The Cage Bracelet

The classic cuff has taken a modernist turn, resurfacing in a fresh, pared-down form. Some call this new style of jewelry the cage bracelet, a reference to its bars, which suggest a traditional cuff without the heaviness. Highly versatile, cage bracelets go with anything — from jeans to an evening dress — so you can easily make one part of your signature look. Here are a few examples. ELIZABETH AND JAMES: This one, in gold plate with white topaz accents, is by Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen. If you still think of them as the twins from “Full House,” look again. With two collections, The Row and Elizabeth and James, the Olsen sisters have established themselves as serious and sophisticated designers. JULES SMITH: The Americana bracelet, in solid brass, is highly affordable as well as stylish. AURELIE BIDERMANN: Five connected bands in gold-plated brass, the Esteban Cuff comes from one of the hottest jewelry designers around. And like the other two, it makes a strong, contemporary statement, proving that you don’t need a lot of bling to show your worth. —Lola Ehrlich
