There are times when you cannot beat a classic. Some items are so wonderfully iconic that every type of woman I know—from the incurable romantic to the streamlined minimalist, would love to own them. A Cartier trinity bracelet, Manolo Blahnik mules in deep blue suede, or a Tiffany men’s signet ring which you can have monogrammed (Tiffany engravers are among the best, it is worth the extra money), are a few standouts. My favorite pieces of jewelry, accessories and clothes always end up being those have-forever items. I never tire of them, I never regret splurging on them, or especially, receiving them as gifts.
