FrontRunners: Cuff Love

    "What better way to accessorize a crisp white shirt than with a pair of enchanting cuff links," says Hong Kong jewelry designer Michelle Ong, whose men’s cuff link collection for Carnet (www.carnetjewellery.com) includes a pair shaped like hazelnuts and set with colored diamonds (pictured). Greek mythology and colorful, rare gemstones inspired Ong’s series, which debuted in December and is priced from $11,000 per pair. All of the cuff links and studs are handcrafted in Carnet’s Hong Kong atelier, and most of them are one-of-a-kind creations.
