Rock Your Gems


I love that when I Googled “trend, geode jewelry,” the first hit was the designer Jacquie Aiche. That sealed geode jewelry’s fate with me as a trend. Working across from her booth at the D&A show in New York City with the lovely Floriana Annibali, who was repping it, I tried this ring on at least five times. Now I’m on the hunt to find more representations of what is clearly a trend for the raw and chunky.

Kimberly McDonald’s one-of-a-kind pieces are also breathtaking and she’ll actually split a geode for you upon request as a special gift for mother/daughters and twins.

A great modern spin on the old broken heart pendant.

I did find geode jewelry on sites like Urban Outfitters, and various interpretations of it on Ebay which, as we’re all striving to reduce our carbon footprint, common sense tells me (as should you) that perhaps the second choice would be your greenest.

Many local jewelers in your community who can’t afford a website might have lots of these trendy gems. Your best bet is to make a map of some of them and make it a personal mission with one of your more adventurous friends to find one.

Let me know your results!
