The handmade and handcrafted jewelry features several gems and potent semi-precious stones, including Turquoise, Coral, Gaspeite, Onyx and lots more from all over the world.

Some of our favorite pieces include the multi-strand beaded necklace with the multicolored stone pendant, white buffalo earrings, infinity cuff, and summer fans earrings.

While we opted out of the engraving (our charm choices were too small), we went all bronze. We settled on a bronze necklace with a bronze little luna charm with a mountain charm on either side. Take a look at our classic beauty below:

We look forward to wearing our necklace, especially when the charms have so much history and have so much positivity in their meanings. We’d love to hear your thoughts on the Don Lucas Jewelry SS 2019 Collection and of course our necklace.
