With its tactile, eye-catching composition and meticulously arranged design, this Mark Davis Chelsea bracelet is a modern work of wearable art. The caramel-hued bangle of vintage Bakelite has been polished and meticulously refinished to reveal its original, saturated color. Square shaped cut-outs are evenly spaced in a checker board around the bracelet and inlayed to create an eye-catching canvas. Polished to a seamless perfection, the lustrous surface is set with sparkling yellow sapphires. Alone, it looks amazing, but pair it with another Mark Davis bangle and you have created a one-of-a-kind look.

NEW YORK - Rare, collectable and often one-of-a-kind, each bangle from Mark's collection is a perfect balance of vintage and modern materials. The vintage Bakelite - one of the first plastics ever made - acquired from estate sales, antique markets and individual dealers has been intensely polished and refurbished to its original color and luster and then set with modern designs of precious and semi-precious bezel set stones.

The marriage of saturated color, sparkling stones and clean, linear patterns create a piece of jewelry like no other. Easy to combine, layer and stack, these bangles are a distinguishable, sophisticated balance of old and new.
