The stone known for its golden to reddish-brown to grey-colored needles locked inside colorless quartz is poised for popularity thanks to a convergence of ideas from couturiers and jewelry designers. While yellow gold accessories were prevalent on spring runways, ornate, golden embroidery was widespread on catwalks for fall. And in jewelry, sunny-colored stones like yellow diamonds, beryl, and rutilated quartz have been in wide use at many 2012 shows. At the crossroads of both fashion and jewelry, rutilated quartz is a warm, abundant gem with a graphic effect that complements highly embellished couture. Here are a dozen new jewelry designs available for resale.
