4 Types of Bracelet You Need to Know to Complete Your Look

Finding the right jewelry for any outfit can be challenging. With so many styles to choose from, women often wonder which set of earrings they should select or which bracelet to pair with which outfit. There are four types of bracelets every woman should be familiar with and when each should be worn. 

Bangle Bracelets 
The bangle bracelet remains a classic. This solid jewelry piece features no opening or clasp. A woman simply slips it on her wrist and goes about her day. Multiple bangle bracelets may be worn simultaneously if they are thin. However, for wide bangles, it's best to limit them to one or two. Young women often choose this bracelet style thanks to the typically inexpensive cost and the versatility of the jewelry. In addition, bangles can be mixed and matched multiple ways to allow for even more choices when they are combined. The ideas are truly endless.

Charm Bracelets
Charm bracelets consist of chain and several trinkets that are added to this cord. With traditional charm bracelets, the chain or cord is gold, sterling silver, stainless steel, or another metal. In this type of jewelry, charms dangle from the chain or cord.

An Italian charm bracelet, in contrast, is a link bracelet. Small glass rectangles are then inserted into the links, and the charms with either bracelet tend to reflect one or more aspects of the wearer's personality. However, the Italian charm bracelet is smaller than its traditional counterpart, as the charms do not dangle. Individuals need to consider both styles, as there are times when dangling charms can be a danger to the wearer. When this is the case, it's best to go with the Italian version. 

Cuff Bracelets
Wider than bangles, cuff bracelets easily slip onto the wrist or arm. Once they are in place, cuff bangles fit tightly. Women often wear these pieces on their wrists, but jewelry makers now offer versions that sit much higher on the arm. Typically, cuff bracelets are made of leather, fabric, or metal.

Cuff bracelets have been around for centuries. Ancient Egyptians have been recognized for their jewelry choices, and the bracelets remain popular around the world today. However, take care when wearing a cuff bracelet. Because this item serves as a statement piece, other jewelry should be kept to a minimum if worn at all.

Tennis Bracelets
For formal occasions, consider investing in a tennis bracelet. The name of this jewelry piece comes from the tennis player Chris Evert. She chose to wear an expensive diamond bracelet during one of her matches and the clasp failed. The match had to be halted until the diamonds scattered across the court could be collected.

Today, tennis bracelets are easily identifiable by their setting. They consist of precious stones set in a metal bracelet and the item is designed to be worn tightly around the wrist. They are comfortable, flexible, and thin, making them perfect for everyday wear for those who desire to don this item daily. However, many choose to save them for more formal events.

Never assume these are the only types of bracelets a person can choose. There are several other styles available, and all should be considered when searching for the perfect accessories. However, when only one item can be purchased, consider obtaining one of these four types. This is one purchase you won't regret.
