MONKEYING AROUND: People who are born during the Chinese Year of the Monkey are said to be clever, innovative and lively — also an apt description of these baubles, designed — in many cases — with the Feb. 8 celebration in mind. Designers interpret the curious animal on a variety of pieces such as a pavè brooch from Tiffany, green onyx-and-gold earrings from David Webb, or a watch face from Jaquet Droz that features a tree-climbing monkey. You’ll have the rest of 2016 to ponder these delightful gems; after that, it will be 2028 before you’ll see these cheeky creatures adorn jewelry in such abundance.
