I am loving this trend of wearing large geode slices, amethysts and druzys as necklaces. My grandmother collected rocks and fossils and I have many items from her collection (and some that I collected myself) to this day. I was totally that nerdy kid who found stones and minerals on the beach and polished them in the rock tumbler that she got for Christmas. I actually also had a kit to make jewelry out of the stones I collected and in hindsight, I think I was not so much nerdy (okay, still pretty nerdy) but also a little ahead of the times! I told Corey the other day and his response was "What's a rock tumbler?" Go figure!
Anyway, everywhere I look lately, I see the gorgeous and oh-so-chic statement necklaces made of geodes or similar formations and I LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

One of my favourite blogs, Bower Power also ran a sponsored post this week by jewelry designer, Paige Sargisson. My favourite item on her website was hands down the gold and diamond agate necklace (below) for $590.00.
Etsy and put together a round-up of necklaces in a similar style.

Beautiful, right? Still, my favourite find was this teal sliced agate necklace (below) by Lea Marie Designs and listed for $44.00. I think I like her designs best because she offers longer chains, the 14k gold plating around the edges add a luxurious touch and this necklace looks much more expensive than it is! I also love that this particular seller photographs each individual necklace, so you are buying exactly what you see and not something similar.
