Timber Land: Jewelry to Help You Live the Wood Life



Between shoes, clutches, and now jewels, we’re developing a bit of a pulp addiction. Wood is back in fine jewelry after a too-lengthy hiatus, as designers rediscover its rich hues, fascinating grain patterns, and sturdy nature—ideal for carving and for setting gemstones. Looking for a warm and bohemian accessory? Consider wood a solid choice.
