Style Spotlight: Rough and Raw Stone Jewelry

Rough or raw cut stones have been having a moment for quite some time now, but it’s time to drive home why they are so beautiful.  Here are 4 jewelry designers that always perfectly highlight the beauty of an imperfectly cut gemstone and a feature of a one of a kind No Kitchen Sink piece currently available in the shop.


1: Variance Objects

Variance Objects jewelry most often features stones that are roughly faceted, but are swoon-worthy all the same.  Their bands are made using a mixture of metals and each ring is 100% one of a kind and unique.

I am personally friends with Jessica of Hawkhouse and she is extremely talented, and SO sweet. She puts her heart and soul into her work and it shows through her chosen medium – electroforming.  She has perfected her craft and one look is going to make you want one of EVERYTHING.
