like it’s encasing gold within. Cut in a beautiful half sphere, showing off vibrant strands of sparkling rutilation that look like golden silk. Amazing in natural sunlight!
When we found this piece of rutilated quartz in New Mexico we knew we had to have it. First, Clay started his design process in our shop here in Austin. Then, lo and behold, he found the quartz fit perfectly into this diamond watch bezel from a vintage ladies Rolex. Our customers love it when we’re able to repurpose a beautiful piece of jewelry like this diamond Rolex bezel.
Mainly made up of titanium dioxide, rutile inclusions are usually golden. But, rutile also appears silver, copper to copper-red and deep black.
Properties of the Rutilated Quartz

In addition, consider programming your rutilated quartz as they have the ability to amplify your intentions or affirmations.
