Obsidian Jewelry

Obsidian is a unique stone formed from volcanic lava. It has played a major role in the economy, spiritual customs, warfare, and of course, jewelry of ancient cultures. It was used as barter material, sharpened for arrows, spears and knives for spiritual rites, and mirrors. Visit Novica's gallery of obsidian jewelry and admire contemporary jewelry designs by artisan silversmiths across the world.

Sandra and Lily in Peru like the contrast between obsidian and silver, which they highlight in the modern design of symmetrical dangle earrings. Claudia Llaury's two-in-one pendant necklace can be worn with obsidian on one side, Peruvian opal on the other.

Our specialized obsidian jewelry collection includes mahogany obsidian silver rings as well as snowflake obsidian necklaces.
