I have been looking for a rose quartz cabochon that would fit the vintage setting and finally found the best size to fit. Interesting that in designing this necklace, I discovered information about Rose Quartz. In a description: "The fair and lovely Rose Quartz, with its gentle pink essence, is a stone of the heart, a Crystal of Unconditional Love...." The pink seems to be especially attractive in the vintage setting. Adding silver elements to the equation was my way of emphasizing the silver in the setting. I do not know the composition, however, I believe it might be pewter over brass or other metal. I love the end result and hope you will too. Rose Quartz, a silicon dioxide crystal, is a multi-seasonal stone. It can be worn to adorn just about any clothing choice, but personally I think it would be best worn as an attractive enhancement to outfits a bit fancier than business casual ~ maybe more appropriately worn as part of a dinner out on the town adornment.
