Alanna Bess Jewelry

The other day I discovered this amazing jewelry by luxury designer Alanna Bess and I was completely blown away. She creates the most raw, exquisitely natural looking pieces all with strong metals and vibrantly colored stones. I think what caught my eye first was the shapes of the stones. The unique shapes, combined with the eye-catching colors makes for some very show-stopping statement jewelry. Check out a few of my favorites found on CoutureCandy.com...

Alanna Bess Raw Jasper Ring, $208.60, CoutureCandy
This ring is the perfect example of the shapes I was talking about. How revolutionary it looks, a raw cut crystal held so daintily on the gold bands. It's such a great fusion of textures, not to mention a striking contrast of color, and all of the combined elements make for quite a timeless piece.

Alanna Bess Circle Chalcedony Necklace $96, CoutureCandy
I love the sprinkled, gravely gold on this pendant. It seems to combine the utmost glamor with an earthy, natural element much in the same way as the ring above, but while somehow maintaining a completely different look. I love how original each piece is!
