During JCK Las Vegas 2010, Leslie’s introduced soft, expandable 14k gold bracelets to fit every wrist, and budget. Starting at $204 apiece
retail, the stretchable bracelets are made in Italy from gold wire, and serve
as an alternative to slip-on hard bangles—sometimes tough to fit over big wrists
and stay in place on small ones—according to the company.
Launched in rose, white, yellow, green, and brown gold, a
blackened style is new for this year. Meant to be stacked—“you need at least
three for a good look,” says a spokesperson—they may shift in order during the
course of wear, but they won’t slide off. One caveat: even though they feel as
springy as a hair band, don’t use them for that purpose. “Some of the repairs
we’ve gotten are from people who put them in their hair,” adds the staffer.
