Best Bet: Collette Ishiyama’s Stingray Jewelry


Sure, you’ve got your gold, silver, brass, and variously feathered, beaded, and studded accessories. But Collette Ishiyama’s jewelry collection incorporates a less common fabrication: stingray. The inlaid centerpieces provide a striking textural contrast to the surrounding carved gold and white brass. Though the shapes are Art Deco–inspired, the overall effect is decidedly modern. Good news for tax season: The Pratt alum’s debut line is also relatively affordable, with most pendants and earrings hovering around $100.
