Sometimes it’s hard to get excited about designer/store collaborations, especially when they happen so often.  Although we must confess, Isabel Marant’s upcoming collaboration with H&M makes our insides feel all warm inside.

But before you start sighing with your biggest Michelle Obama eye roll, we suggest taking a moment to check out Richard Chai’s nature-inspired collection for JewelMint, which we think is pretty rad.

His first foray into jewelry design, Chai proves he’s a contender in the world of accessories.

The CFDA Award winner’s  limited-edition collection for JewelMint includes an assortment of fancy rings, necklaces, and earrings, all of which feature brilliantly blue sapphires set in hammered silver.

And get this – the collection is totally affordable. Ranging from $29 for a pair of Rain Earrings to $59 for a multi-strand Rain Lariat Necklace, owning a Richard Chai original won’t break the bank.

RCxJM collection is part of  JewelMint’s Studo Series, an ongoing collaboration program featuring exclusive jewelry collections by prominent fashion designers.
