Stacking Bracelets 101

Deciding how to stack and layer your bracelets can, at times, be overwhelming. There are so many bracelets, bangles, cuffs available…the options are unlimited! Here are some ways to help make the decision easier and make you more confident when rocking your bangle sets!

1. WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL STYLE?

To decide on the style of your personal bracelet stack, think of your own style and personality first. Are you the classy, elegant type of girl or do you prefer cool and laidback outfits? Do you love natural colors or are you more into sparkling and girly stuff? Or are you a combination of the above? Asking yourself these questions is a great way of becoming aware of your own personality and style. Remember: you are unique and your personal bracelet stack should match YOU!

2. NARROW DOWN YOUR OPTIONS.

To narrow down the options for the combination of your choice let’s take a closer look at the style of your soon-to-be-bracelet stack. An important question you’ll want to ask yourself here is: do I want my bracelet stack to match and compliment my wardrobe or do I want it to really stand out and be the eye-catching part of it? This will give you a rough idea of what your bracelet stack will look like.

3. COLOR AND METAL OPTIONS.

Once you have an idea of the stack’s style in mind, it is important to make your decision on a color scheme. We have two main options here: the first one is to choose a specific color and/or metal and stick with it. This option is perfect if you either have a bold color as your all time favorite (like pink or purple) or if you prefer to dress in a specific color theme.

The second option is to mix and match different colors or metals to create your personal bracelet combination. In line with your personal style and the stack’s style you decided on, you can either combine colors of the same color family here or go all bold and crazy by combining different colors with lots of contrast.

Bridal Jewelry–“MADE” OF HONOR!

We checked the statistics, and according to Brides Magazine, the US Census Bureau and other sources, June is still the month of choice for weddings in theUS. To this we say, “Mazel tov!”.

Typically, the bridal jewelry is a family heirloom or a really significant investment piece. This isn’t just a Jewish thing, by the way. When we travel and shop the world for our company, we’ve stood breathless in the presence of traditional Indian wedding jewelry sets (collar, bracelets, earrings, head-piece), for example, ornately rendered in 22 karat yellow gold, and swaying with ruby-drops. Now, THAT’s a fashion statement!

August, September and October also are popular months for stepping beneath the chuppa, tie the knot, jump the broom—choose your metaphor. Our collection includes many items which are ideal for the maid or matron of honor, bridesmaids, flower-girls, ring-bearer and groomsman. But the real hit this season for the bridal party is our new “Looking For…” series of “message” bracelets, ideal for the bridesmaid who is still on the matrimonial market!

These sterling silver chain accessories are sleek, modern, “ID”-style bracelets with a message-plate inscribed with the lady’s priority. The nameplate may read, “Looking for (Jewish) guy”, “Looking for (Smart) guy”, “Looking for (Nice) guy”, etc. The specific adjective of choice is set in gold-wash in the sterling plaque area.

What we love most about

Looking for a Christian Guy Bracelet
Looking for a Christian...

these is that each word is accented by a cute little icon. For instance, “Jewish” is accented with a small Star of David. “Smart” is accented by a tiny illuminated light-bulb, for bright ideas.  “Rich” (yes, we call this our “gold-digger bracelet!) is accented by a glittering bit of prong-set bling! And so on. We have a Christian version too, set with a small cross.

And, we offer an equivalent for the guy who’s still looking—his version has the same basic message-plate designs, reading “Looking for a (Rich) Girl”, etc., set on a manly leather band.

So, let’s say you want it all in one package, and who doesn’t? Nice, smart, rich, etc.? It may take more than a bracelet to get it. But start by asking for exactly what you want.
