This whisper of a necklace is the daintiest piece of jewelry we've ever seen. A tiny faceted white diamond teardrop, prong-set in gleaming 14 karat yellow gold, hangs from a 1 1/2" drop chain, affixed to a feather-light 16" chain in 14 karat yellow gold. The diamond pendant measures roughly 1/8" by 1/8." Once you put this delicate beauty on, you'll never want to take it off.

Aili Jewelry is handmade in Brooklyn by artist Monica Ruzansky. "Aili" is a Gaelic word meaning "light," which is fitting, as Ruzansky also makes a living as a professional photographer, exploring the fascinating properties of light and shadow with her lens. With her jewelry line, the artist has found another way to perceive and manipulate light; her ethereal, barely-there 18 karat gold creations glimmer and sparkle, subtly reacting to and reflecting off the wearer. All of the metals in the Aili line are recycled and sourced from ethically responsible companies.
