Created as a tribute to an iconic moment of peaceful resistance, we hope this cuff continues to inspire and motivate. Please read our full statement about this important piece.

The marches on this bridge have played a crucial role in the civil rights movement. Less than five months after the final march, President Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act of 1965 (the act that prohibits racial discrimination in voting) into law.

As a thank you to the efforts put in by those who came before us and in recognition of the work that still needs to be done, we are donating 100% of all profits from this cuff to a social justice non-profit. We are currently donating to Foot Soldiers Park in Selma, AL.

 

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 raw brass or silver plated brass.

Measures 7/8" wide in center and 1 1/2" at widest points in back. Adjustable (fits most wrists; for men and women).

How we grade Recast jewelry

All Recast items are wonderfully wearable, but may show signs of previous use or repair. Fear not–there’s still plenty of life left in each and every Recast piece! Learn more here.

Great Condition

Great Condition: Jewelry may show minimal signs of wear, but will be free of tarnish and dents. Recast pieces in great condition will have their original shape, oxidization or paint.

Good Condition

Good Condition: Jewelry shows more noticeable signs of wear. Recast pieces in good condition may not be fully oxidized or painted. Pieces may show signs of tarnish, dents, or may be slightly misshapen.

Recast FAQs

We grade jewelry in three tiers: Scrap, Good, and Great. For items deemed Scrap, we issue a flat $2 credit per item and recycle the jewelry. Items graded as Good receive a 20% store credit, and items graded as Great receive a 40% store credit. Store credits are based on the retail value of the piece. Our grading decisions are final and when you send items into us, you are agreeing to accept the amount of credit that our grading process yields.

Bring it to us! As long as it's Betsy & Iya, we'll issue a store credit for every piece, either $2 for Scrap condition or 20% for Good condition. You’d be surprised what we can fix up, and if we can't fix it to our standards for resale, we'll recycle the metal and you’ll still get the $2 Scrap credit.

About a week and a half or so. After you request your Recast Buy Back kit, we’ll mail it to you. This takes 3-5 days (and sometimes less). Once you receive the kit, you’ll box everything up and send it back to us. We’ll usually receive your box within 3-5 days and issue your store credit 1-2 business days later.

We do not buy back jewelry in person due to the time our grading process takes. You are welcome to bring it into the store to save on shipping costs/time/emissions, but we will not be able to look at it while you wait. Otherwise, initiate your buy back by requesting a free Recast Buy Back kit and mailing your pieces to us.

Nope! Store credit is issued to a gift card, which never expires, can be used across multiple purchases, and is linked to your email so it will never get lost.

No. If you are interested in cash, you may have luck with a traditional consignment shop.

Most of our items have a maker’s mark stamped somewhere on them. For necklaces, look for a brass or silver tag. For earrings or necklaces without tags, examine the focal pieces. We’ll typically stamp the side of the piece that faces your body when it’s being worn. For rings and bracelets, check the inside surface. If you’re unsure, feel free to send photos to support {at} betsyandiya.com and we’ll be happy to let you know.

We won't issue a store credit for jewelry we didn't make, but we'll be happy to recycle or donate the items for you.

We can't issue a store credit, but we'll be happy to mail it back to you if you pay the return postage. Otherwise, we’ll recycle or donate the items.

Nope! Many of the pieces in this program aren't even cast pieces in the first place, but no matter the initial methods of production, we're using the word Recast for its more commonly known meaning, like "her doctoral thesis has been recast for the general reader." The doctoral thesis had already fulfilled its intended purpose and by recasting it, the PhD candidate allows the thesis to reach a new audience and fulfill a different purpose. We're doing this, but with jewelry.
