The most captivating jewels are the ones that look like they have stories to tell, as if they’ve had many lives. Erickson Beamon has a way of blending handmade tenderness and powerful “oomph” that look equally like family heirlooms and of-the-season must-haves. This is the kind of ring you might discover in a fantastically warped jewel box. From every angle it is beautifully and oddly alluring. By cramming the back of the bent band with crystals, the ring has dimension and one-of-a-kind idiosyncrasy. Add to it a startlingly bright green faceted gem and the result is spellbinding. The curvature is very Victorian, the look vintage (but at a fraction of the price), and the appeal captivating. Wear it and you’ll have many of your own stories to tell. At Barneys New York for $355.
Pair with: Wear your “she’s got it” ring with the “gotta have it” bag. The Yves Saint Laurent Chyc Cabas is an instant classic. Mesmerizing jade would look extra-invigorating with bright magenta. Yves Saint Laurent Chyc Cabas, $1,995.
