Druse, drusy or druzy? Whichever way you say it, this sparkling gemstone is always beautiful.
Unlike traditional faceted gems such as emeralds, sapphires, or rubies, drusy is a gemstone with a natural surface texture akin to spilled sugar. In fact, the gems are the result of dissolved silica deposited in porous quartz.
Drusy’s shape comes from the variety of quartz upon which the crystals have formed. And, because so many varieties of quartz exist, there is a huge variation in the many shape and cuts available.
In addition to its spectacular texture, drusy is also highly prized for its shimmer and sparkle. The myriad facets reflect light for a fiery display.
And, drusy appears naturally in a vast array of shades from bright white, to every shade of pink, yellow, blue, violet, and more.
Where to find drusy jewelry
A few years ago, jewelry designers like Kendra Scott suddenly “discovered” drusy. And, today, there are amazing necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings of all shapes and sizes.
But, one of my favorite places for beautiful (and affordable!) drusy pieces is The Druzy Shop. This online shop ships worldwide, so shopping for the holidays is easy.
And, the choices are so beautiful! I’ve highlighted a few of my personal picks here. For example, the bangle bracelets, above, are gold plated and showcase a combination of two natural drusy stones in complimentary colors. There are six color combinations available and each bracelet is currently on sale for $42.40.
I also love the simple drusy necklace, above. The necklace features a stunning stone with a 22 inch gold plated chain and setting. And, it’s on sale for just $34.50.
Finally, the earrings, below, would make a great stocking stuffer for any gal on your list. The simple studs are available in six lovely colors. And, at only $10.65, don’t forget to pick up a pair for yourself!
I think this holiday is going to be a “drusy!”
