But nothing beats the Grecian- and Roman-inspired emerald wreath necklace offered by the Great Hall Luxury Boutique in New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art ($38,500; metmuseum.org). It practically belongs in a museum.

  • The Editor’s Desk

    Skepticism—not cynicism, but a healthy wariness—is a reasonable reaction when you hear journalists engage in hyperbolitis ("more than ever before" is a good signal phrase of the affliction). Sometimes, though, a superlative is empirically justified. There are such things as genuine firsts, and the prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency would be just that: an authentically unprecedented event in American history.While this is our third annual cover focused on Women & Leadership, the issue you are reading has a special resonance in the context of the Clinton campaign. We have long struggled with whether discussing "women and leadership" is anachronistic. (We would probably not, for instance, undertake a series on "Men & Leadership.") Our reporting has consistently shown, however, that many women at the highest levels of political, corporate, professional and academic life have unique stories to tell, lessons to teach and issues to face that raise questions about the nature...

Now an assistant professor at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in New York, Hernandez supervises the treatment of traumatized children, with a special research focus on short-term family-based therapy. Her proudest achievement is a program to prevent abused girls from sexually acting out. Hernandez answered your questions about child sexual abuse during a Live Talk on Thursday, Oct. 4. ...
