YSL Arty Agate Cuff
WHAT: YSL Arty Agate Cuff
WHY: Rough around the edges in the most decadent way imaginable, this glorious YSL cuff features a broodingly dark agate traced in textured golden crevices. But the bewitchment for the wrist doesn't stop there: it's a case of agates à deux, thanks to a milky square of stone gripped with claw-like prongs. As a bonus, the stones are purported to harness mystical and calming powers. Well, on the basis of looks alone, we're spellbound!
AVAILABLE: $750, YSL.com
