Evan Yurman, the trailblazing chief design director for David Yurman, has created a collectible bottle stopper for Patrón Añejo tequila that reflects his edgy design aesthetic, which often pairs metals of different colors and textures with unexpected minerals and gems. Similar in style to his men’s jewelry, Yurman has forged a two-tone cast-metal sword bottle stopper that is plated in contrasting deep-gray gunmetal and 24-karat gold. It is carved with patterns inspired by 18th-century Japanese samurai swords. The bottle stopper comes in a limited-edition holiday gift box for $60. (www.patronspirits.com)
