Jewelry to Celebrate the Great American Solar Eclipse



Have you been swept up by eclipse mania? I momentarily considered a last-minute drive up the West coast to catch today’s total solar eclipse in Oregon. But when I learned that we’d see the moon obscure about 62 percent of the sun’s surface in Los Angeles, I decided that was good enough!

If you’re in New York City, here are some great tips on where to watch the moon swallow the sun. If you’re in LA, the eclipse will have already happened by the time you read this. Here are some fun tips anyway. Elsewhere in the country, consult the experts at NASA.

Most important: Get eclipse viewing glasses! You may have heard that Warby Parker, the hip eyewear chain, gave away thousands of free glasses last week. My local boutique ran out last Tuesday, I’m told, so I made my own pinhole camera, courtesy of NASA—just follow these simple instructions.

After the eclipse hoopla settles down, consider these on-point jewels to keep the cosmic vibe going:
