Repossi / Royal Order

I've never wanted to be a princess but this is making me rethink my position. While this oxidized gold stunner might look like something from a hot young designer in New York, it's actually from the 90-year-old company that's the official jeweller to the Sovereign Prince of Monaco. Gaia Repossi, great-granddaughter of the founder of Maison Repossi, now serves as its artistic director; the ring above was created in collaboration with designer Alexander Wang for his A/W 2010/11 show.

Above, multi-band ring from her collaboration with another fashion designer, Joseph Altuzarra, and pieces from the "Maure" and "Nérée" collections.

Bettina Nissen / Punk Bunny Designs

In the words of UK-based designer Bettina Nissen, her "Make A Wish" ring "interprets the moment of happiness when blowing out the candles on a cake. The iconic birthday cake candleholder is transformed into a piece of jewelry that serves as a keepsake of a special day. Buried in a cake as surprise or presented in its beautiful packaging, 'Make A Wish' will turn anyone's birthday into a memorable event." And don't worry, your ring won't melt away — they're actually made of 3D-printed metal or nylon.
