Welcome to the “Staghead Mine”! The mine is home to our hand-selected collection of ethically sourced, extremely unique and rare gemstones. These stones were curated because they cannot be found anywhere else and possess outstanding qualities that deserve to be highlighted by truly custom rings!
Start With Your Stone!
Purchasing a stone from the mine will reserve it for you, allowing you to design the ring of your dreams around a unique stone and create a truly meaningful symbol of your love!
Shortly after purchasing, you will be emailed by one of our custom ring designers to get started on the design of your custom engagement ring. Once you have finalized your design, please note that custom commissioned rings always have the possibility of taking longer than our standard 8-week lead time.Designing and bringing a new design to life takes extra time and care to ensure the durability and quality of your custom piece.
“AURUM” - 8mm x 10mm Hexagon Cut Rutilated Quartz
This clear quartz features “rutile”, which are strands of titanium dioxide mineral. Historically, rutilated quartz was thought to give a psychic power. The specific type of psychic power that rutile enhances is known as clairsentience, meaning “clear thinking.” Even if you don’t subscribe to the psychic phenomena, you can agree this is a beautiful specimen! All stones are ethically sourced and conflict free.
Rutilated quartz is a type of quartz which contains inclusions of rutile, which appear needle-like and are seen throughout the stone. The rutile can vary in size, shape, and color. While these inclusions are typically golden brown in color, they can also present as silver, copper red, or deep black. Each stone is different and will vary in appearance, which makes the stone in each ring extremely unique!
This stone is photographed in professional studio lighting that mimics natural sunlight of 5500 degrees kelvin and videoed outdoors the same.
For care and cleaning, we strongly recommend using soapy water and a soft brush as the safest way to clean your jewelry, avoiding ultrasonic and steam cleaners. We also suggest avoiding extreme heat as it has the potential to harm the color variation of your stone. To be safe, remove your jewelry while enjoying a soak in the hot tub or steam in the sauna! You will also want to avoid strong household chemicals and cleaners such as bleach.
**We do not reserve stones for any customer expressing interest in a particular stone. You must complete the purchase of the stone to save and reserve it for yourself! For liability reasons, we will require a signature confirmation upon delivery of your custom ring regardless of the shipping option you select at checkout.**
**Please note that when purchasing a stone, we do not send just the stone itself. In purchasing a Mine Stone, you are reserving that stone in order to work with one of our custom designers to build the perfect ring for your stone! We are artists, not stone dealers, and our passion is working alongside our clients in designing unique and beautiful rings. We love nothing more than seeing custom rings completed and a client dreams realized!**
Because many of our rings have natural materials in them (such as wood, antler, etc.) they do require more care than a traditional solid gold wedding band. We recommend you remove your ring for:
- Any water exposure (including handwashing) - Using household chemicals, hand sanitizer, or any other harsh chemicals - Any manual labor - Anything that might incur impact damage such as hitting your ring on hard surfaces or dropping it
- Remove your ring for any manual labor (especially anything that includes gripping items tightly such as furniture, free weights, etc.) - Remove your ring when using cosmetics, household chemicals, hand sanitizer, or any other harsh chemicals

We offer a free ring sizing kit at the time of purchasing a ring, which ensures you receive one free resize as long as we are contacted within 15 days of you receiving the ring! If you did not use our free ring sizer, or are reaching out after the 15 days, please contact us and we’d love to help you get your sizing figured out!
If ordering in TUNGSTEN or CERAMIC please note those are comfort fit bands and you must be sized appropriately. The rest of our rings are standard fit.

I was so excited to receive my fiancés custom wedding band two weeks ago! It is everything that I dreamed of and is so special! Amazing quality, and outstanding customer service! Thank you so much! I can’t wait for my fiancé to see it on our wedding day!
We got married before we could decide on any rings, and a few months after we did, I lost my promise ring I had for 8 years. This meant I could finally order my dream ring! After a few hiccups in the order, Staghead Designs followed through with an even better outcome. Great customer services and my ring could not be any more perfect!!
