An edgy twist on fine jewelry might be just the thing for fashionistas this season. Indulge in one-of-a-kind pieces studded with diamonds or glimmering with gold — above all, something that impresses whether it’s on your wrist or around your neck. The best of the best of autumn’s fine jewelry, cut to perfection, will look perfect on you.
This 14-karat white, rose and black gold cuff bracelet demonstrates the intricacies and craft of fine jewelry. The 14-karat black gold mesh is delicately fused with the white gold shape of the piece. Topping off the gorgeous cuff are fine diamonds and diamond flowers. Available at Forever Diamonds, 5508 Sunrise Highway, Massapequa, NY, $9,200
