Urban Boulder – The Latest In Creative Jewelry Design

June 24th, 2011

I’d like to introduce you to an amazing new foray in the jewelry landscape. Sourced from Australia and based out of New York.

Urban Boulder create contemporary jewelry inspired by the urban environment and crafted with natural precious elements. They draw upon every day, but often overlooked, details from the environment around us and reinterpret the shapes with boulder opal and silver into beautiful pieces of jewelry.

Classified in the same category as diamonds, boulder opal – which makes up only a tiny fraction of the opal mined – contains every color of the rainbow. No two stones are ever the same, so all of the pieces are one of a kind and absolutely glorious.

Lisa Simpson and Remo Carbone, Urban Boulder designers are based in New York City, where they live, and where their urban landscape inspires them in all of their designs. They buy our opal directly from independent miners in outback Queensland (Australia), which makes the jewelry a precious product of an exciting journey.

Below is a behind the scenes creation video, which captures the essence of this clever and beautiful brand.
