Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: Bakelite was one of the first synthetic plastics, used originally for industrial purposes and later for household items, toys, and jewelry. Its modern-day vintage appeal is due to the material's limited use today because of the labor required to create and manipulate it. This Beth Church ring features a jet black Bakelite button cut to suit her trademark tough look with a leather bow at the base and topped with rhinestones.

Where: Beth Church Jewelry

Cost: $128

Style It:

Give the dark, goth-infused ring some contrasting colors and texture with a draped Isabel Marant dress in grayscale devoré-velvet with flecks of baby pink. Highlight that visual softness with a textured leather Chloé purse in coral pink. Finish off the lady-punk look with metallic leather wingtips from Marni and The Row's cat-eye sunglasses in clear acetate.
