Trend to Watch: Power Cuffs

    APRIL 20, 2017

    Cuff bracelets are powerful statements that have roots in ancient Egypt, when warriors pulled leather and gold bands onto their forearms before battle for spiritual and physical protection; some even inscribed them with personal stories and commitments to the gods. Today, the power cuff is reasserting its status. Designers are embracing bold creations that arm jewelry-lovers for modern-day battles.
