This Cuff’s the Stuff
|Jewelry designer John Hardy accepted Neiman Marcus’ challenge to create a signature piece exclusively for Neimans. The six-inch Jasmine & Frangipani Trellis Cuff is “very limited”—with only 10 signed and numbered pieces available. It is inspired by the flowers and foilage of a tropical garden and is bathed with 3.83 carats of diamonds on sterling silver. ($12,000/Neiman Marcus Downtown)|
