Make a Chic Statement for Fall with Natural Stone Jewelry
GO AU NATURAL THIS FALL
Just as our society is going back to basics, so is the jewelry we wear as a fashion statement. No longer just for the hippie at heart, natural stone jewelry is adorning the necks, fingers and ears of all of the chic celebs like Joss Stone, as well as the designer runways. Agate, quartz, crystal and other raw-cut rocks and gems can be worn to update any outfit with natural style.
NATURAL STONE NECKLACES
Natural stone necklaces can add some interest to almost any outfit with an effortless yet chic appeal. These pieces make a bold and beautiful statement and add an architectural update to any outfit. Pair any of these necklaces with a dress during the day or evening and you’ll get a look that’s uniquely chic:
