About the collection:

  • Vertex Cuff from Marja Germans Gard: This cuff is not for the faint of heart.  The clean lines and soft curves draw you in, and its satisfying heft makes you feel just a bit more powerful. Own it. Hand-carved in wax and cast in yellow bronze, this cuff measures about 7/8″ wide. One size (fits small to medium wrists)
  • Ascot in Orange Stripe from Lilian Asterfield: Two gorgeous silk ties have been transformed into our Ascot. Each design is hand-ruffled & hand-stitched and may be worn it a few ways. Tie in a bow, tie in a knot or leave the tails hanging.
  • 14K Gold Rose Cut Rainbow Moonstone Ring from LilyEmme: This gorgeous 9 carat rainbow moonstone displays a beautiful rainbow in a subtle and lovely way. It’s hard to photograph the rainbow in this specimen, but it’s definitely an impressive gem to see in person. Set in solid 14K gold from recycled sources with a matte finish, this one-of-a-kind ring is the perfect cocktail or statement ring.
  • Portofino Pouch in Black Grid by Lee Coren: Adorably compact, the Portofino zip-top pouch perfectly secures your small essentials such as keys, cards, lip balm and cash. Our minimalist Grid pattern is screen printed on both sides. Positioning may change.
  • Custom Designed Choozii Shoe from Zuzii: Choozii is a little bit of code that allows you to be the maker; you get to select from all of our available leather colors, pattern colors, laces, and soling options to design your perfect pair!
