Augustine Jewels Unveil Their A/W15 Collection

Augustine Jewels Unveil Their A/W15 Collection  

Autumn has arrived and so naturally that means it is time to swap your summer wardrobe palette for more autumnal tones instead. Our Autumn collection is inspired by the Fall of leaves in New England. Our subtle Rose Quartz and Smoky Quartz jewellery reflects the soft pink and brown tones that are in fashion this season. Rose Quartz is also a lovely alternative to the deeper and darker tones usually associated with autumn/winter.

The Rose Quartz stone is fairly common and found in many places throughout the world and it is usually found in the cores of granite pegmatite’s. The main source of Rose Quartz is Brazil, however it can also be found in Madagascar, South Africa, Mozambique, India, and the United States.

Our Smoky Quartz ring was inspired by autumn leaves, it is set in sterling silver and oozes elegance and class. Smoky quartz is very common and found throughout the world in countries such as Brazil, Madagascar, Mozambique, Australia, Switzerland, Scotland, and the United States. Although it should be noted that it has only recently become a popular gemstone for jewellers, it is most commonly used as ring and pendant centrepieces.

Why Are Some Quartz Pink And Some Brown? 

Whilst Smoky Quartz and Rose Quartz have nearly identical properties, due to them both being colour varieties of the mineral quartz, their shades differ quite drastically.

The soft pink colour of Rose Quartz ranges from very pale pink to deep reddish-pink due to trace amounts of titanium, iron, or manganese in the material. Rose Quartz may lack good transparency and so it often appears as milky or hazy.

Typically most Smoky Quartz is naturally coloured, varying from light yellowish brown to dark brown. The colour of Smoky Quartz is a result of exposing clear Quartz to irradiation through gamma rays.
