The bracelet featured below is famously known as the “Gloria Swanson Bracelet.” It was made for Gloria Swanson for the film, Sunset Blvd. The bracelet was inspired by two Cartier bracelets that Ms. Swanson had purchased in the 1930s. Like Coco Chanel, who was famously known for wearing her fine jewelry with costume, Ms. Swanson was often seen wearing both her Cartier bracelets paired with her Napier bracelet. The bracelet remained in the Napier line for more than 20 years.
This Napier Gloria Swanson bracelet is a wonderful reminder that all bracelets of this similar design do not have to be worn around the wrist, alowing for individual creativity.
