Thank you to UncommonGoods, who sponsored this post. As always the thoughts and opinions are my own.
I love UncommonGoods‘ uniquely designed jewelry. They feature the type of unique handmade pieces that I really love and admire. Maybe that’s why one of my favorite sections of museums is the jewelry section. I love the old world feel, the imperfections, the creativity that goes into each piece. UncommonGoods really plays with this old world romanticism and I’m happy to share some of my favorites from their jewelry section which you can find here.
I’ve put together a gift guide showcasing their gorgeous pieces that are both natural and old world inspired. Think summery mermaid princess vibes. Intricate gold dipped lace almost like netting, and stones in colors of the sea set in brass rings and necklaces. These dramatic pieces are special gifts for yourself, a friend, or a loved one. Although I think they’d be best as a gift for a strong lady-friend. Also, don’t miss my outfit post featuring a geode necklace from UncommonGoods.
I’m obsessed with ear crawlers so when I saw the My Lucky Stars Earrings I immediately fell in love. Plus, they’re starfish so how perfect is that for summer?
As I said, I’ve spent a lot of time in the jewelry section of museums so I love the Castillo Gold Dipped Lace Earrings and Vine Gold Dipped Lace Bracelet and Ring. They have a gorgeous old world feel to them. Especially the detail of the lace earrings. Fit for a Queen (or mermaid).
It’s the pieces with sea colored stones that I feel have the most power as each stone provides its own healing properties. The Aquamarine Ebb and Flow Pendant with its sea-blue gem inspires courage and inner peace along with the Waterfall Ring. It features aquamarine as well as kyanite which aids in communication. But I’m also drawn to the Stalacite Slice Earrings with gorgeous amethyst stalacite (my birthstone!)
If you’re looking for a nice, simple but pretty choice for a friend, or a group of friends. I’d go for the Besties Cuff in Bronze. The braided design calls back to braided friendship bracelets which is the perfect gift for your bff or your entire girl gang.
UncommonGoods also features designer decor, tabletop items, and handcrafted gifts. Many of their pieces are made in the USA and about one-third of their entire collection is made out of recycled or up-cycled materials. Their mission is to support and provide a platform for artists and designers to feature their work, and about half of the products on UncommonGoods are handmade. I know I’m talking jewelry on the blog today but be sure to check out their other products.
Since it’s almost summer (wedding season), I suggest checking out their Bridesmaids gifts here which includes really pretty agate coasters, whiskey stones (thank you UncommonGoods, because girls drink whiskey too), and a need-in-your-life aromatherapy deluxe gift set.
Or if you’re already hitched, how about their Anniversary gift guide? There’s a lot of wine centered gifts which I’m all about. I’m also digging the artisanal bamboo salt chest which comes with 24 different sprinkling salts. I keep telling Dan we need to replenish our sprinkling salt collection and this is giving me major excitement. Fleur du Sel, Hawaiian Black Lava Salt, Applewood Smoked Sea Salt, Himalayan Pink Salt…and those are just a few! Can you imagine the possibilities?
Along with supporting the artistic community, UncommonGoods gives back with their Better to Give program. With every purchase, they give $1 to the non-profit of your choice including RAINN, American Forests, Women for Women International, and City Harvest. Not only are they trying to impact the world in a positive way by giving back, they’re also spreading awareness about these charities to their customers.
