Expensive Bottega Veneta jewellery

Italian luxury fashion house, Bottega Veneta, is known for producing lines for men and women that include ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, accessories and jewellery - some of which will have you scratching your head.

Just recently, photos of a bracelet created by the luxury brand popped up online and it is every bit buzzworthy.
