They don't look like costume jewelry — they're as dainty IRL as in the product photos. The gold-plated bracelets have small details on either side of the semiprecious gems (either triangles or small cubic zirconia diamonds, depending on the style).

They'll also come in two sizes, small and medium. There's a non-adjustable clasp mechanism that locks the bangle-esque Aries onto your wrist.


Gadget companies of the world, listen up: The time is ripe for more ~high-tech bling~.

So we can actually engage in conversation, soak up our surroundings, and enjoy our meals without obsessively checking our phones.
