The exotic has always been prized—not just for its rarity, but for the dreams it inspires. Designers cross cultural boundaries in the quest for a fragment of that dream, and the creative results of their discoveries can be found lighting up the haute couture event of the jewelry arena: World Jewelry Facets, June 11–25, 2015, in Shanghai. From outrageously gorgeous, stop-and-stare one-offs, to the most wearable on-trend pieces, they include Berber cuffs, regal statement collars and old-world beaded embroidery, bringing the globe to your neckline and fingertips. Contemporary jewelry gurus update traditional styles for a gypsy jet-set look that says in all languages, "This is a woman of the world."
