WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR THE DRUZY COLLECTION QUARTZ DROP EARRINGS? Our Druzy Collection Drop earrings were released in late Fall 2017. When we first released our Druzy Collection, our Drop earrings were designed first and complemented our first edition quartz bangle. We redesigned our Bangle Collection - Quartz Bangle to have a sleeker setting (read more on our Quartz Bangle). When we redesigned our bangle, we wanted to have an earring that complemented our new bangle design, however, our original Druzy Collection Drop earrings were so popular, we designed a completely different earring to complement our new bangle and we now offer both!
We offer our Quartz Drop Earrings in both Silver and Gold tones with 7 different stone color choices, Azure, Blush, Denim, Jade, Raven, Royal, and our original Quartz. Each earring is made with a carefully chosen druzy quartz stone with a rigid texture. Each stone is surrounded by a 18K yellow gold or silver, ion-plated stainless steel teardrop.
WHY DID WE NAME THE COLLECTION DRUZY? Kinsley Armelle was originally known for our druzy designs. What exactly is Druzy? In geology, druse, also known as drusy or druzy, refers to a coating of fine crystals on a rock fracture surface or within a geode. Druse occurs worldwide, but the most common seems to be quartz druse within voids in chert or agates. Kinsley Armelle also has an Agate Collection, which uses stones containing druse.
We named our collection Druzy because of the quartz stones we use in all of our Druzy Collection pieces. In terms of jewelry, Druzy is the glittering effect of tiny crystals over top a colorful mineral. Druzy jewelry has become well-favored because you are able to get a large, natural stone at a very reasonable price point.
HOW DOES KA RECOMMEND STYLING THE DRUZY COLLECTION - QUARTZ DROP EARRINGS? We love pairing our Druzy Collection - Quartz Drop Earrings with ‘stacks’ including pieces that reflect their natural glimmer. Some of our favorite pairings include designs from our Bangle Collection, Glitz Collection and/or Stone Collection designs.
