Vivian Alexander should be an household name by now, but in the event you do not recognize the name I will go ahead and tell you. They design and create the most elite evening purses in the world. I happen to have a beautiful Vivian Alexander classic egg purse that I wear every chance I get. I am excited to report; it looks like they are venturing in jewelry designing as well… yippee.
Their silver cuffs are unique; no one else uses their technique of filling filigree spaces with translucent enamel. They’re so fancy; the filigree patterns are reminiscent of the wrought iron railings in the New Orleans French Quarter, my favorite place.
So, go ahead and cuff me!
