For a truly bespoke moment of luxury that speaks directly to your own journeys, customize a Solid Gold Passport Book Charm from Jet Set Candy. Equally suited for a bracelet or pendent necklace, you can add up to 12 passport stamps from your travels to the four interior pages of this miniature passport, and you’re welcome to add a personal message on the back cover. Leave your passport purely in gleaming gold or have your cover and stamps colorfully enameled to personalize your piece further. You’ll receive a design proof of your custom passport before fabrication to ensure it tells your travel tales exactly as you imagined. From $1,998.


Ileana Makri draws inspiration from her travels by studying the cultural symbols she encounters on her journeys and using or adapting them in her fine jewelry designs. Bring a touch of Tibetan spirituality to your wardrobe with the Globetrotter Necklace, featuring nearly 32 inches of Tibetan brown agate stripe beads punctuated by semi-precious gems; 18K gold beads; and sterling silver beads dressed in enamel and deco- rated with diamonds, sapphires and more. Whether your style is more old-world mystique or contemporary chic, this design, like many from Ileana Makri, evokes both. $2,302.


Designer Lauren Harwell Godfrey adds her modern interpretation to the surviving symbols of Ancient Egypt with her luxury collection, Cleopatra’s Vault. Incorporating her signature triangles to represent millennia- old pyramids, the Cleopatra’s Eye Pendant Necklace is available in four stone and inlay combinations including light mother of pearl + amethyst, turquoise + citrine, and lapis + tanzanite (pictured). Surrounded by 18K gold and diamonds on a 16-inch chain, each emanates the sense of royalty, intrigue and strength that followed the Egyptian queen’s reputation through history. $6,050.


Mona Assemi’s Iranian-inspired designs frequently feature homages to her Persian heritage. Her current collection of gold earrings utilizes turquoise stones and mobarak bad coins she imports from Iran to help bring awareness to the recent women-led protests in the nation. The coins symbolize joy, prosperity and light, and have traditionally been tossed at weddings for centuries to congratulate and uplift new couples. Assemi follows a zero-waste model to create all of her elegant pieces, subtly inspiring hope and positivity for — and from — this ancient region. From $388.

Homer and Janet by Homer Review

The Marais District, covering swaths of Paris’ 3rd and 4th arrondissments, has a distinctively gritty glamour that reveals it to be one of the city’s great incubators for new French food, fashion and lifestyle trends. It is here Moïse Sfez took on the challenge of creating street food establishments Homer in 2017 and Janet by Homer in 2022, doing it in such a way they both transcend the novelty of being regional American comfort food offered at stylized lunch counters matching up with New England lobster shacks and New York delis. Overwhelming local response and Sfez winning the 2018 Lobster Roll World’s Championship title in Portland, Maine, solidified him as a Paris restaurateur and one of France’s hottest culinary stars.
