I stumbled onto your lovely site and appreciate your point of view! My sterling jewelry company was created in memory of my mother who encouraged me to find silver linings in all life events. She always wore an estate cuff bracelet from her great grandmother and so I’ve always loved the simplicity and great taste of a sterling cuff. Now I have her cuff, the one that inspired me, but I can’t bear to wear it yet. It may be a tradition better suited to leap-frog generations. I may need to pass it to one of my daughters unworn by me.
