Must Haves

Complete Transparency. Designed by Josef Hoffmann between 1910 and 1914 and produced by Lobmeyr, these mouth-blown hand-cut crystal goblets were first shown at the 1914 Werkbund exhibition in Cologne. Four of the magnificent designs, Stufenschliff, Wurfelschliff, Fleckerlschliff and a champagne coupe are available, individually, from Adeeni Design Galerie. Prices range from $1,605 to $3,160 per goblet.

Green with Envy. Jade is known culturally for many things –including good luck and its healing properties— and has long been admired for its variation in color, intensity and beauty. Visit Shreve & Co.’s San Francisco outpost to see this art deco-inspired necklace from Eclat Jewels. Seventy-four jadeite beads along two strands, totaling 686.41 carats and connected by a 3.65 carat diamond clasp are definitely good for your health. Price upon request.

Beauty in Bloom. Award-winning ecoflorist Armando de Loera of Rose and Thorn Design has been exhibited everywhere from the de Young to Saks Fifth Avenue. His fanciful bouquets and centerpieces are as architecturally stunning as they are fragrant. His work will be featured this month at the Green Business Expo at the Academy of Sciences on March 13.

The Wallflower. Arguably one of the most important living artists to come out of New York’s “New Image” movement in the 1970s, Donald Sultan continues to produce monumental mixed-media works, such as Orange Button December 17, 2015, in enamel, flock, and oil on Masonite, 72 by 72 inches. Sultan’s masterpieces are in all the major museum collections, but this one from Serge Sorokko Gallery can be yours for somewhere in the neighborhood of $100,000.

Like Clockwork. As part of its new Les Galaxies de Cartier collection, the iconic French luxury brand is exploring the cosmos and defying the laws of jewelry by building on new materials and on unprecedented visual, tactile and sound sensations. It’s also included a clock in 18k white gold, diamonds, rock crystal, labradorite, rutile quarts and pyrite jade. Handcrafted in a limited edition of three numbered pieces, it’s available by appointment only at select Cartier boutiques. Price upon request.
