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: Silver plated brass.
Silver plate will tarnish naturally. To clean plated metal, try a squirt of Windex on a soft, non-abrasive cloth.
