Swarovski crystal tennis bracelets



These are bracelets I really wanted from our day in Capri - the ones in the centre. There are exquisite pink sapphires, some white, some black diamonds, aquamarines, amethysts, emeralds...

OK, I first saw them in a store in Portofino on the Ligurian coast, on the Italian Riviera. They start at 1700 euros for the cheapest, going up to 3000 euros for the white diamonds. This is for just one of these gorgeous tennis braclets. And they look best with a few on your arm. These in Capri cost even more!

So - being me - I got five. Two pale green peridot colored ones and three brown diamond colored ones. From Sorrento. And mine are Swarovski crystal at a very tiny fraction of that price. I'll never forget the pink sapphires though. My gosh they were gorgeous!
