At Etsy, we're big fans of the boho trend in all its forms—from fashion to weddings to home decor—but there's a new twist on boho jewelry that's carving out its own glittering niche: druzy jewelry. Druzies are minerals or stones (often agate) with surfaces covered in tiny, naturally formed crystals. These glittering gems present a more flexible, feminine alternative to some of the more aggressively chunky, raw-crystal pieces out there, making it easy to dress up or down (while still sating our awards-season appetite for all things sparkly). "The great thing about this trend—and probably why it's continued to grow in popularity for a while now—is its wearability," says Gabriella Cetrulo, resident jewelry expert on Etsy's merchandising team. "It makes a statement regardless of size. Whether you don a delicate pendant or a large boho-style cuff, people will take note of its shimmery effect."
Read on for Gabriella's favorite shops for druzy jewelry.

Frieda + Sophie black druzy pendant, $75.65

For streamlined designs that let the stone be the star: Frieda + Sophie

Thanks to their minimalist settings and unadorned forms, the pendants and rings at Frieda + Sophie preserve the mystical magic of the stones themselves—and the specimens they stock are truly stunning. "I love the simplicity of their designs," Gabriella says. "I could imagine these versatile gems suiting a variety of tastes and styles."
Happy Little Gems silver and gold studs, $150

For something dainty and delicate: Happy Little Gems

If there's such a thing as a demure druzy piece, you'll find it in the Wisconsin-based jewelry shop Happy Little Gems. Designer Miriam fashioned these mixed-metal mini-gems with bridesmaids in mind.
Luxdivine agate druzy ring, $85

For mega-rings and heavy-duty cuffs: Luxdivine

If your heart beats only for boho, go directly to Luxdivine to browse oversized cocktail rings, wrapped-silk chokers, and chunky cuffs—then layer them on by the half-dozen. "If you're feeling extra goddess-like, you can order one of their dreamy druzy crowns (for everyday wear, ideally)," Gabriella says.
Rachel Pfeffer sterling silver and druzy ring, $128

For colorful pieces with a playful twist: Rachel Pfeffer

With settings inspired by Saturn's rings, sunbeams, and half moons, Rachel Pfeffer's designs underscore the druzy's cosmic vibes. SONY DSC
