Dr.Jart+ hosted its first US pop-up shop in NYC on Thursday, Nov. 13 to celebrate the brands 10-year anniversary.

To say the exhibition was awe inspiring doesn’t even begin to do the collections justice, but hopefully the pictures help illustrate our point.
Here 8 of our favorite designers that we’re on display and our top picks from their collection:
1. There’s something very Thor about these whimsical wing rings by H Stern
2. Personalized writing on your gold jewelry a la Aurora Lopez Mejia
3. Elegance meets art with these dainty floral earrings by Carla Amorim
4. Intricate antiqe-like rings by Catherine Michiels
