Tiffany & Co. Just Locked Down the Next Big Thing in Bracelets

Investment-worthy jewelry—the stuff you shell out for now, wear for years, and let your kids fight over when you’re dead—doesn’t scream for attention. It reveals itself quietly, then demands a second look. It makes even the jewelry-phobic feel like they might be missing out. And in the case of the new Tiffany Lock bracelet, it does all of this while paying homage to a design motif that’s as essential to the company as the famous little blue box.

Since the late 1800s, the lock has been entwined with the history of Tiffany, seeing its way onto pieces like heart-and-key pendants and charms. But the Lock bracelet is sleeker than its forebears. It’s capsule shaped and lightweight on the wrist, adding a bolt of shine without weighing you down. You can stack it or wear it on its own, and it twists to open and close effortlessly. Which means that even though you can remove it with ease, you might not want to.
