My love of fashion and collection of designers has always been accessories. I value the design of clothing, haute couture and the collections but my real passion for collecting has always been accessories. Accessories are my weakness and it is no secret that I love to collect Hermes bags and fine jewelry and fashion jewelry. My obsession with accessories has even inspired me to create my own collection of After Five Handbags and

I collect costume jewelry and invest in pieces of fine jewelry, pearls and jewelry that I believe is worth the cost for the value of the stones and the craftsmanship of the design and setting, and if it has a designer name and or pedigree – even better! A lot of my followers ask me, from my vast collection, if I have any favorite pieces of jewelry or handbags I could never consider parting with and why I love them so much, so here is one I decided to share with you.

This is a “gem” of an accessory I discovered and I love the size of this cuff, the white pebble leather finish is perfect for day or evening and the gold, diamante trim lends an elegance that can make a statement by itself or upgrade any style of outfit with a combination of other gold or silver accessories. And the price is a steal – $95! I loved it so much I added it to my personal collection available through my website, www.theworldofleablack.com
