Cuff bracelets have remained a popular trend for many seasons - and the reason is clear. They are highly versatile, extremely chic, and come in a wide assortment of metals, styles, and designs. The oh-so-wearable cuff bracelet has become a fashion standby that has the ability to enhance nearly any ensemble. Cuff bracelets have become very diverse as more and more jewelry designers create eccentric pieces of art for fashion lovers. From super thick and wide to narrow and delicate, cuff bracelets exude a feminine, yet powerful stance in the way of fashionable women. These are considered to be some of the best styles of cuff bracelets.

Wide Cuff Bracelets

These eye-catching pieces often come in a chunky design that leaves plenty of room for intricate artwork or etchings. Whether simple or extravagant, thick cuff bracelets are a fashion staple in many women’s wardrobe. The key to wearing these pieces is to keep all other jewelry very simple or nonexistent. Allow a single thick cuff bracelet to become the focal point of your entire ensemble.

Found in a wide range of thicknesses, widths, and designs, they are a popular piece of jewelry as they are not only stylish but also practical. From ornate to minimalistic, there is a cuff style for every woman that will help pull their ensemble together. Many women opt for a diamond-studded cuff in gold, sterling silver, copper, or aluminum for special occasions. Wide cuffs can also be casual or sporty for everyday wear. Both silver and gold varieties have the benefit of matching most outfits.

Delicate Cuff Bracelets

For a highly feminine look, many women prefer to wear slender, delicate cuff bracelets. These can be worn alone or layered with a variety of different bracelets or bangles to make a powerful fashion statement. Thin cuff bracelets are very versatile, adding just a hint of sparkle and shine to a simple outfit. Experiment with wearing several different textures at once, such as a silver cuff bracelet paired with leather or hemp bracelets. 

Beaded Cuffs

They have just the right amount of style without being too overwhelming. Beads can be found in a wide range of materials, including acrylic, glass, or clay. If you don’t like beads, gemstones can also bring about color to a simple cuff.

Filigree Cuff Bracelets

Filigree cuff bracelets are the perfect balance between chunky, thick cuffs and slim, delicate cuffs. They are dainty without being overly feminine, and can be very eye-catching with intricate designs. Filigree cuff bracelets often have patterns that resemble that of floral patterns, basket weaves, or other delicate styles. This style of cuff bracelet can be found in many cultures throughout the world, often carved out of silver or gold.

The cuff bracelet trend has made a big splash in the world of jewelry design, with an emphasis on the use of alternative metals. Cuff bracelets made of silver, gold, copper or other materials give these pieces of jewelry just the right amount of shine and luster to make a powerful fashion statement. If you have yet to try a cuff, what are you waiting for? Expect this popular trend to be around for the long haul.
