Must-have bracelets for precious wrists
Wide, rigid and close-fitting on the wrist, far from the rules of classic jewellery, decorated with gems or artistic elements...
There are two moments in the history of cuff bracelets, a model inspired by fabric cuffs on garments, that immediately come to mind: the creative encounter between Coco Chanel and Duke Fulco di Verdura, who together were the first to transform the sartorial element of a jacket or shirt into an item of jewellery, and the iconic "Bone cuff" created by Elsa Peretti in the early 1970s for Tiffany & Co., a liquid silver bracelet that marked the beginning of a must-have that has never been out of fashion since.
And for summer 2022, which is just around the corner, cuff bracelets will once again be a successful trend, thanks to the originality of new proposals, reinterpreted in a contemporary key to become the perfect accessory with which to personalize the style of an outfit.
There are many models to choose: from the most refined made of solid gold to those featuring soaring architectural profiles, to the most artistic ones, which bring Byzantine or Art Nouveau decorations back to life.
