Came across this stone on Etsy while looking for something special for Julies 15th wedding anniversary ring. The traditional stone is rock crystal which is basically quartz or ruby so I though some reddish quartz would cover both. The stone has little multicoloured flecks throughout which makes it looks like a cloud of confetti fluttering down.
For the ring, I went for my favourite square cross-section then rounded off the 4 sides to give it a bulged square shape on the outside and a round shape in the centre. This makes for a very comfortable ring to wear with a nice looking shape. The setting was another slightly raised mounting.
