Rugged forms, jagged edges, uneven cuts made lustrous, smooth and gleaming. That's the intrigue of Concrete Polish, a handcrafted line of jewelry from Angela Monaco. Her pieces have a unique energy, the feel of elements torn from the earth and polished into a powerful prettiness. Surprisingly they are also affordable, ranging from $60 earrings to $360 rings. At midrange ($175) is the bauble on my wish list: Gold Quartz Blaster with Gemstone.
