There’s more to this arm candy than meets the”¦arm. It’s shiny and pretty and even glamorous, but what the naked eye might miss if it isn’t paying close attention is that this leaf is real.
The Real Leaf Cuff Bracelet from Nugaard Designs is made with a leaf from Brazil that’s hand-dipped in 18K gold ($98) or sterling silver (out of stock) and measures around 2 ¼ x 2 ½ inches. The gold is mined in Brazil where gold reserves are plentiful and mining is monitored by the government.
That’s not all. Nugaard Designs works with Trees for the Future and for each bracelet sold, a tree is planted.
Erica Pacey, a Brazilian native, is the force behind Nugaard Designs. She also created this beautiful Real Leaf Necklace with a hand-dipped leaf hanging from a 30″ chain. Also available in sterling ($89.50) or 18K gold ($98.50), find it along with the Cuff Bracelet at Delight.com.
