School Me: How to Put on a Cuff Bracelet

Cuff bracelets are one of our favorite accessories. These stylish pieces are easy to wear: there's no need to worry about a clasp, closure or ordering the wrong size.

Diamond Rustic Cuff Bracelets

While cuff bracelets are meant to be lightly adjusted, repeatedly stretched and compressed metal can wear over time, not to mention diamonds can pop out! To avoid weakening your treasure, we've come up with an easy guide to adjusting and loving your cuff.



Before putting these bracelets on for the first time, take a look at the side of your wrist. Find the narrowest part on the thumb-side: this is where your cuff will slide on.

Very, very gently stretch the two ends apart, just wide enough to fit over the most delicate part of your wrist.

Turn the cuff sideways, and slide it on, turning your arm into the bracelet until it's correctly positioned.

To make it tighter, put your whole hand over the bracelet (so that you don't weaken one spot), and squeeze just enough so that it won't slide off. Be sure you can still slip it back off the side of your wrist, reversing the process.

You shouldn't need to adjust your cuff again, which will give it a much longer life. 

 

Betsey & Iya have a great video showing this technique. Sometimes a picture (or moving pictures) are worth a thousand words!

 

 

Love Story: Nick & Ilah Rose

One great thing about this industry is being able to contribute, even in a small way, to someone's love story. 

Recently we were lucky enough to work with customers Nick and Ilah Rose to create the perfect custom ring

The 18k yellow gold piece is set with white diamonds and a gorgeous Montana sapphire. These special gems usually come from the western side of what is known as "The Treasure State."

Nick & Ilah worked closely with Sarah to capture the right vibe: looking upwards to celestial bodies for inspiration. Elements of the sun, moon, stars and universe influenced this dreamy design.



For Sarah, work like this is special, " One of the most exciting aspects of making jewelry is embarking on a custom project." 

"I get the greatest satisfaction when I see a client's eyes light up upon revealing the finished product of their vision."
