When I saw this Julie Nolan cuff on Catbird months ago I knew it was written in the stars that I had to have it. I'm a textbook Gemini (who more or less follows horoscopes for giggles) and love that these Brooklyn-made brass cuffs (in silver and gold plate too) let you somewhat personalize your arm party. Even better, the brass wears as you wear it, developing a one-of-a-kind patina that is constantly morphing.
For just $50, you get a rather detailed piece of jewelry: hand-drilled holes mimic sign patterns from a vintage Swiss calendar (with the larger holes signaling the brightest stars in the constellation), and inside the cuff is a hand-stamped abbreviation of the sign.
