    Charmed, I’m Sure

    Every woman should have a great charm bracelet, and I am obsessed with this Louis Vuitton one, which has retro-looking touches of green malachite. (18k pink gold, diamond, and malachite bracelet, price upon request, louisvuitton.com)

    You Go, Pearl!

    I’m excited about seeing so many pearl rings for spring, but my favorite is this architectural one by Taffin, with graduated pearls. (Platinum, freshwater and South Sea pearl, and jade ring, price upon request, 212.421.6222)

    Like a Moth to a Flame

    I would love to take credit for discovering jeweler Jack Du Rose, but of course Damien Hirst beat me to it—it was Du Rose who in 2006 executed the artist’s $100 million diamond-encrusted skull. Since then, Du Rose has been busy crafting beautiful creatures for his debut collection, Danger, which features eight unique pieces, including this moth brooch (left). (18k white gold, pink tourmaline, black, white, and pink diamond brooch, price upon request, 011.44.20.7845.7800)

    Bling It On

    Stephen Webster’s over-the-knuckle rings with gemstones (far left) take biker chic to another level (prices upon request, stephenwebster.com); and this Boucheron watch (left) glitters with more than 700 diamonds and 100 sapphires (price upon request, boucheron.com).

    Opposites Attract

    I like the sense of balance in these Hemmerle earrings—the feminine shades of the pink and red tourmaline stones are offset by the geometric design. (Copper, white gold, orange-red tourmaline, peach tourmaline, and sapphire earrings, price upon request, hemmerle.com)

    I Want Candy

    Pomellato’s latest one-of-a-kind additions to the Pom Pom Collection are so deliciously colored, you feel as if you’re wearing candy. (From top: 18k white gold, tanzanite, and diamond ring; 18k white gold, aquamarine, pink sapphire, and diamond ring, prices upon request, 800.254.6020)
