How to Put on a Cuff Bracelet 

Over the years we have been asked many times about the proper way to put a cuff bracelet.  Although there are many ways to do it, we always try to protect the stone setting.

A cuff bracelet is one that does not close on the wrist but simply rests on the wrist with a gap or open space on the inside of the wrist. Cuffs usually only need to be adjusted once and not each time you wear it.  We always suggest putting on a cuff starting at the thumb side of your wrist to ensure the stones do not loosen in their settings and that metal fatigue does not occur. 

Step One:  To put a cuff bracelet on your wrist simply hold the cuff in your opposite hand with the opening facing out. Gently slide the bracelet over your thumb with each side of the cuff on the top and bottom of your hand.

Step Two:  Starting with outstretched fingers to flatten your hand, begin sliding the bracelet down and over your hand towards your wrist.

Step Three:  When you reach the smallest part of your wrist gently begin turning the bracelet.

Step Four:  Turn the bracelet so the opening or “gap” is at the underside of the wrist and the decorative top faces outward. To keep your cuff in the best possible shape it should be adjusted once.  The opening or “gap” should be just large enough to slide over your hand while putting it on and not fall off while wearing it.
