Unique, artisan, and fine jewelry collections from designers such as Becky Kelso, Dana Kellin, Mischa Marie, Catherine Weitzman, Grace Chan, Emma Jane & Tan, and Pade Vavra are layered in stately glass cases set against a blue wall at Lunessa. There’s also work by Perelman, who opened the shop in 2005.
Perelman’s Lunessa treasures are inspired by nature, the ethereal, the Art Nouveau and Romantic art periods, feminine beauty, a love for color and balance, and the catch Willie Mays made in Game 1 of the 1954 World Series. Find your engagement or wedding ring at Lunessa, which can customize pieces to suit any occasion, from having tea with the king of a foreign land to usurping his throne via expertise in swordplay.
Give this Groupon to future brides and grooms or to any female friend who likes her digits to shine. Lunessa’s friendly staff can help anyone navigate the silver and emerald seas to find a sparkling treasure suiting any appendage—big or small or medium or small-medium or extra-large or semi-medium.

A Brief History of Jewelry
Jewelry, like oil or R&B music, is a precious natural resource with finite reserves. Most modern jewelry is a refined derivative of a more raw material called treasure, usually recovered deep within haunted mines or inside the bellies of dragons. Treasure has had many other uses over the centuries:
- The Katawak Tribe of North Antarctica used shiny treasure piles to trap the sunlight during the day so they might study their sacred texts by night.
- Rounders, the British precursor to modern baseball, was played by thwacking a small canvas pouch with a sapphire encrusted scepter.
- Modern rappers attach treasure to their clothes, cars, and even their own bodies in order to demonstrate status within their social groups, frighten off potential challengers, and attract a boo.
- To this day, businesses in the Icelandic capital, Reykjavik, only accept payment in the form of Crystal Skulls.
