Crush Cuffs are cloth bracelets given by admirers to their crush with the admirer's names embroidered on them. If the admirer's crush returns the love, he or she wears the bracelet to show everyone. They are made from fabric and come in multiple colors, the known colors being black and periwinkle. According to Dex, people never take them off. People wear them before they register as a way of asking the Matchmakers to pair them, although this does not actually influence their decision.
