See this gorgeous assymetrical amethyst necklace? It was crafted by the ever-Crushable Kim Rittberg, who balances designing her namesake jewelry collection with her day job as a TV producer who recently traveled through the sometimes-seedy landscapes of Peru in search of Joran Van der Sloot. Terrifying, right? Kim loves traveling to far-flung locales, and during a bout of post-college globetrotting, she was inspired to build on her longtime jewelry-making hobby. The result: k ritt jewelry, a collection of statement pieces that ensure “you’re never just a faced in the crowd.” The necklace above, which retails at $190, has been sold at Henri Bendel in New York City, and various arty boutiques.
“I try to make things that I think no one else has seen,” says Kim, who seeks inspiration from museums, describes her style as “artistic and funky.”
We’ll second that emotion. More sweet styles via Kim, below:
