Petit Lavande Cuff
Overlooking the Luberon Valley from the Château a patchwork quilt blankets the lush countryside, bursting with colors only nature can produce. The olive farm squares gracefully reveal familiar colors of dusty hunter green, gently accented by brilliant spring green vineyards, beige hay fields and pink cherry orchards.
During lavender season, just once a year, the patchwork squares of lavender go from green to the most lovely shade of violet-purple, in what seems like an overnight transformation. It is glorious! Driving down the highway, the newly blooming lavender releases its sweet aroma, drifting in and out, as the delicate winds blow through the village. Little bees are thrilled to do their job, as they happily pop from one delicate bloom to another. All is calm and peaceful.
Similar to its inspiration, each of our Lavande pieces are crafted by hand, making each bloom unique and one-of-a-kind. For that perfect "stacked-bangle" look, pair this piece with our Mur de Fleurs Cuff.
Stroll through Kristen Baird® Jewelry’s newest jewelry-design collection, influenced by her whimsical, summer days spent in LaCoste, France. Gather vibrant flowers from a weekly, spirited provincial market. Duck behind colorful, medieval-arched doorways for an elusive embrace. Brush fingertips against ancient Roman castle walls—laced with fragile blooms, endless vines and romantic peepholes revealing the bold, organic palette of the valley below. Experience low-hanging branches bursting with deep-pink cherry blossoms, a patchwork quilt of bright emerald olive orchards and brilliant lavender fields awoken by buzzing bees in a sophisticated collection that bares every sensation imaginable—the Bonjour Belle Collection.
Handcrafted in sterling silver, this cuff measures approximately 8mm at the tallest point and is accented by a "lavande" bloom, ranging anywhere from 9-12mm in designer's choice, on each side. Available in various wrist sizes of your choice from 5.5"-7.5" in interior circumference, each cuff is made slightly adjustable to ensure you find your perfect fit - the first time! The open side contains a 3/4"-1" opening, allowing for easy wear and removal. The beauty of this piece is that it can be worn with the flowers showing or reversed for ultimate versatility.
Note from the designer: once you find your happy fit, please avoid re-adjusting the cuff by repeatedly opening, closing or bending it on your wrist. Due to the natural characteristics of sterling silver/metals, prolonged stretching will most likely result in cracking or ultimately failure of your piece.
We find the best way to put a cuff on, is to take the opening of the cuff and put it over the side of your wrist (which happens to be the skinniest part of your wrist). Then twist the cuff, allowing it to comfortably sit on your wrist, looking up (or down...your choice!), and you’re ready to go! Take off the cuff in the same fashion - simply twist the cuff so that it slides gently off the side of the wrist. Voilà!
At Kristen Baird® Jewelry, we use partially to fully recycled sterling silver. The 18K gold used is certified 100% recycled and the gemstones we use are carefully selected in line with our commitment to social responsibility. Each piece is precisely handcrafted in our Savannah, GA studio, using a metalsmithing process called reticulation. As proof of authenticity, each piece is stamped with the .925 quality mark and whenever possible, is signed/marked with the Kristen Baird® maker’s mark, prior to delivery.
Due to the natural characteristics of handcrafted designs, each piece may contain slight variances from the photos shown. These variances allow uniqueness in every creation, but never take away from the quality of work or the complexity of design.
