    Off The Grid

    WHAT: Steven Grotell Pearl Boullée Square Grid Ring...WHY: Pearls lose their prissy factor when they're mounted on 18K yellow gold studs in a square grid formation on this Steven Grotell made-to-order creation. The effect? A simultaneous hit of clean-lined modernity and, since the studs are obscured at first glance, a refined bit of edge.

    WHAT: Jolie Canvas Clutch...WHY: Snakeskin is a perennial chicette fave (understandably so), but when mixed with a poppy hue and canvas, the effect takes on a lighter, sweeter feel. This Khirma Eliazov yellow canvas clutch, swathed in a neutral wrap of python, is the perfect package.
