While working in Montecito this past week, I took a quick break to check out one of the newer shops in the upper village, called Julianne. It’s a modern, highly curated shop, and I thoroughly enjoyed browsing and chatting with the kind staff.
On my way out, I took a peek in the jewelry area…and stopped…and asked the gal to take out her key pronto. Was it a watch? A bracelet? I was completely intrigued.
It turns out that it was indeed a bracelet, designed by Ann Dexter Jones. The sheer scale and weight of the $14,000 piece was impressive. Here’s a shot of it draped over my wrist, to give you an idea of its size.
Made of sterling silver, 18K yellow gold and yellow diamonds, it was quite a spectacular bracelet, unlike I’ve ever seen before. I wonder who it will end up going home with. Oprah does live about 3 minutes from the store…just sayin’. 😉
