Perfpersnickety:  That is beautiful!! I have seen some really pretty rings with this type of quartz on Etsy. I don’t know if they were marketed by the sellers as “engagement rings”, but I don’t think that matters so much. I’ve always felt that any ring an engaged person chooses to wear on their ring finger is an “engagement ring”. I think it is a beautiful stone and would make a beautiful engagement ring.

I don’t know how hard quartz is, so my only caution would be that you might want to check into that. The hardness of the stone could be a concern for a ring that you will want to wear every day.

I think those look awesome! I would be cautious wearing quartz every day, it’s a 7 on the hardness scale. Rutile is a mineral that’s even softer than quartz with a 6-6.5 on the hardness scale.  

I would totally wear one as a RHR on special occasions though!! I just wouldn’t trust myself with it for everyday wear.

ETA: I think it would look great in a rustic style setting, like a twig and branch ring maybe or unpolished matte gold. Check out Kate Szabone (sp?) on Etsy and catbird!

I think it’s an amazing stone, certainly unique that’s for sure!

Perfpersnickety:  I wanted to post back to apologize if my initial reply came across as “snippy” or something like that. My intention was to support whatever ring choice you wanted, even if it was not something considered “traditional”. But I now realize my post might not have sounded like that. I am so sorry if my reply caused you any discomfort.

(Also, I think the pink rutilated quartz in rose gold would be AMAZING!! *.*)
