National Jewellery Week: friendship bracelets

It’s National Jewellery Week and everywhere I look there are articles on baubles, bangles and bling. Even the guys are non-exempt – witness Charlie Porter’s piece on businessmen in bracelets in the FT.

Well, I love a bit of wrist-candy and have some extra space on mine as my beloved Hermes Medor watch has a broken neck and has been sent to the Hermes hospital for surgery. Disaster!

Here are some of the luxury friendship bracelets I’m eyeing up:

Shashi ballerina bracelet, £62, Kabiri

Silk bracelets, 45 euros, Vadi Jewels

Philip Crangi/Michael Bastian gold and leather bracelet, £49.55, Colette

Dana Levy, satin cord horseshoe bracelet, £28, Liberty

And I’m still pining for a carbon copy of my long-deceased Van Rycke bracelet
