If you think earthy can’t be edgy, then you clearly haven’t met Sarah Swell. For fall, Oakland jewelry designer Sarah Greenberg has launched a collection where fossils, one-of-a-kind crystals and conflict-free diamonds mingle with chunky brass, bullet forms and mixed metals. The result: a striking balance of tough girl charm and sweet, starry-eyed appeal.
The collection ($117 and up) includes the perfect-for-stacking, hand-carved Ridgeback ring, bullet-shaped rings and necklaces and fossil pendants, available in a choice of metals (silver, brass and patina brass, among them) and with or without diamonds. If making a statement is on your list, one-of-a-kind Crystalline Slice rings featuring crystal from Uruguay or the silver Fishbone bracelet should do the trick, and then some.
Select fall pieces are available in Greenberg’s online shop, and you can more styles available online at The Marin Store or in person at San Francisco boutiques such as Collage Gallery in Potrero Hill and Gallery of Jewels on Union St.
