Dream Ticket: Balenciaga's New Bracelet Is A Serious Shark Attack

Pleasure and pain: Any pined-for, big-ticket purchase is inevitably a little bit of both. And when it comes to Balenciaga's new Dentrite Shark bracelet, that sentiment couldn't be more true. To inaugurate our new column celebrating all things dreamy and decadent, designer Nicolas Ghesquière's newest wrist candy definitely fits the bill. Equal parts fine jewelry and fierce fashion statement, the design comprised of six dentrite-stone shark teeth threaded together by leather lace and a base of glossy pewter is a study in iconoclastic luxury. Even if it does take a bite out of your budget, this stunning bracelet is a well worth any lingering sting...but let's face it, isn't that what makes it worth it?
$995, available at Balenciaga.com.
