Italian jewelry line Cantamessa has arrived on American shores just in time for the Fourth of July, which is convenient because so many of their pieces happen to resemble fireworks. The brand's signature style involves flamboyant use of color and clever moving parts: Those round puffball rings above jiggle when you move your fingers, while the necklaces have hinges that let them shift with your body. Much like real fireworks, though, these are probably best admired from afar: Pricing starts at $10,000 and gets high enough to rival what you'd spend on a studio apartment.
