Best Bet: Raw-Cut Rings


An unusual cocktail ring is the kind of eye-catching accessory that consistently draws admirers. After the rise of the ubiquitous knuckle-duster trend, these sculptural Cone rings by Brooklyn jewelry artist Carrie Bilbo offer a fresh new form. The sterling silver and 24-karat-gold-plated bases are each topped with a pink, blue, or yellow raw-cut sapphire, giving them an imperfect, ruggedly cool look. Rock the ring out at night or splurge on Bilbo's raw stone pendant for day.

Cone ring, $140 (gold) or $170 (silver) online.
