One-of-a-kind blue druzy necklace with tanzanite, aquamarine, and blue topaz handmade in .925 sterling silver.
One of my very favorite natural gemstones to design sterling silver jewelry with is drusy (also spelled druzy). The drusy gemstone looks like a carpet of sparkling fresh snow covering the crevice of a mineral stone. This gorgeous unique gemstone is formed over millions of years by ground water carrying silica to the mineral under extreme heat.

There are many forms of drusy: chrysocolla drusy, pink calicite drusy, uvarovite drusy, chalcedony drusy, also known as desert rose drusy, but the most common is quartz drusy appearing in agates. Drusy is found worldwide.

Natural drusies are beautiful and make gorgeous one-of-a-kind jewelry center pieces for designer silver necklaces, one-of-a-kind silver pendants, and gemstone bracelets. To create a stunning rainbow of colors in the drusy stone, the natural crystals can be treated with a with a film of titanium. It is then called titanium druzy. This coating process was invented in the US and bonds the titanium with the mineral to create a spectacular variety of colors in the drusy gemstone.

When I begin a jewelry design with a drusy gemstone, I accent the featured druzy with faceted blue aquamarines, denim hued blue kyanite, violet tanzanite, even American turquoise or maybe some facet amethyst or peridot gemstones. I love to create interest in my silver jewelry by mixing sizes, textures, and complementary colors. After the design is complete, every stone will be bezel set by hand in polished 925 sterling silver.
