Cuffs are a favorite here at Mile High Style, and this turquoise resin tribal spike cuff almost renders us speechless. Equally impressive is the price, a steal at $195 which, for Barneys, often doesn’t afford much in the way of options. This cuff is the best of them.
UPDATE: Same cuff, different site, better price. Find it here.

Cuff bracelets are among my most favorite and treasured pieces of costume jewelry. I find that if an outfit calls for only one piece of jewelry, a chunky gold cuff is always the way to go. Here are my three favorite cuffs in high, medium and low price points.
The Hermes Collier de Chien bracelet is the gold standard. Designed to combine elegant and classic with edgy (no small feat), this piece appears on celebrities, in fashion editorials, and on the wrists of mere mortals who know that a grand spent on this kind of costume jewelry trumps anything ‘real’ you can get for the same price point.
Known (appropriately) as the Helen of Troy cuff by costume jewelry designer Erickson Beamon, this piece was often photographed and worn adorning both wrists in true historical reverence. A modern girl should wear it single and with sleeves short enough to show off.
The price is right on this brass cuff from Anthropologie. At $138, I think it’s among the best available of all statement jewelry under $150.
