One of my favorite parts of the shop is the vintage jewelry section. I love fantasizing about who might have worn each piece – the ceremonies it commemorated, the parties it attended, how many times it was passed down to heirs before ending up in ESQUELETO’s collection.

One of the beautiful things about fine jewelry is its enduring nature. This week I speculated about which contemporary pieces might end up as timeless treasures many years down the road. Here I’ve gathered ten items that stand out, because of their unique designs and beautiful materials, as those super special future heirlooms.
