Everything You Need To Know About Bangles & Cuff Bracelets

Bangles and cuff bracelets have always been an essential part of the fashion-conscious woman's accessory collection. They're timeless, versatile, and can instantly transform any outfit from drab to fab. However, when it comes to choosing the right style, things can get a bit overwhelming. That's where our new cuff bracelets and bangles collection comes in. In this definitive guide, we'll cover everything you need to know about cuff bracelets and bangles, from what they are to how to wear them.

1. What is a Cuff Bangle?

A cuff bangle is a type of bracelet that is circular and has an opening on one side. Unlike traditional bangles, cuff bracelets are not completely closed, which makes them easy to put on and take off. They are also usually wider than traditional bangles, which makes them more of a statement piece.

2. What is the Difference Between A Bangle And A Bracelet?

The main difference between a bangle and a bracelet is the way they are worn. Bangles are circular and slip onto the wrist, whereas bracelets typically have a clasp or fastening mechanism. Bangles are usually wider and more rigid than bracelets, which can be made from various materials and can be either delicate or chunky.

3. How To Wear Cuff Bangle

Cuff bangles are incredibly versatile and can be worn in many different ways. One popular way to wear them is to stack them together. Layering a few cuff bracelets of varying widths and textures can add interest to an outfit and give a bohemian vibe. For a more streamlined look, wearing a single cuff bangle can be an elegant way to add a touch of sophistication to any outfit.

4. Can Bangles Be Made Smaller?

If your bangles are too big, it is possible to make them smaller. However, it's important to note that not all bangles can be resized, and some may be more challenging than others. Cuff bangles, on the other hand, can be adjusted by gently squeezing or widening the opening to fit your wrist comfortably.

5. How Loose Should A Bangle Be?

When it comes to bangles, it's essential to get the sizing right. Bangles should be snug enough to stay in place but loose enough to move freely. As a general rule, you should be able to fit a finger between the bangle and your wrist. This will prevent the bangle from slipping off and also ensure that it doesn't feel too tight or uncomfortable.

6. How Loose Should A Bangle Be?

Cuff bracelets can be worn on any occasion, from formal events to casual outings. They look great on bare arms or paired with long-sleeved tops or dresses. Depending on the style of the bracelet, they can be worn alone or stacked with other pieces of jewellery.

7. Types Of Cuff Bracelets

There are many different types of cuff bracelets available, from simple and understated to bold and intricate. Wide cuff bracelets are a popular style, and they come in various widths and designs. Some cuff bracelets feature intricate detailing, such as embossed patterns, while others are sleek and minimalistic. Handmade silver cuff bracelets and designer cuff bracelets are also popular, and they often feature unique designs and high-quality materials.

8. Can I Mix Silver & Gold Cuff Bracelets?

Absolutely! Mixing metals has become a huge trend for 2023, and it's an excellent way to add interest to your jewellery collection. Silver cuff bangles and gold cuff bangles can be mixed and matched to create a unique and stylish look. Alternatively, bangles can be layered with other pieces of jewellery, such as chain bracelets, to create a more eclectic look.
