"D aniela Villegas is a young jewelry designer who has been around for three or four years; we started carrying her collection a while back. Each season she keeps getting more whimsical and playful, and she really focuses on her gems—simply rare finds in terms of a great earring or a beautiful necklace or an incredible bracelet. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, so even if she makes the same ring, she'll use different stones with it or a different fabrication, so that each piece is different. Celebrities love her, clients love her, everybody loves her. (One of her clients is Salma Hayek, who also happens to be her sister-inlaw.) Some of her pieces are asymmetrical: One earring might be a fish and the other would be the water; one earring might be a diamond, another would be a feather. I came across her collection at Paris Fashion Week, and she had the most unbelievable installation—you felt like you were in a garden with literally hidden gems in each pot. The piece of hers that I'm loving right now is a divine centipede necklace. It literally moves with the mood, crawling up and down the neck. It really feels alive, and I love the way it feels around my neck. It's diamonds and rose gold, which is something that I don't normally wear, but with this I made an exception because it's so warm and so beautiful." Daniela Villegas jewelry is available at Ikram, 15 E. Huron St., 312-587-1000; MA Centipede necklace in 18k rose gold with white and champagne diamonds and ruby eyes, Daniela Villegas ($12,500).
