Lust Have – The Cuff Bracelet

While thinking about how to best update my wardrobe, I found that I was spending a lot of time thinking about accessories. The Lust Have accessory for today is The Cuff Bracelet.

You may have noticed, I seem to consider all things Chanel lust worthy. This amazing cuff is no different. I love that it is black and white, a little feminine yet masculine, and that it is a whole lot of GORGEOUS!

But alas, I am a budget conscious working woman, so must continue to have my lustful dreams of this beauty.

Funny thing is while looking around on the internet I find this little white beauty from Seaman Schepps at Betteridge. The white carved ivory and pretty diamond bands. “How expensive could it be”, I thought. Well, to my surprise, just over $25,000! And that ain’t no typo! Pretty = yes, on my lust have list = yes, ever likely to be purchased by me = NO!

Even funnier thing, I looked at many cuff bracelets that I thought were beautiful and almost every one was over $2,500! Needless to say, I had to keep searching as I want a cuff bracelet, but I am not going to spend more on it than the rest of my jewelry collection is probably worth!

This cuff from Spangle is not quite in the league of the other two, but it is very pretty. I rather like the repeated circles. It makes it seem delicate. It’s about 50 pounds sterling, which makes it just around $100 AUD. Which means the price is far more realistic than the other two! I think it could be a nice addition to my wardrobe and classic enough that it could be worn for many years.

Here’s another one that is right around the $100 price, from Sausalito Silver Company. Again is has lovely curves to counteract the hard metal and is simple and classic enough to wear for a very long time.

The last one is actually a full on bracelet. What I like about it is the multi-strand wrap look. You are getting a bit of bang for your buck and you don’t have to stack on a lot of bracelets to finish off your look. It’s currently on sale at ShopBop.com for just over $60, so the price is right. This Kenneth Jay Lane Triple Twist also has a timeless look that I could wear over and over, dropping the cost per wear price down to cents.

I’m not sure, very torn about the right cuff/bracelet and having a hard time deciding on the budget for this item. Maybe my perfect Lust Have – Cuff Bracelet doesn’t exist in my budget. Do I want too much for my money?

Help? Anyone have suggestions?
