HSN Jewelry Designer Nicky Butler, What’s With The Mystic Quartz?

Butler's Today's Special

Jewelry designer Nicky Butler is one of our favorites on HSN, and he’s got the Today’s Special Tuesday. It’s a floral multi-gemstone ring, in either green or aqua quartz, that’s $70.

Butler has the kind of jewelry we love: silver and gemstones handcrafted in India into jewelry. When Butler owned a shop in London, Princess Diana was one of his customers.

But he has recently added Mystic Quartz to his repertoire, using it in a ring. Although most gemstones are enhanced Mystic Quartz has always struck as as fake and phony, with its rainbow effect. We think sometimes the treatment to get this effect is a coating outside the stone, and in some cases it’s a treatment that goes through the stone.

Maybe we’re being picky here, since most stones are enhanced, but to have a Mystic Quartz in a ring at $130 seems to us a betrayal of Butler’s self-professed love of natural, real gemstones.

One poster about the Mystic Quartz ring also complained about its high prices for what you were getting.

    Nicky Butler was and still is a partner in Butler and Wilson in the U.K. and that is the jewelry Diana bought. Their jewelry, though, is very different from the stuff he brings to HSN. It’s glitzy costume jewelry, though with a hipper edge than KJL or Joan Rivers. I bought a cool broach there a few years ago. It’s very, very chic and high end stuff.

    I believe that the Wilson half of the duo appears on QVC in the UK.
