Anna Karina in Godard’s French New-Wave film ‘A Woman is a Woman.’ Seventeenth-century verse penned by French poet Jean Racine. American West Coast jazz sounds crafted by trumpeter Chet Baker. These are only some of the cultural influences that inspire the whimsical jewelry designed by Anna Rivka, whose eponymous shop sells darling accessories for women with an eclectic, elegant fashion sensibility.
With a design pallet drawn from styles spanning the decades from the 1920’s-1950’s, Anna Rivka’s collection brings together retro-futuristic period-patterning with a contemporary flair for breezy, effortless wear. Her most remarkable pieces are the sterling-silver and gold head pieces bedecked with semi-precious stones, which have the effect of marking its wearer with a fierce, princess-like air.
