Type of bracelet style

Bracelets are definitely a fashion statement that can complete any outfit.  

There are so many different styles of bracelets available each with its own unique charm.

Adjustable bracelets

An adjustable bracelet is perfect for anyone who wants to customize the fit, making sure it's not too loose or too tight.

They're perfect for stacking, so you can mix and match different colours and styles to create a unique look.

You can also find adjustable bracelets in different materials, such as leather, and metal, or with colourful braided chords such as our stunning 18ct White Gold Diamond and Red Enamel Evil Eye Adjustable Bracelet

 Not only are they stylish, but adjustable bracelets are also a fabulous choice for a gift because they can fit most wrist sizes without the need for custom measurements.

So why not add a few adjustable bracelets to your collection and give your wrists a little extra sparkle?

Bangle bracelets

For a more formal look, a bangle bracelet can definitely elevate your wrist game.

Bangle bracelets are the perfect accessory to add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any outfit.

The different styles and types of bangles available make it easy to find one that suits your individual style. 

And for those who prefer cooler hues, a white gold bangle bracelet is sure to make a statement.

Whether you're dressing up for a night out or adding a bit of flair to your everyday attire, bangle bracelets are a timeless piece that never goes out of style.

They come in single or multi-layered designs that add an elegant touch to any ensemble.

Chain bracelets

Lastly, a chain bracelet can add a simple yet chic touch to your look.

These stylish pieces of jewellery have been around for centuries, and it's not hard to see why they're still so popular today.  

With so many different styles to choose from, there's a chain bracelet perfect for everyone.

Whether you prefer chunky links or delicate chains, there's a bracelet out there that will perfectly complement your style.

They're also incredibly versatile, meaning you can dress them up for a night out or wear them to work without looking out of place.

Plus, they make for the perfect gift - whether you're treating yourself or someone special.

This elegant chain bracelet also has a thoughtful extra link added to get a more bespoke fit.

Whichever bracelet style you choose, just make sure it matches your personality and style sense.

Types of bracelet clasp

When it comes to bracelets, the clasp is just as important as the design itself.

You don't want your stylish accessory slipping off your wrist after all!

Two types of clasps that are commonly used are the lobster clasp and the adjustable clasp.

The lobster clasp is named for its resemblance to a lobster's claw and is a common choice for many types of jewellery, including bracelets.

It has a spring mechanism that opens and closes the clasp, making it easy to put on and take off.  

On the other hand, the adjustable clasp allows you to customize the fit of your bracelet.  

It usually features a sliding mechanism, which you can adjust to find your perfect fit.  

Both options have their benefits and are great choices, depending on the style and function of your bracelet.

Which metal should I choose?

One of the most important questions you might be asking yourself is, "What metal should I choose?"  after all - you want to make sure your bracelet complements your personal style and makes memories for years to come.

Luckily, there are many great options to choose from! Our favourites are white gold, yellow gold, and uber-romantic rose gold!

Each metal has its own unique look and feel, so it really just comes down to personal preference.  

Maybe you're drawn to the classic elegance of yellow gold, or maybe the modern chic of white gold is more your style.

Or, if you prefer a nod to fashion, the glamorous blush tones of rose gold is a perfect choice!

How to size a bracelet

So measuring for a bracelet may not be something you’ve thought about! But it’s a good idea if you want to ensure a great fit!

Firstly, measure your wrist with a tape measure or a piece of string and mark where the ends meet.

Next, add half an inch to an inch (depending on how loose or snug you prefer your bracelet) and voila, that's your bracelet size!  

Another hack is to use a bracelet sizing tool, which can be easily found online or at jewellery stores.

And finally, if you're buying a bracelet as a gift and don't have access to the recipient's wrist, go for an adjustable bracelet or opt for a standard size like 7 inches, which tends to fit most people.

How To Choose The Perfect Bracelet - To end

After taking the time to think through all your options, you’re sure to find something that will go perfectly with any outfit, a bracelet for a special occasion or even as your signature piece!

Whether you need to measure a wrist, prefer a flexible option, or want to shop for a one-size-fits-all gift, there are so many beautiful options to choose from!

And don’t forget about the materials! White gold will bring sophistication, yellow gold adds a timeless sparkle, and rose gold is perfect for creating an eye-catching statement.

Take your time and find what works best for you.
