Concrete Polish

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.

Available online, at the Philadelphia showroom and by custom order.  Above: "Root Crystal Growth Rings." Banner photo by Doreen Creede, above photo courtesy ConcretePolish1 via their Instagram.
