I never liked bracelets. I know what you’re thinking: How can I claim to love jewelry and say such a terrible thing? But it’s true. I disliked the way they felt—sliding up and down my arm, catching on sweaters, making jingle-jangle noises when worn in stacks. I just couldn’t pull it off. And then I discovered the cuff. There’s just something about this fabulous adornment that made my ensemble complete, and made me feel, well, cool. The cuff bracelet is large enough to star as a centerpiece to a simple dress or blouse; it stays put for the most part; and it comes in enough dazzling varieties to risk a jewelry box overflow (I speak from experience). So how do you start building this colossal collection? Marketplace, of course! Check out some of the coolest cuff bracelets from the jewelry industry’s essential sourcing site.
I. Reiss’ Hammered Diamond Cuff
I. Reiss’ cuff gets its delicate look from the hammered finish and fine diamond border. This wavy yellow gold design would be the perfect choice for work or play—dressed down or to the nines!
Marcia Moran’s Leather Druzy Bracelet
Marica Moran seriously ups the cool factor with this black leather wrist wrap dotted with druzy stones and a gold-plated closure. It’s the definition of biker chic!
William Levine’s Colorful Bling
It’s hard to say which makes William Levine‘s bracelet more intriguing—the 36 multicolored sapphires or the 7.70 cts. t.w. of diamonds! Whatever it is, this is one classy cuff. You may not file this one under “everyday wear,” but it’s not to be missed.
Marika’s Smoky Sensation
When it comes to cuffs, bigger equals better. (Well, for me anyway.) Marika’s yellow gold design certainly has size on its side—54 grams of gold!—not to mention a generous helping of smoky quartz lining each end, creating a focal point that’s sure to get noticed.
Baroni’s Santosha Cuff
The Santosha cuff from Baroni takes it back to where it all began with an ancient Greek vibe. Can’t you just picture this against a stark white dress—which you’re wearing while basking in the sun on the Greek Isles? Grab this 24k gold-plated silver charmer for your jewelry box and you’ll be on your way.
