Too many, never enough? Or just a single one carefully chosen to match what you wear?
Bracelets have a rather unique positioning in the jewellery world: as they adorn your wrists, they move (or, rather, slide) along with you throughout the day. No other jewellery experiences - and expresses - as much movement as bracelets.
So let’s take a look at how many bracelets you should wear and when…
A Single Statement: The Hero Piece
The gesture of putting on a single bracelet is simple, straight-forward and almost automatic. It is an expression of clarity.
If it’s a workday, then you’ll go for a dainty bracelet that won’t get in the way. As you’re fastening it around your wrist, you’re acknowledging that you’re all set up and ready to start.
When it’s a special occasion, you’ll enjoy a more intricate design, one that will openly display your style. And even if that design has rows of gems and diamonds that catch the Sun’s rays or sharpen the glow of ambient lighting, the intentional choice of wearing a single bracelet still conveys an open and confident disposition.
The Duo: Soft & Hard
Exciting things happen when you pair two bracelets together! You get the opportunity to mix textures, colours and shapes, all while creating a “no jewellery” jewellery look.
For example, a bangle and a dainty bracelet will play well together. And if the latter is actually a chain link necklace that you’ve repurposed as a bracelet by wrapping it around your wrist twice, then you’ve created a focus point that precludes the need for any other jewellery.
The Infinite: Dainty Layered
Just like with necklaces, wearing upwards of two together can be a straight-forward way to have some fun and enjoy a maximalist look.
Unlike necklaces, it isn’t possible to separate them by length. So you’re going to have to pay extra attention to prevent them from snagging or getting tangled. The pay-off will be a fun distraction from the world and endless styling options to rotate through.
