Sao Paulo-based jewelry designer Ara Vartanian usually asks his wife Sabrina Gasperin for her opinion after his designs are finished. But when it comes this collection, aptly titled Sabrina by Ara Vartanian. their roles are reversed: she’s the designer and he supports her vision by selecting gemstones and offering his two cents. I love the mask pieces—and the fact that the couple made them working side by side in the same atelier.

“Sabrina by Ara Vartanian” is available at Fivestory New York.
