The ingredients stay the same, but there’s always that fashionable twist, like the cake pop. In fine jewelry, it’s rough-cut diamonds and sliced gems that shine this season, along with modern updates to classic pearls and the return of rose gold. Try one new look or indulge in a few. They’re decidedly decadent, but calorie free.
