Bracelet Styles

A bracelet can add class and sophistication to any ensemble, taking a smart look one step better. Although often worn as a fashionable accessory, bracelets can also express solidarity with a culture, group, or cause. Whether subtle or extravagant, formal or casual, this versatile piece of jewelry can reflect your personal style with flair.

One of the most popular jewelry gifts, bracelets are often given as tokens of friendship, affection, and support. A stylish bracelet makes a perfect present for a birthday, anniversary, Mother's Day, or another significant event. Some modern couples exchange bracelets as engagement or wedding gifts to one another.

Top Trending Bracelets

Diamond

Nothing sparkles like diamonds, and when they’re encircling your wrist they make a simple but unforgettable statement. Diamond bracelets can vary widely in carat weight and quality. Although it can be tempting to purchase the largest diamonds at the lowest price, we recommend focusing primarily on the quality of the stones. For optimum brilliance and beauty, choose a bracelet with diamonds that are graded no less than I in color and SI2 in clarity.

Tennis bracelet

Tennis

The most popular style is the diamond line bracelet, commonly known as a "tennis bracelet." The in-line diamond bracelet is named for the 1987 incident in which women's tennis star Chris Evert stopped a game to collect the diamonds from her broken bracelet. This discreetly elegant accessory has been worn by tennis players – and their fans – ever since.

The tennis bracelet is a classic, simple setting, designed to emphasize the innate beauty of the diamonds. Other popular diamond bracelet styles include bezel settings and diamond bangles, both of which achieve a chic, contemporary look.

Gemstone

If you’re looking for a fresh alternative to traditional diamonds, other gemstones make a colorful and somewhat more casual impression. Ranging from simple to elaborate, gemstone bracelets can be entirely made up of one stone type, or may intersperse colors or cuts of different precious stones. Presenting a bracelet set with the precious stone representing her birth month is a thoughtful gesture.

A popular variation of the classic gemstone bracelet alternates diamonds with colored gemstones, creating a dramatic contrast between the brilliant fire of diamonds and the vivid colors of the gemstones.

Bangle bracelet

Bangle

Bangle bracelets are meant to be slipped over the hand and onto the wrist. They are usually totally circular, though some styles are made in an incomplete circle that opens at the inner part of the wrist and can be slipped on sideways. Multiple bangles add a fun, fluid accessory and create a soft chiming sound when worn together.

Bangle bracelets are traditional accessories in many parts of the world, including India and South America. With no flexible pieces and no clasp, they are the simplest bracelet style to make. Most bangle bracelets are made of precious metals or glass.

Chain Link

Chain link bracelets, designed to wrap elegantly around the wrist, are characterized by interconnected links. These bracelets often feature a clasp closure, allowing easy wearing and removal. The versatile design of chain link bracelets makes them suitable for both solitary wear and layering with other bracelets, creating a dynamic and personalized look.

These bracelets have a global appeal, with variations seen in numerous cultures. Their construction, involving flexible, interlocking pieces, showcases intricate craftsmanship. Commonly crafted from a range of materials, including precious metals and durable alloys, chain link bracelets are a timeless and adaptable accessory.

Bolo/slider bracelet

Bolo/Slider

Bolo or slider bracelets, known for their adjustable design, feature a sliding clasp that perfectly fits any wrist size. This unique mechanism provides easy wear and removal, adapting seamlessly to the wearer's preference. The design is functional and stylish, making these bracelets a popular choice for their versatility and comfort.

Bolo bracelets are often made with multiple materials, including elegant metals and decorative elements. Their adaptable nature makes them a favored accessory for diverse styles, offering a blend of simplicity and sophistication.

Choosing a Metal Type

Most high-end bracelets are made from precious metals. Whether based on a simple white gold chain or multi-hued strands of gold and platinum, the metal you choose can infuse an ensemble with warmth and elegance, adding a trendy touch or dressing up a casual outfit. If you’re shopping for a bracelet to give as a gift, pay attention to the color of the jewelry the recipient usually wears and look for something that will complement those pieces.
