WHAT: Atelier Minyon 24K, oxidized silver, emerald and raw diamond stackable ring
WHY: Because as much as you like your gems pristine (and why shouldn't you?), there's something almost doubly precious about this raw-eged ring. The base is hammered silver and 14 karat gold, with a brilliant emerald center and diamonds that may be raw, but are far from being dirty little pebbles. Black-tie ready? Definitely. But the best part about it is that it will be equally at home with ripped jeans and your favorite old tee.
AVAILABLE: Atelier Minyon, SoHo, NYC, 646 478 7220

WHAT: Barton Perreira Gilbert glasses in Heroine Chic
WHY: Because glasses are often an underappreciated accessory---particularly for those with 20/20 vision. Just because you don't need 'em doesn't mean you should be left out of the fun! The Spectacle, Fred Segal's optical boutique, offers Oliver Peoples, Salt, Paul Smith, Moscot, Anne et Valentin...the list goes on. Our favorites? This Barton Perreira tortoiseshell pair. After all, for every boy out there who dreamed of being a superhero, isn't there a girl who wanted to be a heroine?
AVAILABLE: The Spectacle at Fred Segal, 500 Broadway, Santa Monica, 310.394.1875

WHAT: Juliette Jake crocodile clutch in Blood Red
WHY: This week is a week of fêtes (Love! Elle! FGI! GQ! And don't forget Alber's Halloween bash...), but having this clutch in your rotation will prove valuable, particularly when you feel the urge to fall back on that LBD once again. We don't judge, darlings---but we will say this: a little red goes a long way. And if there's one thing more gorgeous than luxe crocodile, it's luxe croc in a look-at-me shade.
