Jungle Love

Roll up your khaki sleeves, practice your bird calls, and get your cameras out.

You’re about to embark on a safari to the depths of Maren & Ruby, the new line of nature-inspired jewelry from designer Rachel Shapiro. The baubles incorporate earth elements like bone, wood, and semiprecious stones for a look that’s jungle ready yet tame enough for frequent wear.

To your right, you’ll see edgy, brown leather-wrapped wood bangles, perfect for stacking. Up ahead, glimpse the tooth pendant dangling from delicate, multilayered gold chains. And you don’t need binoculars to see the necklace strewn with dyed bone rings and moukite jasper beads.

Archaeologists predict these lightweight pieces will be worn day and night, its wearers fielding compliments from every direction.

And fighting off a slew of mating calls.
