Meet AGMES, the understated NYC-based brand that's quietly blowing up the jewelry scene right now. Created by sisters Jaclyn and Morgan Solomon, AGMES is the epitome of bold, simplistic beauty dosed with a whole lot of class, and if I could wear every piece in their collection, I would. But right now, my obsession lies with the Open Block Ring (in gold or silver). Handmade in NYC from precious metals and clearly inspired by the architecture, art and scapes of the city of its creation, the Open Block Ring is a geometric piece with clean lines and works as the perfect balance of strong, feminine beauty.

About ten years ago, I was on a train leaving New York City when I got a call on my cell phone. “Hello,” the caller said. “Is this Michael Cunningham?” “It is.” “This is David Bowie. I hope I’m not calling at an inconvenient time.” “Whoever you are,” I said, “this is a really cruel joke.” It was surely the work of a friend, I thought—someone close enough to know that I’d listened to Ziggy Stardust and Diamond Dogs approximately 10,000 times each when I was in college and that still, with college far, far behind me, I listened to Bowie at least once a week. That person might even know about my youthful attempts to look like David Bowie, which I maintained even though a pale, skinny kid walking the streets of Pasadena, California, in a bad (very bad) red dye job and a Ziggy Stardust T-shirt did not seem to read “rock star” to anyone but me. The prankster who was calling me, pretending to be Bowie, might have known that I’d been, essentially, waiting for that call for almost 35 years.
