Were you as mesmerized as we were by Beyoncé’s golden gown and accessories at the Grammys? While some are fixated on her custom lace dress by Peter Dundas, or her goddess-worthy headpiece by House of Malakai, we’re in love with Bey’s matching gold cuffs by jewelry designer Ariana Boussard-Reifel. Let’s take a closer look.

Inspired by adornments from tribal and indigenous cultures, Boussard-Reifel’s Despina Cuff features an organic design with high polish on one side and natural texture on the other. The chunky statement bracelet, which Beyoncé’s stylist stacked with bangles on each wrist, is actually made of brass. It is one of the pieces from the designer’s debut “Invisible Cities” collection.

Boussard-Reifel’s jewelry is designed and fabricated in NYC using only recycled and sustainable materials. The Despina Cuff is available for $550 (each) on her website: www.Marteau.co.

As OBJ fans know, we’ve been tracking the matching gold cuffs trend for some time, ever since an iconic 18K pair by Van Cleef & Arpels fetched a record-setting $162,500 at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills, CA. This month, the fierce and fabulous Naomi Campbell wears a similar pair by VC&A on the cover of the March issue of Town & Country. The fashion and jewelry credits on page 158 reveal that these spectacular gold cuffs are valued at $35,700 each.
