I was lucky enough to be introduced to the gorgeous jewellery of Xander Kostroma last Christmas. His beautiful designs use semi-precious stones and are then finished with either 925 sterling silver or 14k gold plated components and findings. As a fan of unusual, exquisite jewellery, I absolutely love his pieces, the intricate use of semi precious stones in a range of striking colours that give the jewellery a modern look that catches the eye and scream ‘statement piece’. These are designs that both work well when worn for a evening out with your most stylish black dress, or worn casually with your jeans and tee.
The Gold Tone Curb Chain and Quartz Statement Crystal Bracelet from the current range is absolutely my favourite piece of jewellery at the moment, one that I seem to be wearing every single day.
Lovingly handmade by our talented in-house jewellery makers, this bracelet is made using a 14k gold plated metal curb chain with a row of quartz stones in an asymmetrical design.
This bracelet is gorgeous, and will certainly appeal to anyone with a love of 1980’s statement pieces, with its combination of gold tone and white quartz stones. It is unique in that the cut of each piece of quartz is different, almost giving this a quirky look that instantly catches the eye. It looks great just worn as a single piece of jewellery on the wrist, but, due to the extender chain, it could be worn further up the arm, and then layered with more delicate chain or gemstone bracelets, possibly of a different colour for a striking look.
I love that this bracelet not only looks exquisite, but also that due to the nature of quartz, it could also be helping you too. As Xander explains:-
Quartz can balance and revitalize the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes. Quartz is used to cleanse and enhance the organs and it’s perfect for deep soul cleansing, connecting the physical dimension with the mind. It’s also perfect for enhancing psychic abilities.
Even though it is only August, we are starting to think of the ‘C’ word and looking at gift ideas. Xander Kostroma pieces make exquisite gifts at any time of the year, for birthdays or Christmas, as they come beautifully packaged in the most fabulous black and skull gift bags. This means they are brilliant for actually being sent through the post to a friend or loved one – a really perfect, thoughtful gift idea.
