I was supposed to look for X’mas gift ideas under SGD100 from Hermès, but because nobody really wants agenda refills and body lotion under the tree come Christmas morning, I gave up after a while. One click led to another (there were at least 6) and before I knew it, I was ogling the Hermès Alchimie Bracelet.
Priced at USD133,000, Hermès calls it a skilful combination of the iconic Collier de Chien, Kelly, Mini Clous, Sellier chain bracelet and Chaine d’Ancre Enchainee. More specifically, all the different designs are ‘stacked’ into one large bracelet made up of rose gold and diamonds, totalling some 4.73 carats in all.
There’s no denying how stunning it is, despite it being an amalgamation of so many styles which could be jarring to some. Then again, it’s Hermès, and as far as I’m concerned they can do no wrong.
