Spanning the Willamette River, the Steel Bridge connects the Rose Quarter on the East side of Portland with Chinatown on the West. Completed in 1912, it is the second oldest vertical-lift bridge in America and one of the most multimodal bridges in the world, supporting road traffic and light rail on the upper deck and railroad, bicycle, and pedestrian traffic on the lower deck.
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: Brass, silver plated, or gold plated*. Year built and geographic coordinates encoded on inside surface.

*Please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping on gold plated cuffs.
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.
