Rare & Beautiful: Statement Cuffs

19th July 2017 // By Manon Crespi

Graziela Gems 18K yellow gold Egyptian cuff with 1.71 carats emeralds, 0.28 carats blue sapphires, 0.20 carats rubies, 0.13 carats pink sapphires and 0.08 carats white diamonds, $31,099, grazielagems.com

There’s something very empowering about wearing a statement cuff. I can’t deny that Wonder Woman’s bullet-defying cuffs are the first to come to mind, even if they serve a greater purpose than looking fabulous. Today’s statement cuffs — presented below in many shapes, sizes and materials — not only evoke a sense of strength and confidence, but they also exude glamour, sophistication and an enchanting allure. The proud span of 18K yellow gold Phoenician wings accented with emeralds, rubies, pink and blue sapphires and diamonds in the Graziela Egyptian cuff is high drama at its finest. Geometric inspiration takes shape in the Jewelmer and Effy cuffs while the call of nature beckons with both the Wendy Yue carved opal owl and Gismondi’s gemstone encrusted rose cuffs. Scroll down for these exquisitely crafted and imaginative power cuffs along with more of my favorites from Margot McKinney, Picchiotti, Roman+Jules, Jack Kelege, Jane Taylor, Ralph Lauren, Sanjay Kasliwal, Sylvie and Jye.
