Cheap Chic: Banana Republic Cuffs
Banana Republic, like J. Crew, has been cranking out stellar jewelry for ridiculously low prices--just in time for the costume jewelry craze. The above cuff looks like something one would find at Barney's--the dark tortoise, the coral cabochon, and the dainty crystals all work harmoniously to resemble a vintage piece to cherish. Instead of the $5k price tag you'd pay at Barney's, this find is only $44. My only objection is its large size, which doesn't fit petite wrists like mine.
The following two cuffs are cut smaller and work best for medium-sized wrists:
The stark white cuff would look amazing with a white shift dress, and the exotic turquoise and green cuff would stand out beautifully on a minimalist work look. Both cuffs are a mere $39.
