Nothing wakes up a jewelry wardrobe like a new ring — especially one of the delicious candy-colored gemstone rings so popular for spring. Available in pastels, jewel tones and everything in between, these precious and semiprecious beauties can be found at many price points. Here are a few of my favorites:
The Picnic Ring by A & Furst
My all-time candy crush is the Picnic Ring by A & Furst, an example of the very finest Italian jewelry. Third-generation jewelers Carlo Antonini and his wife Kiki Furst moved from Milan to Napa Valley to form a new jewelry studio in 2008. They create sophisticated jewelry that reflects their international lifestyle — still made in Italy and marked by elegance and taste. Available at Dorfman Jewelers, Boston. Prices on request.

The Nudo Petit by Pomellato
