Bracelets - Big Fashion Trend here to stay
Ever noticed how a certain trend appears out of nowhere to then snowball into something huge? Well, it seems we've all been subconsciously waiting for romantic bracelets to steal the limelight.
Cartier's Love bracelet was the most Googled piece of jewellery for 2016 and it now set to be a long-standing icon for the luxury brand. So why this sudden popularity, given it has been around since 1969? Well, thanks to social media we know Pippa Middleton, Sienna Miller, Cameron Diaz and Kylie Jenner (who stacks hers) have all been photographed wearing it, and that's publicity gold.
Jewellery fashion may be sizing down in scale but we aren't cutting the quantity. If you loved stacked rings, then stacked bracelets could be your thing. Delicate, blade-thin and yes, stackable, bracelets are big news the world over. These are especially popular in the current Northern hemisphere summer when a wide band cuff feels too restricting in the sticky heat!
Bracelets are elegant but this doesn't always mean understated. Customers are looking for investment pieces which will take them from day to night.
Karen Walker's charm bracelets and Meadowlark's fine chain bracelets with bird, star, flower and skull charms are perfect for layering.
Boh Runga's collection of fine bracelets originates from her iconic Miromiro feather, Tui, Fantail and Stargazer designs.
If you're looking for some 'wrist candy' but want something a little heavier, Walker & Hall have an excellent range of sterling silver, rose, white and yellow gold bangles and bracelets. Beautiful diamond set tennis bracelets and bangles are very popular with brides-to-be and compliment a wide range of engagement rings beautifully.
If you are looking for one-off vintage styles these are available too in stunning diamond, gemstone, gold, Art Deco, Modern and Victorian styles.
Whatever your style, there is a go-to bracelet for every woman.
