Twinkling gemstones under perfect lining is what’s made us swoon over glass cases for decades. But, following suit of a “greener” and more natural generation, “raw” or “mineral” jewelry is what many are showing off these days.
From diamonds to lesser known crystals, the unrefined aesthetic of raw jewelry offers wearers an ethereal vibe. There is something more wild about a stone that hasn’t been perfectly cut or tumbled or shined, making it a fitting look for explorers to stay grounded and true to their roots.
But not all stones are great for beading and jewelry purposes. So, which ones should you keep your eyes peeled for?
Quartz is a specific type of mineral that gives a crystalline structure.
Lastly, raw diamonds are perhaps even more stunning than the ones found in our favorite jewelry stores. Offering an organic take on such a strong symbol of love and commitment, a raw diamond can manifest so much meaning. That makes it an amazing alternative engagement ring for the girl with wanderlust and would love to share the world with someone special.
Opal, clear crystal quartz, rose quartz, peridot and more can become gorgeous raw pieces. But, whether or not you prefer a manicured gem or one that’s come in such a natural form, they’re all such a precious gift from our earth.
