Xiao Wang

We'll admit it: we're a little jealous of Xiao Wang. Forget about the fact that she's a stunning, accomplished actress, model and designer. And that she's able to somehow put together the most dreamy, unexpected jewels from what could be seen as random combinations of precious colored gems and diamonds. What's really making us green with envy is her forthcoming signature scent: Look out Britney and JLo! 

My fave piece from last year is the big Galaxy ring, it took me over 7 years for all the natural diamonds that are set in it.
