Ceramic is not the first material that comes to mind when you think of fine jewelry, but LAGOS's revamped caviar bracelets are more luxe than arts and crafts. The new collection uses smooth ceramic "caviar" beads to add texture to 18-carat gold and diamonds. "I love the smooth finish of ceramic and the color choices it offers," said founder and creative director Steve Lagos. "Ceramic widened the design scope for us in many ways."
All of the pieces feature a signature LAGOS bracelet clasp that allows for a better fit over the wrist and makes the bangles easy to stack. They're clearly an investment buy, but look at it this way: When you pass these on to your kids as an heirloom someday, they might actually appreciate it.
