What kinds of bracelets are there?

1. Cuffs

Cuffs are shaped with an open section allowing you to slide them on through the side of your wrist. Cuffs are not adjustable, but they fit snugly on the wrist, and come in various sizes. Thin cuffs look incredible when stacked.

2. Bangles

Bangles are part of a family of rigid bracelets. They come in sleek and wide designs with precious metals and can sometimes feature encrusted gems and twisted variations. Bangles are show-stoppers — every time you move your arm, they will reflect a gorgeous sparkle!

3. Chain

These feature pliable and interconnected links in different sizes and shapes resembling woven patterns of thin and delicately intertwined metals. Bet on chains with charms and delicate links; they will always add a soft air to your looks.

4. Leather

While we have seen passing trends with textured bracelets, leather has always kept a special place in all hearts. Leather bracelets are often complemented with gold and silver details making bold statements. Look spectacular with a leather bracelet!
Chain Types

Bracelets come in many types of chains. Let's take a look at the most common ones.

Lovers of practicality prefer this chain. Cable chains are considered exceptionally durable and are used both for bracelets and necklaces. The links are oval and resemble joined eights. The larger the link, the more attention they catch!

What is a Tennis bracelet?

A subtype of bracelets that gets a category of their own, tennis bracelets are lustrous bracelets with diamond sequences and snug fit.

The term was essentially introduced into jewelry fashion in 1987 by the American tennis player Christine Evert. She had her diamond bracelet broken during a game—and the episode caught everyone's attention.

Recognized also as a fashion star, the repeated Grand Slam winner set out the trend and later even claimed to be winning thanks to her exquisite diamond bracelet talisman.

Since then, precious bracelets inlaid with noble stones started being called tennis bracelets. As usual, this type of jewelry migrated from famous stars to everyday life. .


How to measure the wrist
for a bracelet?

You can measure your wrist with a measuring tape, a paper strip, or any thread.
First, wrap your wrist with it, and mark where the ends of the tape or paper strip intersect. A measuring tape will immediately show the numbers. If you use a strip of paper, place it on top of a ruler.

A bracelet has to feel comfortable: it should neither be too tight nor slide over your hand. The exact size is at your discretion, but it is more convenient for someone to wear a bracelet on the loose side than a tight-fitting bracelet.

If you choose a bracelet in the form of a cuff or bangle (without a clasp). Please, measure the widest part of your palm with a measuring tape or use a paper strip and measure it with a ruler, and you are all set!!


How to stack bracelets?
