Bracelets are statement pieces to add to your outfit. There are many types of bracelets out there that any and every woman should wear. Bracelets can be simple or detailed and what you want depends on your style. Some bracelet options are:

No, you don’t have to play tennis to get in on this fashion statement. A tennis bracelet is a dainty bracelet composed of small gems linked together. Women accessorize with this piece of jewelry by wearing it alone, with other bracelets or with a watch. Tennis bracelets should have a safety latch that fits over the clasp, sturdy chain links and flexibility.
Trendier than the other bracelets mentioned, cuff bracelets are very detailed. They are usually oversized and can be made from different materials. Cuff bracelets usually sit on the woman’s wrist and should be sized one time. Bending the cuff continuously will weaken the structure.
Much more subtle than a pearl necklace, pendant necklaces are usually a thin chain that holds a pendant. There are many opportunities here on how to style your pendant necklace, as you get to choose the pendant and the necklace. When it comes to the type of necklace you can choose gold, platinum, silver, gold-plated, etc. But a major component to a great pendant necklace is the length of the necklace. Depending on how high or low you want the necklace to rest along your neck, you’ll probably need to go to a jewelry store and try a few on. Once you have your necklace, you then add your pendant. This could be a simple costume jewelry pendant or your great-grandmother’s heirloom.
