Flash Post: A Real Gem

Soap Stones

What It Is: It’s a faceted gem! It’s a work of art! It’s a bar of soap! Actually, it’s all three. The design duo behind Pelle Designs has generated quite a bit of buzz for their adorable, artistic interpretations of precious gemstones which can be displayed on their own, piled on top of each other, or actually used as soap (in the guest bathroom where it’s most visible, obviously). The soaps come in three sizes – Rock, Stone, and Nugget – and a variety of styles, colours, and scents, like ‘Amber’ which in turn smells like ‘Sandalwood’.

Who It’s For: Buy a soap in someone’s birthstone as a fun birthday gift. Get a stack of nuggets for your mom’s newly renovated bathroom as a perfect finishing touch. Stock up and have them on-hand a houseguest gifts for summer cabin stays.

What It Costs: Depends on the size you want. The pint-sized nuggets are $8, while the largest-sized rocks climb up to $32. Shipping for a set of 7 stones is $10, and I imagine the costs fluctuate depending on how much you order.

Where It’s At: The Pelle Designs website.
