WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND OUR CHIP COLLECTION DESIGNS? The inspiration for our Chip Collection actually came from a new design in our Eternity Collection. We had recently designed some of our Eternity Collection pieces to include half-inch chip gemstones. While finalizing our Fall 2017 designs for release, we LOVED the half-inch gemstones so much, we decided to incorporate them into future designs! We decided that an ALL half-inch chip gemstone bracelet would be so much FUN! The ALL CHIP design would be different than our current offerings; it would be bigger and more of a statement and would really compliment our all metal pieces and #1 selling quartz cuff.
The first Chip Collection pieces were actually released in Fall 2017, under the Eternity Collection and when the ALL CHIP designs became available, the Eternity Collection chip pieces were moved and the Chip Collection was born. The ALL CHIP designs were released in late Fall/Winter 2017. The brighter, more vivid colors came that following Spring.
WHAT STONES ARE USED IN OUR CHIP COLLECTION - LAVENDER BRACELETS? We use Blue Lace Agate stones in our Chip Collection - Lavender Bracelet designs. Blue Lace Agate is a type of banded chalcedony that belongs to the quartz family. The bands within the stone form different colors, predominantly light blue, but also bright blue, brown, and white. Blue lace agate is one of the most popular AND rarest agates available.
Many believe that Blue Lace Agate carries healing properties and helps the wearer of the stone to feel harmony while calming anxiety and allowing them to feel more hopeful.
HOW CAN YOU STYLE THE CHIP COLLECTION BRACELETS? Where to begin? The options are LITERALLY endless. There are currently 45 options to choose from in our Chip Collection. Several Chip Collection designs are currently LAST CALL and stock is limited on those beauties so get them while you still can! The Chip Collection designs are available in multiple gemstones, including Amazonite, Howlite, Jade, Rose Quartz, Obsidian, and Turquoise.
