Leave it to Alexander Wang to make geology cool. His debut collection for Balenciaga sent models down a cool Carrera marble runway in matching marble-swirled tops, pants, and even fur jackets. Needless to say, a trend was born. Ever since, we’ve been drawn to raw stones and natural prints for everything from chunky jewelry to our home décor. And with summer on the horizon, we’re searching for statement-making turquoise pieces, too; it’s the one color that never goes out of style. Rest assured we’ll leave no stone unturned this season.

Robert Rodriguez has dabbled with jewelry since last season, but his pre-spring offerings are completely buzz-worthy. The capsule line of necklaces, pendants, and cuffs was inspired by the graphic mosaic prints in his Resort range. A sharp contrast to the designer’s more feminine MO, the jewels, which are all made in L.A. in collaboration with Rodriguez’s longtime friend and design partner Billy Belack, are plated in nickel and gunmetal to create a harder, more punk rock feel. “I love accessorizing with jewelry to give my clothing an edge,” he tells Style.com. And lucky for him (and for us), there’s much more to come. The designer revealed that he will be launching a complete collection for Spring 2013. But for now, set your sights on this crystal-encrusted bib necklace ($295, available at RobertRodriguezcollection.com in the fall).
