Combining vintage materials with modern design, this Mark Davis bracelet is in a class all by itself. The tortoise brown vintage Bakelite bangle has been refurbished and hand-polished to its original, spectacular condition and color. A design of cut-to-precision cream Bakelite hexagons has been inlaid into the bracelet and then set with shimmering yellow sapphires. Highly polished and finished to a seamless result, the look is a sophisticated, stunning work of wearable art. Beautiful alone, but even better coupled with a few of Mark's other bracelets!

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.
