Bracelet Buying Tips: How to Pick the Perfect Bracelet

14 Karat Gold Bracelet with Diamonds of 1.6 ct tw

A bracelet is a versatile jewelry item that can be worn on many different occasions. There are numerous types of bracelets available, including bangles, charms, tennis bracelets, cuff bracelets, and link bracelets. To ensure that a bracelet gift will last for years to come, it’s essential to select a durable, high-quality bracelet that is capable of withstanding daily wear and tear. Furthermore, the bracelet should fit the wearer and match his or her lifestyle. Below are some tips that will help you choose the right bracelet gift.


Bracelet Width


Pick a bracelet that enhances the appearance of the wearer’s wrist. For someone with a large wrist, a wider bracelet would look great. Visually, a narrow bracelet could get lost on a wide wrist. If you get a charm bracelet for someone with a large wrist, pick larger charms. For someone with a small wrist, a narrow bracelet would look the best.


Bracelet Length


Tennis bracelets are available in various lengths. If you get a tennis bracelet, the rule of thumb is to choose a bracelet that is no more than half an inch longer than the natural measurement of your wrist. The bracelet should fit comfortably. When buying a bracelet as a gift, measure another bracelet that the wearer owns without including the clasp or tongue portion. Standard women’s bracelets are usually seven inches long. 


Setting Types


The setting of a bracelet refers to the metal base that holds the gemstones in place. There are many different settings to choose from, including channel, prong, bezel, and half-bezel. All of these settings are secure, but it’s best to remove bracelets before doing anything active. Select a setting that won’t catch onto things as easily. If you are buying a bracelet for someone who plays sports or is otherwise active, consider getting a bangle, a smooth bracelet, or a channel set bracelet.




To choose a bracelet that fits the wearer’s style, check his or her existing jewelry collection to see what types of bracelets he or she already has. This will give you a good idea of the person’s style as well as help you determine what he or she might be missing. As with any other jewelry purchase, check whether the recipient has an allergy to any metals so you can avoid buying a bracelet made of a metal that could irritate his or her skin.


If you know someone celebrating a special event, such as an anniversary, Sweet 16, or graduation, consider getting a bracelet as a gift. Bracelets are fun, versatile, and beautiful accessories that come in many styles and sizes.
