Why It’s TZR-Approved: Both functional and fanciful, this four-piece coaster set will likely become a happy hour staple.
A Modern Pearl Ring
Pearls are trendier than ever (just ask Vice President Kamala Harris) and the furthest thing from ‘stuffy.’ Take for instance this gilded ring. Made in NYC, the 16-karat gold plated brass ring features a gum-ball faux pearl encircled in a wide hoop with ample negative space for a fresh-feel style.

A Regency-Core Candle
While the world awaits the arrival of Bridgerton season two, the über-stylish have been stocking up on fashion pieces and home decor inspired by the aesthetic design of the Netflix series.

Some Subtle Studs
This pair of earrings is destined to become their newest signature piece, thanks to a low-key size and unfussy details that’ll complement any outfit they own.
