Set In Stone

Exhibiting the raw beauty of natural, semi-precious stones, this pair of rough-hewn gems makes a powerful statement. Using the lost-wax technique, artist Emilie Shapiro creates recycled sterling silver posts dangling with recycled brass bezels whose elongated strands embrace generous hunks of aquamarine harvested from around the world. Handcrafted in New York.

Every stone is one of a kind.
