As far as Italian jewelry designers go, Bvlgari is the most well-known. But nestled in Rome's Odescalchi palazzo is the atelier and shop of Lucia Odescalchi, a princess who specializes in avant-garde jewelry design. Using classic Roman metalworking techniques, no two of her pieces are identical. While most of the line can cost well into the thousands, this statement collar clocks in under $300. Meant to be worn in reverse, the graphic choker is the perfect accent under an unbuttoned white blouse or with a sexy date-night dress.
Lucia Odescalchi Pitagora necklace, $280 at Luisa Via Roma.
