Ladies Fashion Bracelets Types

There are many kinds of bracelets women love to flaunt on their wrists. The most common ones are listed below.

Beaded Bracelets: These bracelets are one of the funkiest fashion accessories any woman can own. Beads of all shapes, sizes, materials, and colors are strung with metal wire, elastic, or silken thread. Beaded bracelets are chosen on the basis of color co-ordination with women's attire, or other accessories.

Button bracelets: These bracelets are made by stringing buttons onto stretchy cord. Buttons may also be strung onto elastic or crocheted together. Plastic/wooden buttons are the most commonly used variety. Vintage buttons and buttons studded with glass/semiprecious stones are also used to make ethnic button bracelets.
Memory bracelets: These bracelets are quite interesting, because they are available in two kinds. The first kind refers to bracelets which carry a small picture frame into which pictures of a loved one can be inserted. The second kind refers to bracelets which are made from a special wire called 'memory wire'. Memory wire lends the bracelets an ability to revert to their original shape even after being contorted. Memory bracelets do not have closures. Both bracelets mentioned above are available strung with beads, covered with felt, or studded with stones.

Charm bracelets: These bracelets are quite popular among the younger generation of women. However, there is no age bar when it comes to fashion, right? Charm bracelets are available in two forms.
  • Traditional charm bracelets which have little pendants dangling from metal loops. The charms may be available in different sizes and fun shapes like animals, birds, flowers, alphabets, stars, hearts, leaves, bells etc. Charms are also available in the form of plastic/wooden beads, lightweight metal, and little stone studs.

  • Italian charm bracelets are made of rectangles interlocked with each other. Flat Italian charms are snapped into the rectangular links. The charms can be replaced and re-arranged with other designs, alphabets etc. There are a number of charms to choose from.
Custom-made bracelets: These bracelets are made to order by the wearer herself, or loved ones who wish to create an elegant utility gift. Manufacturers take note of all the key specifications like color, size, choice of materials/charms etc. and the bracelet is created. Custom made bracelets give the wearer a chance to express themselves creatively.

Tennis bracelets: These bracelets originated in the world of fine jewelry, and gradually found their way into fashion jewelry as well. Tennis bracelets consist of a single string of synthetic stones in square settings. They are held to the wrist with metal clasps.

These bracelets gained popularity when a famous tennis player went looking for her lost diamond bracelet anxiously in the tennis court. Today, tennis bracelets continue to be a favorite piece of costume jewelry. Only the diamonds have been replaced with synthetic stones, and women needn't be tennis players just to wear them!

Designer Ladies Fashion Bracelets

Bracelets are available in different styles and designs. They are held to the wrist with clasps, snap closures, chain/hook closures, magnetic closures, and tasseled closures.

Manufacturers are experimenting with colors and ideas while setting new trends in the world of fashion. There are bracelets with a small watch as the centerpiece. A band of colored canvas with snap closure, or a couple of shells strung onto silken thread with tasseled ends make for some chic costume jewelry. Bracelets that spell the wearer's name, or the name of a loved one are also popular.
