Fans of aggressive arm candy, this news is for you. Parisian designer Aurélie Bidermann—aka the jeweler of choice for mega stars like Beyoncé, Emma Watson and Rihanna—is considering LA for the home of her second store in the United States. Bidermann tells WWD that she's been scouting locations and is "eyeing a 2015 opening."
The designer, who frequently shares her own decorative wrists on Instagram, currently has one flagship boutique in Paris and one shop in New York. Prices range from $324 for a gold-plated bracelet to $17,127 for a pair of gold/ruby/diamond earrings.
