If you love gutsy big jewelery like I do, than you are in for a treat. Jewelry designer Bounkit uses giant gems in classic cuts with inventive settings. Designer Hassan Bounkit hails from Morocco, and after switching careers (he was a fashion designer) he found his true calling. His designs are inspired by pieces from the 1940's, and are like wearing rock candy. Plus, the prices are surprisingly fair.
