Best Bet: Make Love


There’s no denying that we love our jewels, but bling looks even better when it’s for a cause we can get behind. Yassai 7’s new collection features several tough, cool pieces with a strong anti-war message expressed in each. The Loved necklace, with a thick gunmetal chain and letters spelled out in weapons, aims to end the inhumane trade of blood diamonds, with a witty, visual play on the sixties slogan “Make love, not war.” The stainless-steel necklace, with its rough, graphic metal, is the perfect accessory for any fashion-conscious girl with a conscience.

Yassai 7 Loved necklace, $75 at Cockpit USA, 652 Broadway, nr. Bond St.; 212-254-4000 or at
