fine jewelry, etsy styles


Who knew that gorgeous fine jewelry like this could be found on Etsy? These pieces are from Brooklyn-based jewelry designer Blanca Monros Gomez, who works with recycled gold in order to make her business eco-friendly. It's also friendly on the wallet, and since Gomez often takes custom orders, the buyer can have a hand in the creative process as well. All her pieces are beautifully crafted and have a hint of old-world glamour that I really love. I also love that they're available in Gomez's Etsy shop, which you should definitely check out.
