Unique pieces for every outfit
What’s the best way to accessorize this season's three-quarter-length sleeve? With a bracelet of course!
Spring and summer collections are always filled with bangles, and nowadays, it’s the more the merrier. Try chunky silver bangles and gold bangles with hammered textures and polished surfaces, or bright yellow, pink and orange Lucite bracelets to add a fresh and distinctive style to your sun dresses, summer blouses and cropped pants.
Cuffs are perhaps among the most elegant bracelets in vogue right now, and they’ll see you through every season’s trends. As seen on the red carpets, cuff bracelets are stand-alone pieces that couple Grace Kelly's style with a lot of playful fun! Open patterns, such as leaves or crosshatching on a great diamond bracelet will glam you up like any celebrity, but you can also try more affordable looks in Lucite or wood for your casual events.
For those of us whose jewelry budgets don't quite stretch to the bobbles of Harry Winston, Cartier and Neil Lane, take heart! The inspiration we find on the red carpet can be found online, where it’s easy to get great looks for less. Look for wholesale jewelry retailers or deep discounts on pieces that might be less affordable in your local jewelry store.
If you’re still not ready to break the bank on diamond-studded tennis bracelets and the like, remember less expensive or imitation gemstones still have sparkle! In the right pieces no one will know the difference, and in the end, real or fake doesn’t really matter. The important thing is not the cost, but finding a piece that suits your personal style and leaves you feeling like the belle of any ball.
