Splurge or Save: Mesh bracelet

Screen Shot 2015-11-15 at 5.37.24 PM

We always coveted the sterling silver mesh cuff from Tiffany’s Somerset collection. Partly for how it looked, but also because it was so much fun to play with on our wrist. Though the mesh isn’t loose enough to change shape, the sterling silver stretches to fit onto most wrists and looks beautiful over black cashmere or peaking out from a soft silk blouse.

At $625, it’s a fair amount of money for a pretty casual piece. So we sourced this Blue Nile version. It doesn’t have the robin-egg-blue pedigree but it is lovely – and unique enough that it won’t look like you’re sporting a fake.

And when we tried it on, it still had the same flexible fun characteristic as the Tiffany version. The Blue Nile version is also thicker than the Tiffany version, which makes it even better for a nice date night.

Which one would you wear?
