These gorgeous necklaces feature stunning raw gemstone specimens, suspended from sturdy 21" oxidized sterling silver chains. The designer, Joseph Brooks, carefully chooses each stone, selecting beautifully unique pieces. The rough, dark finish on the chain provides a satisfying aesthetic counterpart to the brilliantly colored, multifaceted, irregular stones. One could very well describe Brooks's jewelry as a fascinating collaboration between a metalsmith and nature. Brooks accompanies each necklace with a card, detailing the origin of each stone and the specific holistic and healing properties the stone imparts to the wearer. Our current selection features black tourmaline (purification, protection), beryl (courage, creativity), quartz with chlorite inclusions (harmonizing, healing), and quartz with amphibole inclusions (lucid dreaming, restful sleep).
Hollywood based designer Joseph Brooks has an abiding passion for minerals and gemstones, a love that has taken him across the world in search of beautiful specimens. Before Brooks began designing jewelry, he was immersed in a different kind of rock world, as a music promoter, radio DJ and owner of the seminal music shop Vinyl Fetish. He brings a distinct punk rock sensibility to his design practice, a rawness that perfectly complements the raw gemstones he showcases.
As each necklace features a one of a kind raw gemstone, yours may vary slightly from the one pictured (the stone will be approximately the same color and size but a slightly different shape).
