Your words may be telling clients that you're a conservative money manager, but that chunky brass-and-silver bracelet may reveal a wilder side of you. Or that string of pearls or black leather-strap watch may say you're less imaginative than you would like to appear.

A Kerchief That Conquers Hermes celebrates the 500th anniversary of Columbus' voyage with . . . a scarf. That's right, a high twill silk scarf featuring the Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria goes for $225.

"It has the look of the '30s, yet at the same time it's very futuristic" is how Tiffany & Co. spokeswoman Jo Ellen Qualls describes the recently debuted Streamerica Collection.
