On transparent paper taped to a heavier back is depicted in color two gold bangles with detachable clip marked by their number underneath. The detachable central clips that seem to be of white metal are the same on each bangle. They are mounted horizonally and depict a crest with a running fox at the bottom composed of small round diamonds set in white metal. The crests consist of diamonds, rubies, colored tourmalines, carved emeralds, faceted aquamarines, and topaz. The bangles curve towards the center and have small round diamonds set in a row at the top and bottom rim. Variation #1 has the colored stones and diamonds each set in a star-shape and individually placed on either side of the crest going around to the back of the bangle. Variation # 2 has small vertical rows of round and baguette diamonds, decreasing in height, in between which are colored stones. The left hand corner of the sheet bears the embossed stamp identifying the firm and the Reflection series.
