Your next soirée is in sight and you’re ready to dazzle your dinner guests in a classic dress and court shoes combo—but don’t forget to complete your look with jewellery! At MONA you will find a chic selection of bracelets to suit all tastes. Read on to learn about the different styles of women’s bracelets and how they can add polish to your elegant outfits.
A bracelet is a delicate piece of jewellery worn on the wrist. Bangles, however, are crafted from a single, rigid material in a closed circle and can sit loosely on the wrist or higher on the arm for a tighter fit. Cuffs are similar to bangles, but they are designed with a gap and therefore do not close. They can be worn classically on the wrist or on the upper arm.
Choosing which type of women’s bracelet is right for you is mostly down to personal taste. However, you should make sure your chosen piece complements your signature style. If you’re attending a summer party and wearing a flowy maxi dress with an exotic print, accessorise this boho-inspired look with matching jewellery. A perfect choice would be a natural wooden bangle. When it comes to a sleek black evening dress, dial up the glamour with a shimmering gold-toned bracelet.
Women’s bracelets are available in a myriad of materials and designs. Here is a short summary:
Bracelets can be layered to create a statement look and there are many other styles to choose from—for example, a braided chain bracelet consists of multiple interwoven strands of precious metal, and a cord bracelet has a modern twisted look.
Alongside classic precious metals like gold and silver, semiprecious stones such as amethyst and rose quartz are a fabulous choice for women’s bracelets. These stones are shaped by hand and often strung on an elastic band, which means the bracelets fit your wrist perfectly and can be taken on and off easily.
Semiprecious stones are available in a variety of colours that will accent your outfits. For example, if you’re attending a spring wedding and are wearing a pastel-coloured floral dress, the pale pink shade of rose quartz will perfectly complement your look. If you’ve chosen a dress in hues of blue, try a women’s bracelet made from lapis lazuli or blue agate.
Whilst glamorous jewellery crafted from 24 carat gold, sparkling diamonds and shimmering pearls may be the perfect addition to awe-inspiring eveningwear, these pieces are not suitable for a shopping trip or a Sunday morning stroll. But that doesn’t mean jewellery shouldn’t add elegance to your everyday outfits—simply choose designs crafted from less expensive materials. Try real 925 sterling silver or freshwater pearls. Both pair perfectly with smart daywear and will add the final flair to a tailored trouser suit.
Accessorise your laid-back look of jeans and trainers with a chic leather bracelet, detailed with a shimmering metal embellishment. Or in the summer months, embrace the warmer weather with bangles crafted from colourful wooden and glass beads.
A must-have piece in every woman’s jewellery box is a charm bracelet. Every charm you add represents a special moment that you’d like to remember: the birth of your children or grandchildren, a once in a lifetime holiday, an anniversary, and so much more.
Are you on the hunt for a present for a loved one? Tell them how much they mean to you with a couples or friendship bracelet. These usually consist of a simple bracelet crafted from gold, silver or steel, with a small symbolic pendant such as a heart or an infinity sign. If you like, you can have your name and your best friend’s name or a meaningful date engraved into the heart.
When it comes to women’s bracelets, there’s so much choice. But where to start? Firstly, you should make sure you select a range of bracelets that vary in price—that way, you’ll always have the perfect piece for any occasion. It’s also a fabulous idea to choose your jewellery based on your complexion:
The key to an effortlessly elegant look is to match the colours of your jewellery. If you’re wearing emerald earrings to bring out the green in your eyes, you should complement this with touches of green on your necklace, bracelet and rings.
