Fine jewelry designer Katrina Kelly has clearly been pondering the profundity of infatuation and the necessary elements for long-lasting love. Forget there being seven deadly sins —if we look at enough religious, mythical and mystical texts, we'll find attributes like wisdom, mental acuity, luck, artistry, and intuition associated with this digit. In fact, many ancient civilizations have interpreted the number as sacred or magical. It follows, then, that someone would use the number seven to examine a subject as complex and truly divine as love.
Katrina Kelly's new "7 Layers of Love" rings consists of a septet of jeweled bands that can be worn individually or stacked atop one another, with each piece symbolizing a different aspect of this romantic sentiment: Luck (since chance often plays a role in finding that special someone), Light (since love can make you feel enlightened and joyous), Laughter (what relationship can survive without some humor?), Lover (passion informs romantic love, after all), Loyalty (trust cannot exist without it), Love (an emotion that can't be scientifically explained), and Life (since true love lasts a lifetime).
I'll say "hello, lover" to these rings any day! By: Celia from sicka than average

This cafe is housed in the German-Austrian art museum Neue Galerie. Not only does this historic Beaux-Arts mansion house some of my favorite works of art and decorative objects, the cafe is unsurpassed in Manhattan. This entire setting is my notion of elegant beauty. I usually go for brunch there with my dear Austrian friend. Her family runs an Austrian bakery and confectionery in the charming town of Weiz, Austria (in which I have had the delight and pleasure of tasting some of their chocolate! YUM). She states that Cafe Sabarsky is the most authentic Austrian setting in the city. So if it wins the heart of my Authentic Austrian friend, then it is certainly worthy! It evokes a real Viennese Glamour and an Old World splendor. I am ready to go back for more visual inspiration!
