I'm not big on Lucite jewelry but these ALEXIS BITTAR pieces are quite the exception. I think they put me in instant summer mode: cocktails at a rooftop soiree, vacationing, and all the other grand activities we engage in when we show more skin.
The Modernist Embraced bangle is a large hand sculpted Lucite bracelet embellished with 18k gold-plated brass, glittering pave and glass stones and Swarovski crystals with a magnetic clasp/$325. Create a nice balance with the Miss Havisham skinny bangle hand set with Swarvoski crystals in 18k gold-plate brass (three other metals to choose from)/$195. Both pieces are available at Nordstrom.
