I've been a fan of Tournaire's "Architectural" collection since seeing some of the pieces at last year's Couture show. The attention to detail is amazing, and so too is the idea of keeping close a likeness of your favorite city or even your home.

The handcrafted pieces in gold and platinum are quite covetable but they also command couture-level prices, so I was excited to hear that the brand is now making pieces in sterling silver, with prices starting under $1,500. Here's sneak peak below of the "Village Fortifie" ring featuring gemstones such as amethyst, topaz and rhodolite (click on the photos for a larger view).

If you're attending the upcoming Couture show, you'll get a chance to
see the pieces in person. For more from Tournaire, including the brand's
