Map-Inspired Jewelry Offers a Beautifully Subtle Way to Honor Your Favorite Cities

Jewelry has the power to evoke a special memory or feeling just by looking at it. Exquisite architectural rings, for instance, allow us to emotionally escape to faraway, awe-inspiring sites. In the same vein, artisan Talia Sari Wiener has created necklaces and rings shaped like maps for her collection You Are Here. She translates the intricate connections of city streets into sleek, minimalist designs that display the gridded essence of bustling metropolises like New York City, Paris, and London.

The beauty of Wiener’s pieces lie in their subtleties. You can wear them knowing what these geometric pieces symbolize and its importance to you, while other people—not privy to the format—will appreciate them as simply gorgeous abstract patterns. Each necklace and ring is available as 24K gold plating or silver plating to complement your unique taste.

Winer sells her statement-making maps through her Etsy shop, TaliaSari Jewelry.
