Pencil Me In
We’ve heard of pencil skirts, but pencil bracelets? Jewelry designer Costis says yes. For his latest collection of wares, the Greek native, whose namesake label has a large following in Italy, decided to take everyday objects and elevate them into wearable art. Enter the pencil bracelet. Bejeweled with diamonds, the snakelike wrap bracelet comes in 18-karat yellow and white gold, with black diamonds at the tips—strategically placed to mimic the graphite in a pencil. This week they landed stateside at select Neiman Marcus locations. At $39,000 to $73,000 a pop, we like to think of them as investment pieces. We’d certainly like one for our back-to-school supply.
