Mahnaz Collection

With an eye for mid- to late-20th-century jewels and a penchant for bright, bold stones and thick bands of yellow gold, Mahnaz represents a refreshingly modern collection of vintage jewelry. This lapis, diamond, and gold ring by German artist and jeweler Otto Jakob straddles the line between sculpture and adornment, as many pieces in the storied Mahnaz Collection do.

Mahnaz Collection lapis, diamond, and yellow gold ring, $8,500;
