Just the thought of getting on a plane has you reaching for the Xanax (and a good glass of wine).
Luckily, you can soar with your feet firmly on the ground, thanks to Volare Jewelry, a new line of rings, earrings, necklaces, and bracelets inspired by Ottoman and European history and art.
Handmade by Turkish-born Aygul Caner (who has since lived in Italy, D.C., and New Jersey), the metal pieces are versatile and dramatic without being overwhelming.
A necklace with rustic charms asymmetrically strung on colored leather cord looks just as good with a T-shirt as a tailored jacket. A cuff of solid gold rectangles will give some heft to this season’s floaty frocks, while earrings with cascades of shimmery coins are an instant dose of boho.
It’s enough to make you want to broadcast it around the world.
Though for you, that could very well be just another flight of fancy.
Available at Nido, 1425 Wisconsin Avenue NW, between P and O Streets (202-333-5445).
