Newport is a place that celebrates the best of land and sea. It’s not uncommon, in fact, on a summer afternoon to be faced with the lovely dilemma of soaking up the sun with the sand between your toes or setting up a stellar tailgate at Glen Farm for the Newport International Polo Series. Mack & Jane cuffs combine these two Aquidneck Island passions with their wide color-stripe leather bases crowned with equestrian or nautical themed gold- or silver- plated charms including horseshoes, hearts, bees, starfish and coins. Each bracelet in the equestrian and nautical collections is unique, come in a selection of distinctive colors and many have detailed wrap braid construction. All are secured by a stylish and sturdy magnetic clasp and average around $97.
As they say, it’s a small world, and I learned designer Jane Makransky grew up across the Potomac River from me in Silver Spring, Maryland (it’s a Beltway thing). Now based in Philadelphia, her designs are worn coast to coast— Mack & Jane cuffs were included in the 2014 Academy Awards and Emmy Awards gift bags. I’m loving my nautical theme cuff in black and tan featuring a delicate gold-plated starfish. It’s chic, striking and makes a subtle stylish statement.
