my search lead me to instyle, where i learned the little treasure was swarovski. after scouring the swarovski website, i decided the item is either:
a. old and no longer available
b. super new and not available
so, today i called my local swarovski shop and asked for the scoop- the sales associate told me the bracelet is so new it hasn't landed in the united states yet (score). it will be available in-stores october 15th. unfortunately, it's considered a high-fashion so it won't be available in all their retail locations AND since it was featured on gg, it could sell out before it hits the floor. this left me with one alternative- i had to scoop up the little jewel then and there. if you're swooning over this little bangle, call you nearest swarovski store asap.
