It's A Ring! It's A Bracelet! No, It's A Handlet--The Accessory Made Famous By SJP
October 21, 2013
Just when you were getting used to the midi-ring (you know, the fashionable term for the finger-knuckle ring), a brand new, legitimately non-existent before now accessory hits the market, and Sarah Jessica Parker buys one.
Now, per usual, no fashion trend takes off just because one celebrity wears it that one time (when she was hanging out with Prabal Gurung no less), but SJP isn’t your run of the mill celebrity. In fact, it was by her fashion eye alone that 90s couture made the lust lists of the middle class and made Jimmy Choo the must-own shoe.
Needless to say, when SJP likes something, it is only a matter of time before the rest of us like it, too, but that isn’t to say that some of her choices aren’t a bit bizarre (tutus and cropped tops and bows, oh my!). This time, it’s her hand bling that has caught our eye.
It’s a ring! It’s a bracelet! No — it’s a handlet, a bracelet for your hand, if you will. It is akin to the midi-ring, being worn right below the knuckles and right above where we are traditionally used to wearing jewelry in that area. For the most part though, it is just known as a hand cuff, but not the dirty kind.
Browse through and check out six of our favorite pieces, most of them at a steal of a price — that is, until the rest of the shopping world picks up on the trend.
