What: Unbashful, eye-catching, gold-plated geode, agate, and quartz necklaces and rocky, double-finger cocktail rings ($125-$525) strike a balance between Mother Earth and mother Joan Collins.
Why: Geology rocks.
Where: Online at jasminepennamma.myshopify.com.
What: A new blog that roots out exceptionally well-designed vacation homes to rent, hotels, inns, and more from California to Tuscany. Pictures plus detailed descriptions lay out the truth for you.
Why: Never again, “charming summer beach rental” that was the size of a walnut and had moldy cots. Never again.

Sock of the Month Club
What: Starting with September, Hansel from Basel is featuring (heavily discounting) one special pair each month. Kicking things off: white knee-highs ($8) with black printed majorette frills running up the front.
Why: Let’s make an always-wear-clean-socks pact and seal it with a high five.
Where: Online at hanselfrombasel.com.
What: You’ve seen the bespoke wallpaper, now see the Brooklyn designer’s ceramic drinking vessels ($40) with impressionistic renderings of bear families and Indian rock art-esque patterns.
Why: They’ll tumble for you.
Where: Online at eskayel.com.
What: Industrial black-, bronze-, gold-, or silver-finished digital wristwatches ($45) with squared-off faces and plenty of bells and whistles (turquoise button, water resistant, alarm, backlight).
Why: Dainty be damned; a masculine watch is the best way to go.
