For those who can't enough of Fiat Lux, the tiny Castro jeweler's new Tempus collection is now available on the shop's website and in real life at 218 Church Street. The brand describes Tempus as "an attempt to understand our collective relationship to our shared pasts and the open future." Merging ancient symbolism into modern shapes, these are the kinds of pieces that stand out in a crowd. Prices range between $50 for engraved sterling stud earrings to $4,460 for a 14K gold diamond ring.
Fiat Lux is known for curating pieces that are kinda odd —remember the goat hammers and bracelet daggers?— so this primal-looking collection fits perfectly with the store's aesthetic. Crazy gorgeous and a little bit offbeat: what's not to love?
