An Expensive Mistake

Loree Rodkin Star Bracelet, $6,839 via Gilt.com

Is it just me, or does anyone else find this cuff bracelet disturbing? Perhaps it's the military aesthetic in which it was executed, but it strikes me as a cross between the arm cuffs worn by Nazi soldiers in WWII and the Star of David that they required Jewish poeple to wear. The $16,675 price tag is also very disturbing, but you can get it 60% off at gilt.com. (Whoopie!) I suggest to you that it's not worth it. Maybe I shouldn't be cracking lame jokes about such an issue, but I kind of want to call it a "stardavstica" bracelet.
