Like nature’s own fordite or stone versions of fiery synapses at play, images of the one-of-a-kind pieces in Kothari Design’s Experimental jewelry line will stay with you even if you don’t bring a style home. Designer Tej Kothari added several new pendant necklaces to Experimental upon discovery of chic new subjects of interest: unique agates (a go-to mineral in the collection for their earthy-hued milky ways of color), spearmint-green zoisite spotted with patches of fuchsia, and other stones. And while you can get repeatable looks in the artist’s Elemental (widely available gemstones) and Ornamental (diamonds and rarer stones) collections, the one-of-a-kind look in Experimental needs to be snapped up immediately upon admiration because the exact same look won’t ever be seen again.
