Over the centuries, the likes of firefighters, doctors and crusaders have donned the Maltese cross—originally worn by the Knights of Malta, a religious order on the eponymous island—as a symbol of protection. Today, thanks to Jennifer Creel and Chris Mack, co-creators of the jewelry and accessories label Creel-Mack, the cross is also a fashion statement.

Creel-Mack’s made-to-order Maltese cuffs come in either 14-karat white gold ($600, pictured here) or yellow gold, with pavé crystals. “It’s great for everyday and traveling,” says Creel. “It’s always a real conversation piece.” And while the classically elegant cuffs might not protect you from imminent danger, wearing one will certainly keep you out of the realm of ordinary.
