Sterling silver necklace with two letters and heart

It All Adds Up

We love a new take on personalized jewelry, and Mathematics NYC’s blend of sentiment and secrecy is too cool to pass up. The stylized letter charms look abstract when hanging on a chain, but change the angle and they reveal the secret message of your choice. mathematicsnyc.com

$345

Responsibly Ravishing

Modern luxury is more than beauty, and Enji Studio Jewelry is the perfect example of what a contemporary jeweler with passion for both design and sustainability can achieve: one-of-a-kind architecturally inspired stunners handmade with recycled and fair trade materials. enjistudiojewelry.com
