I love jewels that speak of travels to faraway places and generation-surviving family heirlooms. But usually, the two are mutually exclusive. What makes Artisan’s gold, diamond, and amethyst ring a standout: I can’t decide if it looks more like a gem I picked up on an adventure in Istanbul or Marrakech or something plundered out of my grandmother’s treasure-filled jewel box.
Either way, it’s a rare piece that’s at once hearty and bold, gentle and delicate. Where’s the amethyst, you ask? This stone is green, making it all the more atypical. Eighteen-karat gold is blended with darkened sterling silver, bringing a sense of intrigue to the rows of little diamonds. On Net-a-Porter for $2,090.
