About Smoky Quartz Earrings

Buying Guide

When you are shopping for smoky quartz earrings, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the smoky quartz. This lovely beautiful cognac-color, relative of amethyst, also sometimes incorrectly referred to as smoky topaz, has a rich chocolate color that adds earth-tone sophistication to any jewelry design.

Color is the most important value factor: the more pure and rich the brown color, the more valuable the smoky quartz. Cut is more important than clarity, since a well-cut smoky quartz will dance with light.

Because all Gemvara earrings are made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality smoky quartz to perfectly suit your design.

What is the meaning of smoky quartz in the language of gems? In alpine countries, rosaries and crucifixes are often made from smoky quartz because it was said to protect from danger and also to help soothe grief. Smoky quartz is also said to bring its owner inner peace.

Although most smoky quartz is now mined in Brazil, it is also the state gemstone of New Hampshire and the official gem of Scotland, an early source.

Because the rich chocolate of your smoky quartz jewelry will catch the eye, you will want to match the color of smoky quartz earrings to a smoky quartz necklace or smoky quartz ring.

The brown color of smoky quartz develops when rock crystal is exposed to radiation, either in the rock where it forms or after being mined. Most smoky quartz on the market is enhanced with radiation. At Gemvara, we assume the smoky quartz we carry is irradiated and so should you.

With a color that complements every metal, smoky quartz earrings are crafted in sterling silver, white gold, yellow gold, and especially rose gold.

Smoky quartz is a very durable gem perfect for everyday wear. Clean smoky quartz earrings with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect.

Gemvara's fine quality smoky quartz earrings are designed to be passed down for generations to come, crafted by hand in the United States.

Jewelry Care

With a little care, your fine jewelry will keep its good looks forever. The best way to clean your jewelry is by soaking it in a bowl of warm water with a few drops of ordinary dish detergent. If needed, use a soft brush where dust and soap can collect. Then just rinse and pat dry with a soft cloth.

You won't have to clean your jewelry as often if you put it on after applying hairspray, perfume, and cosmetics. Be sure to remove your jewelry before strenuous activities like sports. Keep jewelry away from chlorine and other household chemicals. Always make sure it is dry and clean by wiping with a cloth before putting it away.

To protect the beauty of your jewelry, don't keep it in a tangle in a jewelry box. Remember, gems can scratch metal or each other. When you travel, make sure your jewelry pieces don't rub against each other in your bag. Store each piece separately or wrap each one in tissue paper or a soft cloth.
