grand bazaar, grand ring
The Gaia Repossi rings for Zadig & Voltaire are pretty cool. But can I say that I think the ring I picked up last year at the covered bazaar in Istanbul is even better? And it was most certainly less than the $320 they're charging for this one.
I realize this is basically a gloating post, because I can hardly guarantee you'd be able to find this ring even if you made the trip to Istanbul tomorrow. But you'd probably find some other wonderful gem. And I guess what I'm saying is, shop online, yes, shop at net-a-porter, of course, but also hunt for treasures in unexpected, personal, out of the way places; both the booty and the process of finding it are often infinitely more rewarding.
