Four Jeweled Cuffs: Would You Wear One?




Jeweled cuff bracelets are really big right now, both literally and figuratively, and I must say I'm loving the playful, go-bold-or-go-home attitude they exude. Maybe it's all that time I spent rummaging through bins of costume jewelry at church rummage sales during my formative years, or maybe it's just my preternatural penchant for shiny things. Whatever the reason, I am ready to rock this trend. The trick will be finding the perfect cuff at the perfect price, and right now Erickson Beamon for Target is seeming mighty nice. What do you think of bejeweled cuffs: Tempting or tacky?

[1] Kendra Scott Multi-Stone Cuff, Was $188 Now $94 at Gilt Groupe
[2] Erickson Beamon for Target Jeweled Cuff, $59.99
[3] Heirloom Cuff in Ivory, $138 at Stella & Dot

I saw all the Erickson Beamon jewelry in Target last night. I could see myself rocking all of the stuff. Especially the necklaces and the big jeweled ball ring. The key is to not to wear it all at once. That cuff would like gorgeous with a little satin shift and booties!

Love 'em, but not sure I could rock 'em. Does that make me a cuff coward?

The only cuff I would wear is the Stella & Dot piece, and there's no way I would shell out that much money for a trend I'm sure will come and go quickly. I still think the Erickson Beamon line looks cheaply made, but it could surprise me once I go take a look at it in person (I hope so). Perhaps my beloved J.Crew will jump on this trend and I can catch a cuff on sale!

Good news, Katie: I was at J. Crew yesterday and they had a gorgeous enamel cuff with a jeweled centerpiece. Stunning. Beautiful statement necklaces and cocktails rings for spring, too. Didn't see the pricetags as they were behind glass...

I would like to wear them all, but not sure I'd like to pay the price. Especially $60.00 for a Target purchase. I don't think they're tacky if worn appropriately.....and that is as a key accent piece.

I just love #3 - wish I felt the same about the price :-)
