Responding to discerning women's desire for stunning fine jewelry that is also supremely comfortable and easy to wear, preeminent Italian jeweler Picchiotti has unveiled a beautiful solution: the Xpandable collection. Now, Leeds & Son Fine Jewelers on El Paseo has introduced the pieces locally as the exclusive Xpandable retailer in Palm Desert.

From first glance, the eternity bands, half eternity bands, and bracelets dazzle with timeless diamonds and precious gemstones. Some even incorporate ceramics, mother-of-pearl, turquoise, and coral. But what separates the collection is an innovative, invisible technology to expand and contract, solving the all-too-familiar challenges jewelry often presents.

Rings stretch easily over the knuckles then lightly contract to an ideal fit. Bracelets stretch smoothly over the hand and slide onto the wrist. Free of a clasp to fuss with, the bracelets also dispel any fear of catching on something and falling off. Part of the collection's striking beauty lies in its effortless design infused with peace of mind.

Xpandable rings come in three sizes (small, medium, and large), eliminating the need for resizing and ensuring a comfortable fit through every season. (Let's also mention: gift shopping just got easier. He can surprise you with the band you love even if he can't recall your size.)

Who are these styles for? Truly, who are they not for? Anyone who falls between ring sizes, who has wanted the option to wear the same ring on a choice of several fingers, who has struggled with opening and closing a bracelet clasp or getting a ring on or off, who has fluctuating finger or wrist sizes, or who has jewelry that goes unworn for myriad reasons will find the Xpandable collection to be nothing short of, as Picchiotti describes it, revolutionary.

For many women – some who admit to being skeptical – merely trying on several Xpandable pieces has entirely transformed the way they prefer to buy and wear fine jewelry.

The Xpandable story begins nearly half a century ago when jewelry designer and Picchiotti founder Giuseppe Picchiotti opened the doors of his eponymous atelier in Valenza, an ancient village in Northern Italy known for fine jewelry-making and design. Having risen through the ranks to become one of world's premier jewelry houses, Picchiotti creates their sophisticated collections entirely in-house, assuring excellence in the execution and complete quality control.

Picchiotti knows the rings and bracelets you wear most often are the ones that fit as if you had designed them yourself. Comfortable, easy to slip on and off, and flexibly sized to fit now and for generations, the pieces are destined to become go-to favorites.
