Charm bracelets are back in style thanks to a revival of retro trends. These fun and jangly bracelet styles bring flair to even your most everyday outfits. You may find yourself getting distracted by flicking your wrist to watch the charms dance around just as you did when you were a kid. 

Everyone loves charm bracelets. They are a timeless jewelry style. You can even add your own custom charms to these bracelets to make them even more uniquely tailored to you and your interests.

Some choose charms to remind them of someone special or to represent certain hobbies. There is also a belief that the charms a person chooses can help distract them from negative thoughts. But whatever reason you choose your preferred charms is entirely up to you. 

Paperclip Bracelets

Paperclip bracelets, also known as chain link bracelets, offer a distinct and contemporary look in bracelet styles. They are available in many different sizes and thicknesses. You can either opt for a chunkier style with thicker and larger links to wear with casual apparel or one with smaller, thinner links to wear with formal attire. 

If you're feeling particularly bold, you may even want to wear multiple paperclip bracelets of varying sizes to accentuate your look. These bracelet styles are versatile and you can find them in yellow gold, silver, and rose gold metal colors. They will look good on a variety of different body types as well. 

Pearl Bracelets

Pearl bracelets are classic bracelet styles for women everywhere. The natural wonder of the pearl has long been associated with sophistication and timeless elegance. They can instantly dress up any outfit with ease and they add an effortless style to your look.

A pearl has an organic sheen and luster to it. Pearls are also associated with specific beliefs and symbolism. In certain cultures, the pearl represents attributes and qualities like wisdom, protection, innocence, and longevity. 

If you're not one for the small traditional white style of pearls, you can find larger sizes for more emphasis. You can also find different color variations like pink, peach, grey, black, and iridescent. Pearls are multifaceted in that they also come in non-rounded varieties like baroque, pear, oval, and drop shapes. 

Bangle Bracelets

Bangle bracelets have been a fashion staple for centuries as far back as 2600 BC. These bracelet styles are often oversized or irregularly shaped. This can give the wearer the appearance of having a smaller wrist. 

Bangles can be very ornate and decorated accessories or they can have a simple design to them. Most bangles are designed to slide on or off your wrist. You can also find bangles with hinges that open and close to make make it easy to put on and take off the bracelet.

You can find bangle bracelet styles in gold, silver, rose gold, and mixed metals. Gold currently holds the top spot as the most popular material for fashion jewelry like bangle bracelets. It also holds the highest worldwide market share valued at $185.83 billion

Cuff Bracelets

Cuff bracelets were once made popular by Queen Cleopatra herself. And it's not hard to see why. These ornate bracelet styles exude elegance and style that's truly fit for a queen. 

Although bangles and cuffs look similar, a cuff bracelet differs from a bangle in its design. Whereas a bangle is often a closed circle, the cuff bracelet features an opening on the underside. This opening allows you to adjust the size of most cuff bracelets so that it fits better on your wrist. 

Cuff bracelets come in a variety of different widths and metal types. They can contain decorative elements like semi-precious stones and filigree metal patterns. Cuffs are meant to be bold and bohemian-style fashion accessories for more contemporary women. 

Sterling Silver Bracelets

 Confetti Bracelet (Silver)

Sterling silver bracelets are always in style. Not only are they chic and simplistic, but they are also affordable and durable. Sterling silver bracelet styles are long-lasting and can withstand a lot of wear and tear while still looking good.

The durability of sterling silver bracelets also makes them ideal for everyday wear. Wearing bracelets made of sterling silver gives you more fashion accessory choices for less money than other fine jewelry bracelet options. This means you can diversify your jewelry collection much easier.

A sterling silver bracelet possesses an understated beauty that is hard to beat. It can dress up an outfit or pair well with other sterling silver accessories for a casual everyday look. Sterling silver types of jewelry can go from daytime to evening wear in a snap.

Tennis Bracelets

Adjustable Moon Cut Bead Friendship Bracelet (Gold) 

Tennis bracelets are some of the most popular bracelet options. They feature a uniform style that wraps all the way around the bracelet itself. Most commonly a tennis bracelet has interconnected channels or flexible chain settings lined with decorative stones.

While traditional tennis bracelet styles typically feature diamonds, there are versions available with more affordable stone options like Swarovski crystals, semi-precious or precious stones, and cubic zirconia. Tennis bracelets are identified by their singular row of stones that encircle the wrist. However, modern tennis bracelets can contain 2 or 3 rows of stones.

A tennis bracelet is a popular gift for special birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries. They can also be heirloom gifts passed down from one family member to another. 

Chunky Bracelets

Chunky bracelets make excellent statement pieces. They are especially well-suited for women who aren't afraid to stand out. With chunky bracelet styles, bigger is better and larger designs give your bracelets more depth and character.

A chunky bracelet is anything containing oversized elements. It can be made of different materials such as wooden beads, shells, metal chains, or enameled pieces. A chunky bracelet may also feature bold and eye-catching colors like red.

Thicker bracelets like those with shiny or hammered metal finishes offer an exquisite juxtaposition of texture and consistency. Incorporating different metal colors like silver, gold, and rose gold together also adds allure. 

You can pair up chunky bracelets with other bracelet options like bangles or cuffs. Mixing these bracelet styles together can create an interesting visual contrast. 

Beaded Bracelets

Beaded bracelets can feature a single string of beads or contain multiple interwoven strands of beads. They can also contain a singular color of bead or numerous bead colors in their design. You can find bracelet styles with small uniform bead sizes as well as those with larger or mixed bead sizes.  

The bead materials can also vary between the different beaded bracelet options. Some bracelets may contain beads made of wood, glass, plastic, semi-precious stone, or metal. The type of material you choose for your beaded bracelet can greatly impact its overall aesthetic. 

The beads can be placed on wire, elastic, string, or directly onto the bracelet's chain. For more intricate designs, the beads can be woven together to make embellished decorative patterns. 

Stacked Bracelets

Stacked bracelets are a great way to experiment with contrast and composition while wearing bracelets. You may want to stack similar bracelet styles up in the same metal color if you're going for a more uniform look. However, don't be afraid to mix it up a little bit as well. 

With stacked bracelets, it's fun to mix metal colors like silver, yellow gold, and rose gold together. It's also perfectly acceptable to wear different bracelet styles together. You can play around with textures and bracelet sizes as well. 

For example, you can wear one chunky gold bracelet with a smaller and more delicate chain bracelet. You can also throw in a paperclip-style bracelet for added depth and dimension.

Although it seems a bit chaotic in theory, the result on your wrist will be a feast for the eyes with an interplay of texture and color from afar and up close.
