Types of Bracelet

Cuff

Rigid wide bracelet style accessories, usually from metal, are referred to as cuffs or cuff bracelets. They usually have a clasp which differs them from a bangle. The clasp allows the wearer to fit the cuff over their hand and attach securely. Often made to measure these items often incorporate gemstones and high value metals and intricate detail.

Bangles

Rigid bracelets, usually from metal, wood, or plastic, are referred to as bangles or bangle bracelets. They can be smooth, textured or set with stones. In India, glass bangles are common. Made from ordinary glass that is about 3 to 6 millimetres (1⁄8 to 1⁄4 in) in width, they are worn in groups so that arm movement causes them to make a gracious sound rather like the clinking of wind chimes. In India, it is also common that young children will wear thin gold bangles on their hands and ankles.

Beaded bracelets

Usually made from loose beads with a center hole and connected by a piece of string or elastic band through the holes.

Charm bracelets

A charm bracelet carries personal charms: decorative pendants or trinkets which are signifiers of important things in the wearer’s life.

Link bracelets

Bracelets made from connecting or linking various or similar components or jewelry findings. Link bracelets can be made of a variety of materials including metals and gemstones.

Sports bracelets

The use of colored silicone rubber as a material for producing sports bracelets was popularised from 2003. Their success has led to the silicone bracelet becoming a high cost tool for various awareness, information, and charity campaigns. This can be likened to the use of awareness ribbons for similar purposes. These bracelets are also known as “baller id bands”, “baller bands” or “wristbands”. They can also be referred to as rubber wristbands, silicone wristbands or gel wristbands.

Tennis bracelets

During the 1987 U.S. Open, Chris Evert’s diamond line bracelet fell off onto the court. She stated about this, “I dropped my tennis bracelet”, and since then diamond line bracelets have been called tennis bracelets.
