DRIPPING IN TRENDS: This Kenneth Jay Lane Pyramid Bracelet crafted from black and white enamel is so smokin', it was even cool enough to use in "Sex and the City." That Carrie Bradshaw; always establishing the trends. $100. Available at Samantha Chicago; 64 E. Walton St; 312.951.5383 or online at www.samanthachicago.com
MIXED BREED: Organic jewelry that combines Italian and Asian design make the newely opened Tzen in Northbrook (2126 Court Dr) well worth a little drive. We especially like her "Wrapped in Gold" collection of drop necklaces, and we can't help but bat our eyes at everything in her couture collection, Mia Pezzi; especially this Incantato ring with diamond-encrusted petals.
