When I first encountered this jewelry piece I thought it was interesting because it could be function as both the bracelet and the rings at the same time. This bracelet with attached ring is made out of a silver with a red decorative stone. If were to wear this on the street of NYC, I would feel little uncomfortable since this jewelry is so big. If I were to redesign this piece I would keep the silver but I would modernize the details on the bracelet and the ring.

One thing that caught my eye when I first saw this piece of jewelry was the details on the face. This particular bracelet serves a role as a religious item. I do not think I would wear this jewelry just because of my religion, but if I were to wear it I would feel spiritual. If I were to redesign this armband, I would minimize the details on the band and focus mostly on the facial part of the armband.

This is a watch shaped bracelet that was made centuries ago. When I first saw this piece of jewelry, I thought of watch instantly and thought it was interesting to see this shaped design centuries ago. If were to wear this myself I would feel confident that I wear such a big piece of gold jewelry. I do not know which material would work because gold works really nice for this piece.
