The Wonderland necklace and other gemological fantasies by Daniela Villegas ♦ ︎
18K yellow gold, amethyst, citrine, rondonite, fire opal, jade, azurite, kyanite, tourmaline, agate, aquamarine, opal, rhodochrosite, zircon, peridot, sapphires, pearls from the South Sea. These are the stones that make up Wonderland, a necklace by Daniela Villegas. The list of gemstones resembles a lesson in gemology, but the result resembles a happy hymn to life.
The Wonderland necklace is a unique piece and was immediately sold for over 51,000 euros.
The Los Angeles-based designer thought in the power of colors to relieve stress, calm the pain, dissolve negative thoughts and bring joy. Daniela Villegas, who is also famous for her jewels reproducing insects or wild animals in a creative and imaginative way, with stones reminiscent of the bright colors of neighboring Mexico, also makes a series of necklaces that deviate a little from her production more typical, but retain the liveliness of its unmistakable style.
