Globetrotting for business or pleasure should be as glamorous as it ever was, even if for safety's sake today we leave our family heirloom diamonds at home. What to wear, then? Jet Set Jewels.

Inspired by the classic designs from Europe, today's costume and travel jewelry, new and vintage, is being created and curated by some of Manhattan's most elegant artisans and influencers. Rather than priceless materials, their focus is on style. When it's time for wheel's up, look your best with these gems from around the city.
