For Pretty Things, New York design editor Wendy Goodman is selecting one visually pleasing object every day.

“Just walking into Federico de Vera’s cabinet of curiosities at 1 Crosby Street and you’re engulfed in ‘pretty,’ then enchantment, then jewelry lust,” says Wendy. “My favorites are his rings of flat-cut old mine diamonds and his way with pearls. De Vera composes unique jewelry pieces, so no two are ever the same. He has the most poetic sense of ethereal beauty.”

Starting at $9,500 from De Vera, 1 Crosby St., at Howard St., 212-625-0838, deveraobjects.com
