rough cut jewelry in seattle

ROUGH CUTS AND HORSEBITS  2The fashion world has a variety of varying aspects including jewelry. From the high-end sporting rare diamonds, rubies, etc. down to the cheap imitations made of plastic, women and men alike love to adorn themselves in an eye-catching trend setting piece. The most common and popular is the costume jewelry but designers in recent years have been creating more high-end versions of these with quality materials such as gold, platinum and silver. Matching them with pieces of leather, turquoise stones, rough cut emeralds, rubies and amethyst, just to name a few.

While I was out shopping this past weekend, I noticed as many cuffs as last year but this time much larger and more often than not with intricate designs made from a variety of gems and stones. Turquoise, quartz in all colors of the rainbow and rough-cut stones dangling from gold and silver chains. All gorgeous pieces that I wish I could have brought home to go with every outfit I could create with the staple items in my closet. I settled on a pair of orange topaz earrings in an 18k gold setting; a pair that are proving to be quite the addition to my ever-expanding collection and will carry me through this summer and into the end of fall.


Gold is still the most prevalent of the elements ruling the fashion scene. Beginning with a simple solid design in yellow, rose or white gold or adding an uncut, unpolished stone. Alongside this trend were a multitude of rings with a single polished onyx, tiger’s eye, agate, turquoise, and opal.ROUGH CUTS AND HORSEBITS  3

Some of the rulers of the fashion industry, as always, are creating some very beautiful unique pieces especially Gucci with the release of their “Horsebit” collection. Stunning and simple 18k gold earrings, rings and necklaces with said shape strung together or hanging as a single pendent. Simplistic beauty, enough to be worn with almost any outfit for years to come.

In short, I’m thoroughly excited for the upcoming fall season. Not only for the natural beauty of the leaves changing here in the Pacific Northwest but also for the ability to accessorize outfits with my new earrings (along with other pieces I’ve yet to collect!).ROUGH CUTS AND HORSEBITS 1
