Bracelets: Simply Elegant

Bracelets are possibly the least talked about jewelry item around. Much more emphasis is put on necklaces, rings and earrings over the often overlooked bracelets. Yet they add a touch of elegance and charm to the wearer.

Choosing bracelets

When choosing designs, consider what clothing you will be wearing. If you will be wearing a sheer or delicate material, consider the roughness of the bracelets and opt for pieces that will not snag or catch on the cloth.

Consider the mobility of the bracelets. If you are going to a function where you don’t want attention brought to your arm every time you move it, choose a type that won’t freely move up and down your arm.

For business purposes, stable bracelets are more appropriate and less likely to get in the way. For social events, a dynamically flowing piece of jewelry can be fun and flirty.


Wearing bracelets is another way to add creativity to accessorizing. You can choose to wear one that matches your earrings and necklace to complete a set. You can choose something complimentary but different.

If wearing a watch is a necessity for you, look for the many types of bracelets with built-in watches. With the popularity of cell phones, watches are becoming less necessary since most cell phones have an easily viewable clock. Some have pearl straps, and are a practical but beautiful solution to keeping time while wearing your gorgeous freshwater pearl neclace.

If you have overlooked bracelets in the past, perhaps now is the time to consider the possibilities!
