When it comes to fine jewellery, there are generally two distinct camps: delicate, feminine jewels or chunky statement-making pieces. This season, the latter is in pole position. Case in point: the arm cuff.

It’s no surprise that cuffs are the trend du jour. Worn alone or with others, this powerful bracelet is the height of finesse, harnessing the power to embellish any outfit. From Saint Laurent’s monogram textured gold number to Balenciaga’s gothic black beauty, the cuff will up the ante on your arm candy game.
Interesting fact: Harking back to the ancient world, cuffs have an incredibly rich history that stretches back thousands of years. Representing strength and courage, they have appeared in many different cultural contexts over the years, including among ancient Egyptians, who Ancient wore them in pairs, adorning them with precious stones and hieroglyphics.
Be it yellow or rose gold, paved with diamonds or more understated, graphic or smooth, MOJEH rounds up the repertoire of cuffs that we dream of having on our wrists.
