I love druzies! This is probably the main reason as to why I decided to include them in my latest designs, I just LOVE the way they sparkle and glitter and how every single one is unique!
What is a druzy?
A druzy is basically made up of lots of small mineral crystals forming on top of another stone. There are many different types of druzies, the most common ones are made up of quartz, because it is one of the most common minerals. The tiny crystals are so beautiful as they sparkle and shine, which probably explains why they have been popular and trendy for over two years already. Affordable pieces of jewelry with druzies are even popping up in budget stores!
Druzies, unlike diamonds, can be obtained fairly inexpensively – of course depending on quality. Like with everything, you do get what you pay for!
The fact that they are generally fairly inexpensive, sparkly and glamorous, without being too much ‘in your face’, makes them the perfect wedding jewelry, for example for the bride, or as bridesmaid wear or bridesmaid gifts. A simple little necklace like the one I made above, is sure to complement (and not overpower) a bridesmaid dress. Here is some more wedding-inspired druzy jewelry and a whole article written on the subject. I love those ear-rings!!
I do not see the druzy-craze going anywhere…
What do you think?
Personally, I love the chunky Boho-style gold-encased druzies, and also the very petite ones. I often pair a hand-knotted gemstone necklaces with a little petite druzy on a simple gold chain, especially when I want to dress up a simple outfit.
Here is an example of the two styles together:
Do you like druzies, would you buy them, and which ones are your favorites?
