Semiprecious just got an extra dose of... precious.
Our natural gemstones are hand knotted on silk thread and are made with some of our favorite organic materials such as horn, pearl, and bone. The only difference is that these pieces got a little extra dose of sparkle when they were created! Our latest creations combine our love for rustic, bohemian style with our love for precious gems. Each piece below is luxuriously embellished with real diamonds.
