World famous jewelry designer Alexis Bittar made a personal appearance at Nordstrom’s flagship store in downtown Seattle last week. His jewelry embodies elegance, color and magnificence. His creations are admired by the likes of First Lady Michelle Obama, Caroline Astor and designer Jason Wu.

We asked Alexis what his “must have” piece for women is- his answer, a great statement cuff.

Alexis Bittar has always been one of my favorite jewelry designers, my very first piece of his was a bright red bangle, I have since continued to add to my collection. It’s hard not to when everything he puts out is gorgeous! He’s on Twitter @ABittarRetail follow him. I’ve also written a couple other blog posts about Alexis Bittar that you can see here and here.

Thank you @katiarenee and @nordysanda for helping me with the pictures!
