Gold and Turquoise Jewelry: Isle See You in My Dreams

Nothing screams summer on the Greek Isles louder than gold and turquoise jewels (except for me, when I scream, “gold and turquoise jewels!”). Even if you won’t be retreating to Mykonos over the next few months, and will only be lounging by the backyard pool, you can still look like you’re sunning on a yacht in the French Riviera.

Federica Rettore Double Baroque Pearl Diamond Ring: Two If By Sea

In fact, unique is not the right word – this is one-of-a-kind. The Italian jeweler uses rare gems like Paraiba tourmaline to create her masterpieces, and I love this deep sea beauty best of all.
