Black and White All Over
Third-generation Turkish jewelry brand Own Your Story only recently began distributing in the United States and Canada. Among its most sophisticated collections (now available stateside!) is the Linear series—accessibly priced 14k gold and diamond pieces that explore the endless possibilities of a simple line form. Its necklaces, rings, bracelets, and earrings are thin in proportion but long on drama: The basic diamond bar necklace gets a gentle arc and a pear-shape diamond offset to one side, while standard hoop earrings are elevated with the addition of diamond-studded slashes. In jewelry design, the devil’s in the details—and this collection nails them.
