    Sarah Besnainou believes that jewelry, like love, is eternal. The Parisian designer’s brand, Eternamé (www.neapolitanonline.com), which means "make me eternal" in Greek, comprises colorful, bold designs that indeed impart a lasting quality. Unveiled in February at Chicago’s Neapolitan Collection, the designer’s new line (priced from $750 to about $50,000) includes a striking wood cuff adorned with diamonds and a bright 22-carat green beryl, as well as a yellow-gold-and-amethyst cuff with 261 carats of stones. All of the pieces are handmade in Parisian ateliers.
