WHAT: Two Birds & Water Pearls Ring by Simon Sato
WHY: A bird bath has never looked so enticing: this resin and sterling silver ring is oh so whimsical, thanks to a duo of perched chirpers on a crystal ball-esque orb, atop a slew of teensy pearls that jangle around as you gesticulate. Given that it's from the MoMA, it's none too surprising that the translucent digit-donner, sourced from Japan, is a tiny work of art in and of itself.
AVAILABLE: $270, MomaStore.org

WHAT: Tara Pump by Miista
WHY: Get a little quartz-crazy with these gloriously busy Miista pumps, full of too many riveting details to take in upon first glance. To wit: satin imprinted with a lavender-tinged rocky pattern. Ankle straps. And, perhaps most entrancingly, those faceted, color-blocked, oh so angular heels: a bit like that paperweight you can't stop fondling on your desk, a tad stained glass-esque. Excuse us while we go stare at these strange beauties for a bit longer!

WHAT: Eamz Jessie Fluo Mix Nappa by United Nude
WHY: Despite the iconic designer namesake—Charles and Ray Eames—don't expect to be sitting much in these sublimely absurd, elegantly odd United Nude kicks. They simply bode better for strutting, non? The collage of neon-hued Nappa leather and elastic lends a pieced-together effect on the vamp. Out back, the trippy illusion heels ensure a memorable exit. Every. Single. Time.
