Remember the friendship bracelets that were all the rage back in the 80′ and 90’s where best mates would either make their good chums a bracelet out of woven fibres, or buy them the exact same one they were wearing? Well the friendship bracelet has matured and gotten all grown up in the last decade, thanks to a Brooklyn company called Scoshia, who specialise in creating bracelets out of natural fibres and precious gemstones. And boy do they look pretty amazing! Forget cheap and nasty plastic plaits with burnt off ends, Scoshia use only the most natural products, including rose gold, sterling silver, diamonds, rubies, emeralds and sapphires. And if you thought that mixing precious stones with natural fibres such as blended linen and natural waxed nylon could not possibly work, think again. The end product has a quirky feel to it but the added gems take it up another level. Think ‘attending a festival’ but you are in the private VIP area with all the stars. It’s that kind of bracelet; different enough to be noticed, well crafted enough to be commented on, exquisite enough to be lusted after. We have chosen our favourites from the website to give you an idea of what to expect but Scoshia also supply necklaces, earrings and rings but that’s a whole new article in itself.
