Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz Pre-Fall Inspiration (Plus Variations)

This Trollbeads blog brings a little pre-fall inspiration for the Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz. I’m also showcasing live images of some of the incredible variations found in this stone (and why I’m utterly in love with it.)

When I first heard rumours that the Trollbeads Day 2017 bead would be a stone I was so excited. I love the Trollbeads gemstones and for me they’re still one of the unique aspects of the brand. It was confirmed a few weeks later that it would be a golden rutilated quartz and I was thrilled again as it’s such a beautiful stone. When the pricing was unveiled I admit to being a little shocked, like many of you and I decided to reserve judgement until mine arrived. The bead I received was incredibly pretty and exactly the version I thought would be my favourite. It was very pale in colour, incredibly clear and with an good amount of rutile.

Following the launch retailers were posting their own live images and I was a little shocked at the exact extent of the variation. It’s also been fun to see which versions have proven the most popular with collectors. The darkest, ginger coloured beads seem to have consistently been claimed the quickest. I’ve recently been enjoying the opportunity to play with a lot more beads and in multiples, which makes bracelet design so much easier. Today I’m revisiting the Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz on a pre-fall bracelet and also showcasing some of the variations.

Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz Pre-Fall Inspiration

The most common version seems to be the paler examples but they can infact run very dark in colour. This is absolutely a bead you need to purchase from live images to avoid disappointment. What began as curiosity about variation has developed into somewhat of an obsession. Of the latest beads that came here, one was grey based and the other a very soft blush shade (and yes I’ll confess they quickly fell onto my own wrist never to be removed again.)

For this bracelet I wanted to continue experimenting with pre-fall ideas. It’s impossible to think of autumn and not picture the beautiful array of colours from foliage changing. Nearly all of the silver beads used here are barrel shaped, to bring a little consistency to the bracelet. All of the stones are the Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz, ranging from the darkest through to the palest.

Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz Summary

There’s no doubt these stones are expensive, much like the sapphires, emeralds and rubies. I do confess to having a single artisan golden rutilated quartz however and the faceting in particular is not comparable to the Trollbeads version, (though admittedly it’s a single example.) I’m utterly obsessed with this stone right now and my personal collection is at a count of three. I know I’ll ultimately want to add a couple of the darker versions before the stocks do begin to disappear.

As always I love to hear from my readers. What are your thoughts on the Trollbeads Golden Rutilated Quartz and did you ultimately invest in one yourself? Which colour is your favourite? Hit the comments and let me know!

    Victoria, which one of the beads is between soft wind of change and roots? I’m trying to identify it in the other pictures you posted.

    • endangeredtrolls

      It’s the fifth from what I originally posted on Facebook. The fifth is a grey based.. a little like a pale labradorite. The sixth is a very subtle blush πŸ™‚

      xoxo

          Those two are mine πŸ˜€ My excuse is that I’d had a really bad day, it was a full moon and I was left unattended. At least that’s what I’m sticking too πŸ˜›

            I do that all the time. I have an excuse, or so I tell myself. I work with autistic teenagers.
