A gold bracelet, bangle, or cuff is a luxurious adornment for the arm. Unlike gold-plated pieces or gold-filled costume jewelry, real gold bracelets combine the wealth of King Tut with the sex appeal of Cleopatra. In many cultures, gold bangles are the only way for a woman to keep an eye on the currency that belongs only to her.

By the 20th century, diamonds and gemstones were routinely set onto gold bracelets. Arts and Crafts bracelets used stones sparingly, while the gold in Art Deco bracelets was often obscured by the ice attached to them. After World War II, Mid-century Modern designer Jean Schlumberger created signature gold-and-enamel bangles for Tiffany’s, which were such favorites of Jacqueline Kennedy that people called them "Jackie bracelets."
