Tiffany Castillo – Creator Director of the Ultimate Cuff
At its core, The Ultimate Cuff believes that fashion and style should not have to be sacrificed for a cost-efficient alternative. While getting ready to attend a wedding, founder and CEO Anne Zacharias knew that her normal Apple Watch® band would not fit in. The designer options cost up to $360, but they still didn’t stand out. The Ultimate Cuff was created to fill that space in the market, to be a line of affordable and stylish jewelry that made a statement. Their cuffs are made out of brass which is then plated with 14k gold, 14k rose gold or silver rhodium, and then each cuff is e-coated to ensure the plating will not wear off. Today along with Creative Director, Tiffany Castillo, the company wants to help women accessorize their favorite smart watch to match their personal style. A cuff for the Fit Bit is coming soon!
