“These gems have life in them:  their colors speak, say what words fail of.”  ~George Eliot

I  first discovered Bounkit on my never-ending and seemingly impossible quest for the stylish and modern clip on earring.  (Yes, I might be the only woman under the age of 80 who does not have her ears pierced.)  When I finally stumbled upon this treasure trove of gorgeous semi-precious gemstones (that offered all of their earrings with a clip-on option),  I thought I had died and gone to heaven! A native of Morocco, founder Hassan Bounkit launched his jewelery line in 2006.  His inspiration derived from his Mediterranean background, ancient Moroccan designs, art deco and his love of nature.  Each piece is handmade in the label’s New York atelier from crystal, wood and organically cut stones.  Below are just a few of my favorite creations.  I hope you enjoy these elegant and exotic creations as much as I do!  xx Kris
