Monday Obsession: Concrete Polish Jewelry

Especially when it's 25 percent off.


This isn’t the first time I’ve written about Concrete Polish, Angela Monaco’s line of sculptural jewelry that’s all made right here in Philly. I’m an unabashed fangirl of the collection—yep, I even added her gold spike ring to my wedding stack. I got that ring at Philly Mag Shops last year, and I plan on getting another one (perhaps in rose gold?) this year.

Why I love it: The Concrete Polish collection spans knuckle-dusters to more delicate pieces (those tiny rose-gold cluster earrings above!), and the prices are fantastic. You’re looking at $45 for a pair of studs, $160 for a cluster ring (see it on the top right corner, above), $130 for a cool fox ring, and $215 for the snake bangle. Other pieces—those sculpted around gems and minerals—can run you a bit more, but it’s all totally worth it.

And they all get a bit more wallet-friendly this Sunday, October 5th, as every piece will be 25 percent off at Philly Mag Shops. Cheer!

On October 5th, Concrete Polish—along with four other fab jewelry stores (Bario Neal, TownHome, John Wind and Menagerie), three home and gift stores, 15 boutiques, and nine local designers—will be setting up shop in the Crane Arts Building at 1400 North American Street in Philly, and selling their best, in-season goods at crazy, one-day-only discounts.

Also on hand: manis, braids and buns, makeup, drinks and food. It’s a shopping extravaganza! And you need to get tickets now.

Buy tickets here. See you there!
