    In the spirit of Fulco di Verdura, who in 1930 reworked Coco Chanel’s outdated jewels into sensational Maltese Cross cuffs, Verdura’s president, Nico Landrigan, fashioned the ultrachic bracelet seen here from a 1940s diamond and gold brooch. He conceived the idea a couple years ago after buying a dazzling but diminutive Victorian sapphire and diamond brooch. Not sure what to do with it, he placed the brooch on a blue agate cuff, and “it just sang,” says Landrigan. Since then he has made about 20 one-of-a-kind bracelets, using decorative pins dating from the 16th century. “Fortunately, small brooches get ignored,” he says, “so I get the pick of the litter.”
