2016 Best Jewelry, Everyday

Alexis Bittar

Finding that perfect piece of jewelry is kind of like finding a soul mate: You want it to be the ideal everyday companion, but also give you a boost when needed. Thankfully, we’ve fallen head over heels for Alexis Bittar’s trove of baubles, displayed like museum pieces in the elegant Newbury Street store. The brand’s irreverent cool-girl knack for design translates to trendy Lucite cuffs, edgy spiked ear climbers, and statement necklaces that work just as well for a client meeting as they do for a night on the town.
