Fire Engine Red Leather Bracelet & Choker

A Fire Engine Red Leather bracelet ties all these accessories together!

If you are looking for a way to edge up an outfit with an unusual piece of jewelry I highly recommend having a peek at one of the leather bracelets my good friend Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a budget) has for sale at her new online site, Shop the Rich Life! Summer is a time when I really like to wear navy, white and red as much as possible, so when Adrienne said she was going to send me one of the leather bracelets as a gift in a color of my choice, the Fire Engine Red was my top pick!

Colorful and comfortable!

This piece of jewelry, with 12 strings of leather and a snap fastener, does something I always appreciate—it multitasks! It can be worn as a double-wrapped bracelet or a loose-fitting choker. I love how striking and unexpected it is, whether on my wrist or around my neck, and I also love the bright heart-stopping shade of red. I like wearing it right now, with navy and white (and a leopard clutch!) and I also think this will be a terrific-looking accessory in those colder months too, when I am looking for something with bold color to brighten up the all-black I tend to wear in fall and winter.

I love how this bracelet has the ability to expand depending on how you hold your arm!

I have to say too how comfortable this is as a bracelet—I wore it for several hours the first time I tried it on and it just moved with me, never a bother. I am the kind of jewelry wearer who despises a bracelet that is flopping around, banging into keyboards and counters and getting in the way, and I am happy to report this bracelet was so lightweight and comfortable it seemed to be a part of me!

One way I will be wearing this: With a neutral manicure and carrying a leopard clutch!

I thought it would be fun to pair the choker with classic pearl studs. I like the combination!

In addition to Fire Engine Red, the bracelet comes in several other colors: Make Me Blush, Black Licorice, and Like a Fine Cognac. They are designed by the talented Jessica Zoutendijk of Large Leather in Sonoma, CA, are 15” x 1 ¾,” feature full-grain leather, sell for $59, and, from the leather sourcing to the crafting, are 100% made in America!

How about celebrating Christmas in July by gifting yourself this amazing piece of jewelry?!

Disclosure: This bracelet/choker was a gift from Adrienne and her online boutique Shop the Rich Life (thank you, my dear!), but all opinions written about it here are my own.

Jill, you picked the right color! The red is just amazing on you. What edgy pieces, I love them.

I really like the choker and I don't have a leather necklace (but I own several leather bracelets, they are my favorite).

Hi Helen, I could see you wearing this piece as a leather choker--maybe the Make Me Blush? You look so good in pale pale pink! xx
