It may have a dash of horse-bit luxe a la Gucci, but this wrap-around bracelet is Ralph Lauren all the way. Quite understated, a dash rugged, and elegantly chunky, the outdoorsy theme might be the same, but this has none of the European flash you’ll find on typical Gucci jewels. Hearty meets delicate, this is all-American – in the best way possible!
Not only is this a steal for an item out of Ralph Lauren Collection (not talking Rugby!), in three boldly varied colors, this makes for a lightly personalized gift no snob would turn down. A band of suede wrapped around the wrist is neutrally subtle in tan, playful in fuchsia, strong in turquoise, and uniquely chic in orange. A big, unapologetic metal chain, polished to perfection (unlike something out of the Double RL, which might boast purposefully tarnished sterling), makes for uptown ruggedness. Layer it with a juxtaposing stainless watch, layered strands by Chan Luu, a Cartier Love bracelet, or perhaps best of all, something Hermès. At Ralph Lauren for $195.
Pair with: Whichever color calls your name, Venessa Arizaga’s diamante-framed Dark Rainbow friendship bracelet will bring the lighthearted touch this wrap bracelet will welcome. On Net-a-Porter for $150.
