Trends: Agate, Geode & Druzy

A trend I've been noticing recently has been drawn from nature and has ended up in retail stores are Rocks! Well not just any rocks but rocks that are layered, crystalline and colorful like agate, geode and druzy. I first noticed it on Marios Scwab's Fall RTW 09 collection but more recently in the prints from Alexander McQueen's current collection in stores. He created an agate print dress as well as accessories including this scarf. Yves Saint Laurent's current jewelry collection also includes agate in the form of the lovely purple earrings that seem to glow from within.

A more recent discovery for me is by jewelry designer Dara Ettinger whose fabulous jewelry includes this amazing gold dipped druzy geode ring. This is jewelry with a cause! For a limited time until March 31st, 2010, Dara Ettinger is donating 30% of all sales made on this website will go to support the rescue and relief efforts to the Haitian people. So feel good if you purchase :)

But if these options are a little out of reach, Etsy never fails to impress. My fave finds include this Maya pendant by eringotz, the brazillian necklace by anabananajewelryinc and these slice agate earrings by indiablue.
