Diamond vs. Quartz

"Big girls need big diamonds."
- Elizabeth Taylor

A quartz crystal is a gem everyone girl should have.
Forget diamonds, I want quartz crystals!
They vary in clarity and size, but they do have one thing in common, the are totally hypnotising to look at!
So I couldn't help myself when I found this beautiful necklace at a little stall at the markets.

After I got it home, I found myself doing a little research into the stone...

A quartz crystal is meant to be a stone to correspond with every zodiac (I'm an aries, what are you?).
It is meant to be a pure and powerful energy source, that receives, activates, stores, transmits and amplifies your energy.

  1. There is something so pure and simple about Quartz, I would love a simple necklace like this one but I don't know where to get one from.

  11. I don't think I'd turn down a diamond but I have gone out of my way to get quartz jewelry. Rose Quartz is my favorite! That's a beautiful necklace! Can't wait to see you incorporate it into your outfits. Happy weekend Ellen!

  14. They are both beautiful. Of course most girls prefer diamonds, because they are worth more. But quarts also make gorgeous jewelry.
