Bracelets are the easy to wear fashion accessory very few women if any grow up without wearing. Bracelets are the ideal jewellery gift and very easy to choose.
Very few women grow up without owning and wearing at least one bracelet, most women have several bracelets.
How To Choose Your Bracelet Size?
As a rule of thumb, always buy bracelets that are 1 to 2 centimetres (1/2 to 3/4 inch) larger than the size of your wrist, this way your bracelet will sit comfortably. You do not want a bracelet that is too loose or else it will slide up and down your arm however, too tight and your bracelet will be uncomfortable and you wont want to wear it all day.
How are Bracelets attached?
Bracelets are securely worn on your wrist in the same way as a chain or necklace. The most popular style of clasp for bracelets is the lobster clasp, named for its resemblance of a lobsters claw. These are easily attached and very secure so you can play tennis or go for a swim with your bracelet on and not have to worry about losing it.
Identity Bracelets or ID Bracelets
Traditionally, identity bracelets provided a very elegant and immediate reference as to any possible condition, allergies or needs you may have in an emergency. With engraveable ID bracelets you are not restricted simply to medical information as the sterling silver tag comes untouched and is able to be personalised in any way you like. ID bracelets make ideal personalised gifts and almost any jeweller will be able to engrave your personal message.
Before You Buy Bracelets Online
After deciding on the style of bracelet to purchase, for example a Belcher Chain Bracelet, you should consider the metal you would like the bracelet to be made of. At The Jewellery Shop we prefer sterling silver bracelets because of the quality and elegance without the big price tag. You may however prefer gold bracelets, or get carried away with a diamond bracelet instead. It really is your preference and you should consider how each metal will compliment your own skin tone.
Next ensure you are comfortable with the length of bracelet you wish to buy. Measure your wrist circumference and compare it to the length stated in your online jewellery store.
