Bracelet is a piece of ornament which is worn by men and women around their wrists. Ancient men as well as modern men are often seen sporting bracelets. In earlier time bracelets were worn by men to ward off evil, however, for modern men it’s all about making a style statement.
Origin and History
The word bracelet traces back its origin from a Greek word “brachile” and an old French word “bracel” which means “of the arm” or “arm-guard”. Earlier, ornaments were not as refined in their look, because they were hand made using not so sophisticated tools. The materials used to make bracelets in earlier times ranged from bones, stones, shells, copper, bronze and other non-precious metals.
In the present era one can find bracelets made of wide range of precious metals like gold, silver, platinum etc…Studded with precious gemstones like diamonds, rubies, and emeralds.
Of all, nothing can beat the classic diamond bracelet. It is one such accessory that goes well with formal, casual and ethnic wear. The dazzling diamonds accentuate the delicate wrist of a woman. They are an epitome of modern simplicity and yet have a strong presence.
Here are some designs that you can explore before picking these trinkets for your loved ones or for yourself!
Bangle Design:Bangle designed bracelets are inflexible in nature and these can be simple slip ons or hinged style. Typically these are round or oval in shape, but these days asymmetrical patterns are catching up in trend.
Bangle model diamond bracelets are made of either 18K or 22K solid gold and are engraved with simple designs. Universal designs of flowers, leaves, heart are most common, but what’s trending these days are bangle model bracelets which have some kind of geometrical shape to it and that’s embedded with diamonds and other precious stones. This model is widely loved as it serves a dual purpose of bangle and bracelet.

The length of the chain links can be adjusted based on the size of the wrist. Various shapes and model of the charms are prevalent these days. It could be simple hearts, lock and key, alphabets or even animal figurines.
