Wrist Appeal

They say ‘bigger is better’ when pairing jewels with haute couture for the red carpet. Sometimes, even delicate jewelry can steal the show, provided you have a dazzling ensemble and killer heels for fashionable company. We have selected some fine and high-jewelry pieces from luxury brands that have serious wrist appeal.

Elegant, sensual and daring is probably the best way to describe Bulgari’s high jewelry, which is exquisitely unconventional reflecting the strong character of the Italian Maison. The iconic Serpenti collection and motif took a contemporary turn with some stunning creations from Bulgari’s atelier last year. A beautiful cuff that was a novel twist on the Serpenti, features elongated hexagonal shapes that resemble the scales of a serpent. These slender hexagonal motifs are set with green malachite and diamonds. Slip this on your wrist and turn everyone green with envy!

Need more green gems in your treasure box? Boghossian’s new Les Merveilles collection is all you need to dazzle at a party. The gorgeous Merveille bracelet, crafted in 18k white gold, is uniquely set in a new technique and features 18 mesmerizing Colombian drop-shaped emeralds in 110.12 carats and small brilliant-cut diamonds. 

Inspired by renowned dancer, choreographer Isadora Duncan’s motto, Valérie Messika designs the Isadora collection as an homage to the pioneer of modern dance. Messika’s Isadora hand bracelet is an audacious statement in diamonds. Cascades of pear-cut diamonds embellish the transformable ring and hand adornment.

We love Boucheron, Chopard, De Grisogono, Dior, Chanel and Harry Winston’s statement pieces, and adore the elegant bow motif bracelets by Graff and Chaumet. De Grisogono’s Allegra cuff is a bold option, while Fabergé’s Emotion bangle is a minimalistic one. Visit the Photo Gallery to view these wrist marvels.
