GUILTLESS GEMS

Jewelry that conserves style and the environment

Tiffany Kunz Design wants more than to just adorn you in alluring hunks of geodes set on hammered metal. The designer, Tiffany Kunz, is also committed to reducing her environmental footprint without sacrificing her collection’s panache. Each piece of jewelry is handcrafted from reclaimed precious metals such as silver and pink gold vermeil, and Kunz’s eco-consciousness doesn’t end there.  Based in Los Angeles, Tiffany Kunz Design respects the environment in all areas of business, from shipments to production. These pieces offer instant raw glamour without harming the environment—what more could you ask for?

Kunz was inspired by a childhood love for gems passed down from her grandmother for her second collection, Concord. Concord features five suites made from delicate hammered metals and rough and tumble geode accents. The bold irregular ovals are gorgeous in their simplicity, especially contrasted with irregular hunks of stone. The collection achieves a beautiful juxtaposition of unrefined diamond accents and the almost fragile metal bases. The irregular oval bracelets, compact metal cuffs and rings encrusted with a hunk of crystal lend modern elegance to any look. We suggest pairing these pieces with simple garments to keep the attention on the unique gems; think an LBD or chic white sheath.
