A Whimsical Jewel

The Italian jewelry brand Prediletto, whose name means “favorite,” creates playful jeweled gifts—literally—such as a pink bow ring made up of 170 rubies ($8,600); a ring in the shape of a gift box covered in 392 white diamonds and a ruby bow ($36,000); and a gold-and-diamond gift-box pendant necklace that opens to reveal a nearly 12-carat amethyst inside ($20,500).
