Learn all there is to know about buying the perfect bracelet! From tennis bracelets and charm bracelets to bangles and cuffs, there are so many ways to rock some wrist wear.
These days, charm bracelets come in a variety of styles, but a classic charm bracelet is a simple link bracelet in which charms can easily be clipped onto each link. The perfect gift for a young woman starting out her adult life, with promising memories and milestones ahead that will make the perfect addition to her charm bracelet.
Bangles are often made of a thin piece of metal that slide onto the wrist. They are neither flexible nor do they have a clasp. Bangles can be worn alone or stacked with other bangles to create a more dramatic look. They can also be created with diamonds or gemstones or made with no stone at all.
Cuffs are often thought of as a thick bangle, making them the ultimate statement bracelet. They can come in any design from delicate diamond detailing or filigree to chunky and bold colorful gemstones. Cuffs can be made from a variety of materials from leather to plastic, silver to gold.
Tips for Buying Bracelets as a Gift
- Bracelets come in a variety of lengths. It will be a good idea to know the approximate size of the recipient’s wrist.
- Visit his or her jewelry box. Knowing what kinds of bracelets he or she already has will give you a good idea of their style – or what they might be missing.
- Know their style. A diamond tennis bracelet is a great idea for someone who dresses up more often, while a bangle or similar fashion-forward bracelet is a great idea for someone who lives to accessorize with bold jewelry looks.
- Allergies? As with any jewelry gift purchase, make sure your recipient does not have allergies to certain metals or materials that irritate the skin.
