Colored Stones, October 2020: Harwell Godfrey’s Hexed Collection


Under Her Spell

For obvious reasons, talismanic ­jewels, designed to protect the wearer, have taken on new resonance in 2020. Harwell Godfrey designer Lauren Harwell Godfrey has always woven protective symbols into her designs—her new Hexed capsule collection incorporates gemstones that promote healing. Each of the four pendants in the collection pairs two ­“powerful stones” bordering a pyramid in the center that represents “our temple of self,” Godfrey says. Each pendant also represents a personality type: the visionary, the peacemaker, the adventurer, or the lover. “I thought it would be really interesting to pair stones that, when combined, not only have a powerful energy story,” she says, “but a strong color story, too.”
