SINGULAR SENSATION Vice Squad

If you're naughty and you know, it, clap your hands. Stephen Webster's wicked Seven Deadly Sins pendants—Envy, Greed, Sloth, Gluttony, Lust, Wrath and Pride—are rendered in sterling silver, with a rainbow of Swarovski crystals and accents of 18K gold plate or black or white rhodium. As for the inspiration behind the bejeweled bijoux of bad behavior, the Hollywood-beloved Englishman says, "We're not a dark and morbid bunch. I see these as a combination of British wit and the dark side," he says with a laugh. "Good Gothic as opposed to bad Gothic." The wages of sin? In this case, $850 each. stephenwebster.com.  —Nancie Clare
