UD - Elizabeth and James Serpentine Earrings

Elizabeth and James Serpentine Earrings

From afar, these look like long, dangly gold earrings. But up close, you’ll see that the design is actually a snakeskin cutout. Giving these should get you to that up-close vantage point.

$450, available at Wilkes Bashford, 375 Sutter St (at Stockton), 415-986-4380

UD - Shark-Tooth iPhone Case

Shark-Tooth iPhone Case

$125, available at Paul Smith, 50 Geary St (near Grant), 415-352-3520

UD - Vintage-Inspired Baseball

Vintage-Inspired Baseball

Ah, the World Series. It was awesome, it was classic, it was... not played with an old-timey ball. Still, this hand-stitched leather number should be a good reminder of the Giants’ World Series victory. Maybe don’t actually play catch with it.

$38, available at Unionmade, 493 Sanchez St (at 18th), 415-861-3373

UD - Sightglass Coffee Subscription

Sightglass Coffee Subscription

UD - Vintage Rolexes at Taylor Stitch

Vintage Rolexes at Taylor Stitch
