Glamorous Grids

If glamour and sex appeal are what you seek, then grid bracelets are for you, say Penny Proddow and Marion Fasel in November's In Style. "The peekaboo pattern lets skin shine through, while the rows of netlike metal leave plenty of room for shimmering jewels," they say. Grid bracelets come in simple metal styles or with mixed gems. Some even have leaves, buds and vines in place of the plain grid. According to Proddow and Fasel, these bracelets are appropriate for day and evening looks.

Featured in November's In Style is a white gold bracelet with sapphires and diamonds by Roberto Coin, a gold and diamond bracelet by Temple St. Clair Carr, a white gold vine bracelet with diamonds by Jordan Schlanger, a gold bracelet with pave diamonds by H. Stern and a Cartier five-row white gold bracelet with diamonds.
