Rustic Gemstone Jewelry from Midwinter Co
I’m actually surprised it took me so long to write about these guys. I discovered their beautiful, minimalist rough gemstone jewelry on Fab.com years ago and I’ve been a fan ever since! Along with Gorjana, they are my absolute favorite jewelry brand and I have several pieces from them. Midwinter Co. specializes in working with American artisans and fair trade, eco-friendly studios around the world to create one of a kind jewelry with hand-picked “perfectly flawed diamonds, rough uncut gemstones, and high quality, uniquely styled metals.” Every girl loves polished, faceted gemstones, but these strike me because they are all natural paired with a beautiful contrasting, antique-looking metal! They also have a beautiful collection of uncut diamond jewelry. The company is run by a Delaware couple who took the plunge many years back, quit their jobs and became “business focused artists.” All materials are carefully chosen to be sure they are coming from ethical sources, and 10% of all proceeds go to various charities.
The jewelry we design offers a new, fresh perspective of the raw beauty and character of natural gems.”
I own four necklaces from them: A rough amethyst necklace, a citrine necklace, a labradorite necklace and one made of 6 pyrite, jasper and onyx beads. I am a bit of a rock hound, and always like to be sure to be wearing some kind of mineral all the time. These always make the cut!
