To ring in Post City’s silver anniversary, we asked Jeanne to select her favourite sterling and stainless pieces of arm candy, perfect for putting the finishing touch on any outfit. 

 

WINNER:

VAN RIJK JEWELLERS
90 Eglinton Ave. E, $1,650
“I look at this bracelet and think of home. I’ve been wearing this bracelet religiously since I first got it. It was the first gift I ever got from Tiffany’s — it just made me feel like Wonder Woman when I put it on. It says fashion and femininity and strength to me. I love it.”

 

 

Hammer it out
MARK LASH
9033 Leslie St., #8, $210
Mark Lash is one of our greatest homegrown jewellers. This is hammered silver — a very classic piece.”

 

 

A pick for Parvati
JEWELLERY BY VAROUJ,
515 Eglinton Ave. W., $666
“This is an actual vintage piece from India, so it’s got that old-fashioned closure with the pin. There’s a great sense of exotica — it looks like there’s a story to this.”

 

 

Fringe appeal
PARLOQUE, 
1093 Queen St. West., $900
“Wow! It’s got a very organic feel to it; it looks like a sea creature. I could play with this for hours. A total original.”

 

 

For the ladies
MAGWOOD,
886 Queen St. W, $247
“This is great. It’s like one of those ‘Diamonds Are a Girl’s Best Friend’ bracelets. Extremely feminine; very beautiful..”

 

 

Clean lines
PENWARDEN FINE JEWELLERY
,
631 Mt. Pleasant Rd., $3,495
“It’s a burnished steel so it’s not too flashy. I absolutely love the jewels that are encrusted — tourmaline and actual diamonds. Gorgeous.”

 

 

The underdog
S'WAG JEWELLERY,

Etsy.com, $165
“I love the whimsy of this little cuff—it’s a long sausage dog wrapped around your wrist! Really cute.”

 

 

Fit for Cleopatra
ANDREWS,

Bayview Village., $550
“This is almost like a piece of clothing. It’ll fit just about any size of wrist, which is sometimes a problem with bracelets. There’s something very Cleopatra about it.”

 

 

Sweet salvage
COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER,

587 Markham Street, $38
“This is a fun piece especially knowing that it comes from Haiti. It’s made from old oil drums—such an inventive way of recycling a material.”

 

 

Puttin' on the glitz
HOLT RENFREW, 
 
3401 Dufferin St., $450
“I love the dazzle of this. It makes a statement and it’s playful.”

 

 

Spiritual nature
HUNTRESS,

Thehuntresscollection.com, $900
“Just beautiful. It has a mystical quality to it that I really appreciate—there’s a wonderful esthetic to this.” 

 

 

Chic n' cheap
THE SHOE COMPANY,

31 Disera Dr. #100, $19.99
“This very affordable little bracelet makes such a statement and gives you the right amount of flash..”
