In these hard times, fashion, too, imitates life. Silhouettes are slimmer, colors are darker, and accessories have don’t-mess-with-me attitude. We can’t help but feel a little bit stronger with this jagged cuff on our wrist. And we also can’t help but admire its raw beauty, regardless of how rough it may appear on the surface. Amethyst corsage cuff by Melissa Jay Manning, $750; Marissa Collections.
