The cuff bracelet is back, and it’s an opportunity for some major pieces to make a big splash on the market as consumers seek to make a statement.
Not that such a creation from artful jeweler Renisis needed an upward swinging trend for it to be alluring. But the Skywalk bracelet, part of the brand’s Evidence of the Future collection, is the statement we’ve all been waiting to make.
“As the pandemic fades, I feel we need a renaissance of meaningful bold statement jewelry to rebuild our confidence and step out and that is what our brand, Renisis, is all about,” says Renisis founder and designer Sardwell.
“The Skywalk cuff was inspired by graphic elements of Japanese armor during the Edo period as well as the common chevron motif,” she continues. “The Samurai wore molded plates to protect their forearm, wrist, and hand, and with this influence, felt the collection needed a bold wrist element to protect, encourage, and invigorate us with its sharp design to go the distance. We worked on many renditions of this design to reach the correct visual weight and comfort. The clasp is also custom-designed for this piece.”
Despite its bygone inspirations, the cuff has more recent vibes to offer as well. “Customers have responded that they love large silver cuffs and felt it reminded them of artisanal silver jewelry pieces from the ’60s or ’70s,” Sardwell says.
We can’t say for sure how long it will take for warmer weather to officially arrive—March came in like a lion, as they say—but just the sight of this cuff might have jewelry lovers reaching for less sleeve and more statement silver.
“Soon with the spring and summer season arriving, there is nothing more striking, chic, and polished than a large silver cuff adorning our wrist or arm,” Sardwell says. “Wearing the Skywalker cuff, with a renewed confidence and protection to go after our dreams.”
