The striking result is a raw liquid-gold aesthetic that chimes beautifully with the current trend for natural materials and organic silhouettes.
A dress watch fit for a treasure chest, the Bejewelled Lace Gold Bracelet by Olivia Burton contrasts its bullion-style strap with a dial full of filigree florals. And to delight our senses yet further, the antique lace-like effect is enhanced with a dainty dusting of tiny crystals. Exquisite.
