Jewelry that Tells Time

Jewelry designer Christian Tse created a novel jeweled bracelet that with the press of a hidden stem reveals the time illuminated on a LED-type screen that shines through diamonds or gemstones. The Prismatic Timepieces, starting at $5,000, can be customized with a variety of gemstones or individualized patterns in gemstones and delivered within 6 to 8 weeks.

Among the 30 different designs for men and women emblazoned on the round surface is the British Union Jack flag, the word Love, or a floral design, each meticulously executed with diamonds and gemstones. A popular style is White Ice, composed of white diamonds with a white stingray strap. Each jeweled timepiece is attached to a stingray, python, or alligator strap available in a breadth of colors.
