The Vault: Colored Stones, June 2017



CAN’T-MISS COLLECTION

Sweet Dreamcatcher

Designers have long been inspired by the symbolism—both spiritual and visual—of dream catchers. Now, Audrius Krulis has put his own precious-metal spin on the Native American craft, with a floaty, feather-filled 28-piece-and-growing Dreamcatcher collection lit by such luminous gems as moonstone and tourmaline. “Moonstone and star sapphire, especially, have a dreamy, effervescent quality to them,” says Krulis, who’ll be showing at the Design Center at JCK Las Vegas. “If you try to catch the light, the magic disappears. But if you let it play, it comes to life.” Dream on!

HOT STOCK TIP

Charm’s Way

Perfect for mixing, matching, and swapping out when your mood (or outfit) changes, Page Sargisson’s Stone Charms provide sweet pops of color at an even sweeter price—just $120. (An acorn-shape version, with a bullet-cut gem, retails for $195.) The options—chrysoprase, turquoise, amethyst, to name just a few—are almost overwhelming, and Sargisson is already working on more. “I bought a ton of new stones in Tucson,” says the Brooklyn, N.Y.–based designer, “so I’ll be introducing star sapphires, geodes, malachite, opal, and labradorite.”
