Classic jewelry is elegant, spontaneous and, of course, unique. It inspires awe and excitement every time you wear it, year after year, decade after decade. And it’s all in the design. Barry Brinker, known for his use of unexpected luxury adornments, keeps all eyes on the prize by making this necklace’s focal point a breathtaking antique Chinese gaming bit. The weight and command of such a gorgeous display can only be complemented by a ring that is slightly understated yet intricate and fully realized in character like the one shown here. Both pieces are available at Saks Fifth Avenue.
