History: A cuff bracelet is a thick bracelet that encircles the wrist like the cuff of a blouse and is mostly fastened with a hinge closure, dating back to the Byzantium.  Famous designer and icon Coco Chanel was rarely photographed without her iconic Maltese Cross cuff, also inspired by Byzantine artwork.  During the 60's and 70's jewelers experimented with different textures implementing carving, engraving, and a multitude of finishes, which were applied to bracelets, necklaces, and brooches.
