We’re all about bold, statement jewelry - but sometimes it just gets in the way. A heavy bib necklace can weigh you down, a long cuff impedes typing/desk work, and an oversize ring can be uncomfortable. But this silver-plated brass braided cage ring by Fortune Favors the Brave is practical and chic - slip it on and your hands will still be fully functioning!

The best things in life are the simplest things, right? Certainly true when it comes to Etsy seller TDesign, or Tania Gnecchi. Based in Sydney, Australia, Gnecchi makes all of her simple yet elegant jewelry by hand in her studio using a variety of colored polymer clay beads. We love the classic necklaces and earrings, as well as the affordable price tag: everything is under $50!


You might recognize Joy Gryson as the designer behind high-end lines Gryson and Olivia Harris, and now she has just launched her newest brand: IIIBeCa (pronounced like the New York City neighborhood, TriBeCa). What differentiates this collection from the other two? Gryson’s chic designs for IIIBeCa all retail for under $200, so you can snag her stylish must-haves without breaking the bank. Proceeds from sales also go to three organizations close to the designer’s heart: The 9/11 Memorial, Family Focus Adoption Services (which Gryson’s mom helped found), and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Hospital.
