    There are a whole lot of eye-catching things floating around L.A.’s fashion scene that have our tails wagging of late, and local jewelry designers are certainly contributing to a large portion of that. Every time we spot one of the accessory industry's elite at an event, they’re bedecked in pieces so posh it’s enough to spark an Entrapment-style heist!

    Well, enough admiring from afar. We cut to the chase and asked 13 of L.A.’s most creative ladies to pop open their jewelry boxes for an intimate glimpse of what’s floating their bauble boats.

Whether it’s a family heirloom, an Hermès cuff, or Silly Bandz, these gals take their trinkets seriously. Ready to swoon? Take our tour and you’ll see that these gem dens are anything but square. (And if anything's missing, we swear it wasn’t us.)
