Clutch Jewelry's Tasman Wrap Bracelet

Each week Gem features one standout piece from a local shop. Whether it's a jacket, necklace, or handbag, it's on our have-to-have list.

What: When it comes to spring break accessories, we look for pieces that are casual and more adventurous than our everyday bric-a-brac.

That's why we're drawn to Clutch Jewelry's Tasman charm, a metallic version of the two-faced tiki that represents anger and pain -- which naturally we equated to vacation sunburns and the fact that we cannot forever inhabit distant paradisaical 'scapes. To each her own tan lines, right?

Where: Clutch Jewelry's online shop

Cost: The charm is $160 in sterling silver, and shoppers can pick the color of the leather cord -- red, green, yellow, brown, or black.
