“I wanted to create an object epitomizing closeness and warmth,” West said via her publicist.
She designed the piece after the first U.K. lockdown in 2020.
“This bracelet literally hugs your wrist,” she explained. “It moves with you, radiating sparkles with every motion.”
It also comes in 18-karat yellow, white, or rose gold (seen below). Mirroring the shape of its links are two custom-cut trapeze diamonds adorning either end.
