Completed in 1937, the Golden Gate is a suspension bridge spanning the Golden Gate Strait, connecting San Francisco with Marin County. It is listed as one of the Wonders of the Modern World and is an internationally recognized symbol for San Francisco. The cuff itself mirrors the design of the 746' tall towers that carry the weight of the cables and roadway below.
Inspired by her travels and by the bond a bridge makes between the communities it spans, designer Betsy Cross brings us the Bridge Cuff Collection. Each cuff is a celebration of the bridge’s unique elements and structural beauty. Etched on the inside you’ll find the year the bridge was completed and its geographic coordinates.
Materials: Available in oxidized brass or oxidized silver plated brass. Year built and geographic coordinates encoded on inside surface.
Made by hand in our Portland, Oregon studio.

Raw brass and silver plate will tarnish naturally. On raw brass, tarnish can be removed with a polishing cloth. To clean plated metal, try a squirt of Windex on a soft, non-abrasive cloth.
You'll get more life out of your cuff if you put it on and remove it properly. Click to watch our how-to video about this.
