Chanel made Fulco di Verdura’s Maltese cuff bracelets famous, and decades later Kenneth J. Lane made them affordable and accessible with his costume jewelry interpretation. Now Verdura is rendering them in a gold version with trompe l’ceil detailing. Who needs gems when you can have solid 18k gold?
This bracelet sells for USD$49,500 and I’m betting Chanel would have been smitten, too.
