For Caribbean designer Luiny Rivera, an eye for bold shapes and eclectic details has always come naturally. “I created one of a kind pieces made out of broken jewelry and I started to sell them on the university campus,” she recalls. The positive response from her peers lead her to pursue jewelry full-time, moving to New York and launching the brand Luiny.

My ring arrived the day before I left for a 5-day camping/canoeing trip and I was so bewitched by it that I put it on and wore it the whole time--I have worn this ring continuously for 3 weeks. I've sat in the river for hours while wearing it, I've even showered in it every day (once I got back home from aforementioned camping trip). Its iridescence is eye-catching and gorgeous and both the brass and the abalone are still shiny.
