Natural Beauties

Stalactites begin with a single droplet of mineral-rich water that forms on cave ceilings and then falls to the ground, leaving behind a thin ring of calcite. Each subsequent drop deposits another ring. As millions of years pass, these rings gradually build to create glittering, crystalline columns of natural minerals.

Handcrafted by Emilie Shapiro, these pieces display amethyst stalactite crystal slices that took shape over millions of years deep within caves. She sets each ancient treasure in a bold recycled brass bezel that emphasizes the stone's natural beauty. Handmade in New York City.

Make it a set! Pair with the matching necklace and ring.

“A goal is just a dream without a deadline.”

There was never a moment that Emilie Shapiro didn't consider herself an artist. "Before I could speak I expressed myself through what I made with my hands," she says. "I am so incredibly lucky that my parents allowed me to pursue life on the path I chose." That path led to a line of jewelry comprised entirely of one-of-a-kind pieces she crafts by combining her metalsmithing skills with her love of found objects. "I have a massive stone collection that I started when I was two," says the New York City resident. "I usually pull out my drawers of gems and minerals and something catches my eye that I haven't seen before or forgot about." When Emilie creates a piece, she says she imagines the wearer seeing a reflection of themselves in it—“beauty in imperfection."
