Jewel of the day: Retro Diamond Rose Gold Detachable Double Clip Bangle Bracelet

Retro pieces don’t get the love they deserve. Coming after the sleek  white gold and platinum lines Art Deco, the somewhat chunkier rose gold Retro pieces led the way to what can be rather forgettable 1950s jewellery. But Retro pieces have undeniable charm.

This 18k rose gold, diamond set bracelet has the added advantage of detachable dress clips (a personal fave of mine). It also has some of the look of late Art Deco married to the emerging 40s look.

1st Dibs seller Hartz & Co. is selling this for USD$14,800.

Chains and links are a staple in jewelry design. In this bracelet by Bex Rox, multiple chains are used to create a cuff.

They note, “Composed of 24k yellow gold plated chains interwoven with fine silver plated chains and fastened with a 24k yellow gold plated signature magnetic clasp.”

This sells for £327.

Jewel of the day: Crow’s Nest Tennis Bracelet

This is not your average tennis bracelet. By Crow’s Nest, it features individually cut stones (kunzite, topaz, sapphire) on a yellow diamond studded chain. Pretty!

Jewel of the day: Carolina Bucci 15 Strand Lazy Lucky Bracelet

Carolina Bucci is perhaps best known for the tie them yourself single strand bracelets (and frankly, I could never figure out how those were supposed to stay on). This has a clasp, making things easier and more obvious.

This one is in a colour way she has dubbed ocean, fitting for its blues and greens.

Jewel of the day: Leah Alexandra Fling Moonstone Cuff Bracelet

I always think of a cuff as being a fairly substantial piece of arm candy but this is a delicate open bangle. By Leah Alexandra, it’s meant to be stacked and lends itself well to that style. It’s set with moonstones at either open end, and is gold plating over brass.

This sells for USD$170.

Jewel of the day: Melanie Georgacopoulos Mother of Pearl Bracelet

If pearls are seen as stuffy and conservative, mother of pearl is often seen as its cheap, sleazy cousin. But here, mother of pearl is used to excellent effect in a necklace set in 18k white gold and fastened with a South Sea pearl.

By Melanie Georgacopoulos, this is a sharp contemporary piece that makes elegant use of its materials. What more could you ask for? About the designer (who is now in charge of designs for Tasaki), who describes her aesthetic as, “challenging ideas about classic pearl jewellery. Here she set to capture the elemental quality of this organic, precious stone and to reinvest it with modern meanings far removed from tradition. Since then she has been exploring the endless aesthetic possibilities that the pearl can provide as jewellery. Her work constantly defies convention, bringing the pearl to the domains of art and high fashion, whilst retaining its quality as a wearable accessory.”



Jewel of the day: Marteau Turkmen Silver Armband

This antique piece of Turkmen silver, an armband, looks fresh and contemporary though it is circa 1890. It is sold by NY-based Marteau for USD$545.

With the help of the ram, this cuff harnesses supernatural power for a look, and a feeling that unearthly.”
