Item of the Day: Les Georgettes

In Item of the Day, What's New by Accessories Staff

Les GeorgettesExotic skins have been making a comeback in leathergoods, whether real or embossed. Now, Les Georgettes,  a new jewelry collection of the South of France, hopes to find similar success with alligator skin in jewelry.

Made from sterling silver and gold-plated cutwork, the jewelry from Les Georgettes has an intricate alligator skin detailing and is lined with high quality leather in super-luxe colors. Differently colored on either side, the leather is designed to be worn either way round and clips into the metalwork frame. Small studs on the reverse of each piece hold the leather in place. Or simply wear the jewelry without the leather backing for a classic, striking look.

It’s a case of jewelry style with a real bite.

Retail: $107 to $381
