Piece of the Week: Picchiotti’s Xpandable Snakewood Bracelet
The limited-edition jewel celebrates five years of the patented Xpandable collection.
The fine jewelry brand launched Xpandable in 2016 and received a U.S. patent for the design three years later.
The innovative, invisible technology allows pieces to easily expand and contract, with no clasp required.
Now, the brand has taken its inspiration from the traditional gift to celebrate half a decade and added it to an Xpandable bracelet design.
The limited-edition piece features naturally shaded snakewood, 18-karat rose and white gold, and 2.79 carats of round diamonds to create a sleek, classic, and oh-so-wearable design.
Only five of the bracelets have been made.
They’re available now, priced at $38,000. Interested parties can reach out to Picchiotti USA at 404-239-9900, firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit the Picchiotti website.
The winners, picked by a group of judges and voted as the public’s favorite, will be announced in a webinar on Oct. 11.
