Hope’s Top Ten Essential Pieces of Jewelry for Every Woman: Bracelet
A bracelet can be simple and still be stunning; bracelets can also be extravagant and entirely elegant. No matter what your personal style — classic lady, minimalist, or bohemian — there’s a bracelet out there that’s right for you. And so I introduce number four on Hope’s Top Ten Essential Pieces of Jewelry for Every Woman —
Because I classify bejeweled cuffs in the bracelet category, behold my choices for three completely eye-catching accoutrements, priced high to low, as I know you’ve come to appreciate.
- Emilio Pucci plexiglass and crystal cuff: Can Pucci do no wrong? Even now that Peter Dundas is at the helm, the iconic fashion house is still producing designs that make bold statements. Check this pink cuff, highlighted by magenta crystals. ($990, Net-A-Porter)
- Alexis Bittar crystal encrusted aster bracelet: Starting out in the vintage jewelry field, Alexis Bittar eventually began designing his own jewelry, and even worked with Patricia Fields on Sex and the City. This crystal encrusted bracelet is both dainty and daring, and would add a delicate complement to whatever you happen to be wearing. PS the hinged closure with magnetic clasp means easy on and off. ($275, Shopbop)
- J.Crew classic thin bangle: Layer and layer, and layer some more! J.Crew’s classic thin bangle is a must-have in every colour and thickness. Don’t believe me? Check my jewelry box. These are the prettiest, most durable, and most stylish item you can own for under 30 dollars. For real. J.Crew’s bangles are finished in hand-enambled 14k gold, over brass, so even when the gold fades, you’ve still got a gold-like finish. And the colours? Have a look for yourself. Love these. ($21.50, J.Crew)
