Q: What’s the difference between a rock star and star rocks?
A: You clap for both, but only one gives you the clap back.
We jest — but jewelry designer Andy Lifschutz’s creations are no joke.
He claims the one-of-a-kind baubles are made in Brooklyn, but we’re not fooled: These rings were clearly mined from a magic mountain. Each crystal chunk (rainbow and white quartz, pyrite) looks like it’s nesting in bronze, sterling silver, or yellow or rose gold memory foam.
Lifschutz uses only domestic materials and reclaimed metals and seems to have a hippie ethos for design (our words). He loves to collaborate with nature (his words) and cites summers spent by the sandstone cliffs and beaches of Santorini as inspiration.
Prices range from $250 to $2,500. So no matter how you roll, you’ll still be rockin’.
