Greatest Hits

Boxing icon Muhammad Ali is the inspiration for a new men’s jewelry collection that pays homage to one of the greatest athletes of all time. New York City–based Twenty Three 9 Design’s licensed line in sterling silver with CZ features three subcollections focused on the champ’s inspirational quotes, signature, and portrait. (There’s also a fourth line in 14k gold and diamonds.) Buy-in starts at $3,500, and a portion of proceeds benefits the Muhammad Ali Center.

Facets mismatched earrings in oxidized silver and 18k gold with 7.63 cts. t.w. green beryl and 0.5 ct. t.w. diamonds, $3,600, elizabethgarvin.com

Elizabeth Garvin’s chic geometric shapes come alive in silver with 18k gold accents and dustings of diamonds. The artist marries various two-tone effects in metal with geometric shapes inspired by industrial design and architecture. What’s more, her fine jewelry styles are sturdy—in contrast with most lighter-weight silver styles on the market today.

“Silver fashion, such as oxidized sterling silver with 24 karat gold and big gemstones from Lika Behar, sells well for us.”
