Octavia is a younger designer on the scene—a rising star that I love and mentor. I love carrying a female bench jeweler in the Vault! She makes all of her own pieces in 18k gold with her signature fine hammered finish. Her pieces have a fresh, young, modern vibe, with outstanding workmanship and a finish that appeals to the understated jewelry aficionado. K.J.
Parachute Bracelets have these little diamonds, bezel-set in gold, strung on a beautiful silk cord that you can wear on your wrist and never take off. They’re great for gifts and self-purchases. The silk cord comes in all different color ways: red, white, baby pink, blue, olive green, orange, and navy. My favorite is navy, it’s very Nantucket-chic. K.J.
