The delicate and minimalist design of the bracelets and pendants is centered around a signature ingredient that is cast in the highest quality sterling silver and paired with rich Italian leather in a variety of colors. Ingredients include a wide variety of animals, vegetables (which brunchy options including eggs, coffee beans, and pigs). Delicacies has also begun to roll out a series of charitable culinary partnerships.
