Almost anyone can wear any bracelet without it meaning anything. The bracelets and jewelry we wear, however, convey subtle messages. There are larger patterns when one takes a step back and looks at all the types of people who purchase different bracelets. Here are the most popular bracelet types and what messages they send about the person who wears them.
These bracelets are a single inflexible ring. Originating as a traditional piece worn by women in South Asia, you’ll commonly find this bracelet worn by people who like simplicity but want to add a little extra flair to an outfit.
Cuff bracelets are wide or thick bracelets that do not close but simply rest on the wrist. They fit tightly around your hand but can be adjusted according to what is comfortable. The Cuff bracelet is a strong, solid piece. It conveys the message of rigidity, but also of being able to open up, as shown by the opening of the bracelet.
Link bracelets are made from linking several pieces of similar jewelry. Perfect for a subtle, practical look. These pieces suggest professionalism. While any other piece can also be worn with a business outfit, the link bracelet has a neat, practical appearance that draws a practical person to purchase it.
At the 1987 U.S. Open, tennis Star Chris Everet lost her bracelet when its clasp broke mid-game. She famously stopped to ask the officials for a time out so she could find it. All bracelets of that type became known as tennis bracelets. Also, known as the diamond line bracelet, it is made up of a symmetrical pattern of diamonds linked together. It can be worn with anything from a sporty look to a fancy dinner outfit. Suggests athleticism and boldness as represented by the occasions it is often worn.
Charm bracelets are usually plain bracelets to which the wearer adds trinkets that have personal significance to their own life. Charms bracelets suggest an introspective personality. You also wear your heart on your sleeve—or in this case, your wrist. They also convey sentimentality and meaning.
