Let your bracelet do the talking with conversation-starting wrist wear
From cuffs made using ethically-sourced materials to embellished pieces that literally sparkle, here is our pick of the best eye-catching wristwear on the market today.
1. Made Fungua Cuff: £30, Asos
If embellishment isn’t your thing, make a statement in brass. Made’s pieces are sustainably produced and handmade in its Kenyan workshop. This large, hammered-brass cuff looks simple but very, very effective.
2. Monki Norma bracelet: £8, Monki
The Swedish fashion brand has nailed striking, affordable jewellery, like this slip-on, gold-tone cuff with an emerald-green centrepiece that will leave you with change from a tenner.
3. Stella & Dot Chantilly lace cuff: £85, Stella & Dot
This cuff’s design was inspired by vintage lace. It’s super-delicate but big enough so that it makes an impact on the wrist. It’s adjustable and available in this chic matte black or gold.
4. Butterfly Black Ice Statement Cuff bracelet: £69.99, Jules B
Glam up for an evening do with this blingy bracelet from London-based Butterfly. The flower made up of monochrome beading and crystals set on a black velvet cuff combine to make a luxe-looking sparkler.
5. J Crew wide crystal bracelet: £200, Lane Crawford
Since the US brand launched in the UK in 2013, its statement jewellery has made an impact in the fashion world. The collection is heavy on mixed stones and just the right amount of bling, like this hammered-effect, gold-plated cuff studded with rose quartz and other magpie-friendly embellishments.
6. & Other Stories Chunky rock cuff: £35, & Other Stories
This one might look simple, but the weighty gold-tone design contrasting with the ice-like enamel will mean the eye’s drawn to your wrist. It’s not adjustable, but comes in two sizes.
7. Missoma Gold cuff with multi gemstones: £295, Missoma
Marisa Hordern, the designer behind the London-based jewellery brand, creates pieces using colourful gemstones. This slim cuff is from the Rainbow Enigma collection, made of 18 carat gold vermeil set with five bright sparklers.
8. Sue Gregor Pink Grass Cuff: £49, Sue Gregor
Designer Sue Gregor uses the plants foraged around her home to make her cuffs; drying and pressing the plants so that they leave an imprint on the acrylic, before adding colour. She calls the technique “fossilised plastic”, which we think nicely captures the unique, nature-inspired look of the pieces. There are two widths available.
9. The Branch Oval coral stone cuff: £52, The Branch
Mix up textures in your jewellery box by adding some wood into the mix. This British-designed, Indonesia-crafted bracelet is made from ethically sourced rosewood and silver plate. The simple geometric shape makes it a striking, versatile piece.
10. Konplott Ethnic Mosaic: £155.50, Konplott
Founded in 1986 by Greek-born Miranda Konstantinidou, Konplott’s jewellery is handmade in the Philippines and the collections are produced in small numbers. This heavily-embellished design with stones in blue, green and red hues is typical of the eye-catching pieces.
11. Lapis Cuff Bracelet: £89.01, Etsy
Embrace your tribal spirit with this style made by artisans living in Peshar, along the Afghan border. The deep blue lapis stones add a touch of colour to the antique silver and the spikes give it a unique shape that will make a statement wherever you go.
The Made Fungua Cuff is our top pick. We loved the fact it comes from a sustainable source, as well as its beautiful simplicity which means it will go with any number of different styles - all at a very reasonable price.
