Local photographer and jewelry designer Monica Ruzansky studied metalsmithing in Mexico and Brooklyn before launching her AILI line, incorporating recycled metals and turquoise. Though the mineral can evoke visions of clunky boho baubles, Ruzansky’s cleanly designed collection is minimalist and understated. The rings, earrings, and necklaces feature tiny drops of turquoise interspersed in simple bands or geometric studs. Opt for recycled sterling or a warm fourteen-karat-gold base.
