Some pieces just have it; that certain je ne se qua that sets them apart as not just jewelry, but true, covetable classics. Made with black Bakelite, this 50s bangle bracelet is automatically collectable, cool, and a little bit mod. But with amazing detail in 18K white gold and an impressive 2.38 carats of diamonds, this Bakelite beauty is not at all kitschy—it’s striking, luxurious, and a bold 2″W! Truly unique, this bracelet’s clever composition of materials has an innate irony and unconventional appeal that’s simply delightful.
