    Seasonal trends come and go, but true investment pieces last a lifetime. Want to add a new jewelry gem to your collection that's seriously worth every penny? Just check out the L.A.-based line Mannin, and you'll agree this is a label poised to be on your radar for some time to come. Founded by designer Suzanne Donegan back in 2006, this line of insanely elegant, handcrafted jewelry is not only made from recycled18-karat or rose gold, but almost every style is completely customizable—and we're obsessed with her new collection of future-heirlooms. Whether you prefer a Florentine artisan surface or a shiny finish on your pinky ring, a guard hook or a safety chain on a recycled Elliptical Hinge Bracelet, or Roman lettering vs. Art Deco initials, you’ll be getting exactly what you want. And though nothing is so precious you can’t wear it everyday, we believe that Mannin's fine collection is setting the gold standard for heirloom jewelry. These are pieces you’ll cherish forever.

    Mannin is available at Jenni Kayne, 616 North Almont Drive (at Santa Monica Boulevard); 310-860-0123.
