The cuff can be traced all the way back to the classical era. Among Greek and Egyptian remains archaeologists have found, for instance, beautifully decorated gold bracelets dated to several hundred years BC. Uses of the cuff ranged from status symbols to protective talismans. The cuff is called a classic for a reason.
The bolder version of a cuff bracelet is sometimes associated with a hero's protective armour, not least thanks to a certain popular cartoon character and feminist symbol – Wonder Woman. Therefore, there’s no wonder that it has become a popular statement piece among both women in history as well as today's modern power women. In the early 20th century, with a peak into the roaring twenties, the cuff bracelet was the favoured piece of jewellery among international fashion designers. The next time the bracelet had a boom was in the 70s. Back then it was often seen on the wrists of Jackie O while also adorning the celebrities on the dancefloor of Studio 54. Now we see the cuff coming back as a favourite again, 50 years later.
The cuff is a most versatile accessory. It can be thin, thick, in silver or gold, extensively decorated or chic and simple. It can be styled for the office as well as for a night out and it can be worn individually or in pairs. The latter we have seen return to the catwalk this year in full force. For those of you who are eager to invest in a new cuff, look for Efva's own “Moonwalk cuff” or “Hooked on Simone cuff”, cool statement bracelets that really stand out. For something more discreet we have, for example, the “Hug Cuff”, “Twist Around Cuff”, and “Stars Cuff”.
