|Lacet Parisien in leather and silver with the message: “Love U.”|
As you no doubt know, women and men are wearing ribbon, beaded, crocheted, leather and combinations thereof around their wrists this summer. They’re bright, ageless, mostly inexpensive accessories that give a touch of gaiety to whatever we’re wearing.
They tend to be even more fun when wrapped ’round and ’round or worn in multiples, maybe on the same wrist as a watch.

Recently I discovered a collection from the French company, Ursul, dubbed Le Lacet Parisien. On offer are bracelets in ribbons of cotton, satin or the famous checked Vichy print with a stainless steel “plate” on which you can engrave a message. (Lacet means “lace” as in shoelace.)

The more robust, longer lasting version comes in a variety of leather colors with a sterling silver message like: Love U and Miss U. Yes, even though the company touts its Made in France image the words are in English. Pourquoi pas? No doubt the company would consider monograming whatever you wanted to say since they promise to do so on the stainless steel.
The leather and silver versions are 49 Euros: the leather and stainless steel, 39 Euros;
