Get a Load of the Stones That Are Most Key to Giantlion

BY genevieve ang 02/06/2014

“I am such a magpie! I have so many sparkly things in my studio—so many African beads and stones and metal castings, and they all sit in their designated Tupperware,” says Caroline Whittington Young of the fresher-than-fresh line Giantlion. So, of all of this goodness, what’s she drawn to the most? Here, her five top stones right now.

300 giantlion
"Its such a beatiful and calming haven and I am addicted to their waterlemon juice at breakfast. They also have Marmite, which I have a weakness for."

Aquamarine

“It’s my birthstone. When I started working with these stones, I started collecting them in a more raw state because I hadn’t seen raw aquamarine in a lot of jewelry. The color is one of my absolute favorites—it’s very elegant, bright, and just darn beautiful.”

Pyrite
“One of my very first designs was a pyrite cube ring, which has been hugely popular. I usually buy stones that speak to me and hoard them for a while until the right design comes along—not every stone I get will be perfect for a specific design, but it might lend itself nicely to another design down the road.”

Diamonds
“I never thought of myself as a diamond girl until I got engaged! I like using a lot of very small diamonds in a pave style. I like using diamonds more as a subtle accent piece.”

Turquoise
“A lot of my turquoise is from the U.S., from Arizona. The stones I buy are from the Sleeping Beauty Mine and are totally natural, which is really special because a lot of turquoise out there now is dyed. I’ve been using turquoise in its round state—a very simple bezel with just the stone. I don’t want to hide it with anything else.”
