The last few seasons have seen blinged-up accessories adorning the catwalks and retail shelves everywhere. Statement neckpieces with shiny stones, finer jewelry with diamonds and diamanté, as well as coloured gemstones to finish off an outfit of the day perfectly. Now, it’s all about returning to the roughest form of the stone – uncut and unpolished. So, If you’re looking for a little something to spoil yourself with, or an inexpensive accessory to add to the upcoming season’s wardrobe, then find yourself a piece of jewellery or an accessory with a raw gemstone or crystal. The choice is endless – think Moonstone, Aquamarine, Morganite, Agate or Rose Quarts – but make sure that the look is unfinished and raw to wear this micro-trend perfectly. Raw stones are also recognised as carrying certain healing qualities within them, but whether you believe in these powers to heal or not, you can’t deny that they have an innate natural beauty that brings an ethereal quality with them.
