Lauren Harper - Necklaces
Lauren Harper travels the corners of the earth to find gemstones of perfect color and distinctiveness. Stones from exotic destinations like Namibia, Botswana, Laos, South Africa, Cambodia, Thailand and India give each piece in the collection a unique sensibility, and a one of a kind story. Harper uses warm 18 kt and 22 kt yellow gold blends and studs them with brightly colored, always changing combinations of precious gemstones such as Moonstones, Peruvian Opals, Black Diamonds, Thai Sapphires, and if course, brilliant White Diamonds. She finds her inspiration by blending the individual characteristics of each stone with the art, architecture and culture of the places she visits. From ancient Egyptian and Byzantine designs, to Khmer ruins, her muse is the world at large. She says, "the collection has its roots in the past, so it is never off trend."
