Treat yourself to some gorgeous glamour from a bygone era. This glowing jostle of golden baubles is the very essence of extravagance. Magnificently gilded with real gold plate, this bracelet is a tribal piece from Bihar in India.

This easy to wear vintage bangle from Rajasthan the “Land Of Kings” has a distinctly modern look.
