At Jussara Lee in the meatpacking district, the pint-size owner guided me to her ring display case. Though she gushed over the smoked-quartz crystal rocks, I preferred the rings carved from dark Canela wood with a yellow quartz by Camila Sarpi. After going to college in Maine, I have a weakness for the Mother Nature look. The stone was polished and certainly gorgeous, but I wanted for something a bit more classic-looking. 11 Little W. 12th St., nr. Ninth Ave.; 212-242-4128.
