1- Bangle Bracelets


Almost every human being, whether male or female, have worn this type of bracelet at least once in their lives. It is mostly preferred by kids and teenagers to get attention. However, it would not be fair to say they are for a younger generation; bangle bracelets can go with any age group if you pick the right style.

When you wear this type, you will feel like you have more then 1 on your artist at the same time. In fact, most of the time, they are not separate but are really a big ring on the arm. Moreover, even though most of these types are made of different metals, they can also come with several different materials, shapes, and colors. Luckily, there are bangle bracelets for any budget.

2- Cuff Bracelets


You can easily confuse a cuff bracelet with a bangle bracelet, as they are vastly similar to each other. Yet, I believe you will remember this one from the ancient queen Cleopatra.



Back in history, cuff bracelets were quite popular in various continents. Even though they came in different shapes and sizes, most of the time they were one big piece covering the wrist easily. Not only the queens and nobles but also the soldiers used to wear these as protection around their wrist. These cuffs symbolized power, religion, richness, and status. In time, cuff bracelets were blended into the popular culture, such as Wonder Woman. She holds an eagle above her cuff bracelet and the White House. If this does not convene a power figure, I do not know what does.

3- Leather Bracelet

Do you remember the Coca Cola tangles that were sold as a promotion alongside the drink? Most of us were making bracelets by interlinking them.



The logic behind these types of bracelets is like the idea behind Coca Cola thing. It is just that you do not have to make it yourself nor you will be able to divide the pieces.

8- Tennis Bracelets


‘’Isn’t it funny – why is it called a tennis bracelet? It doesn’t seem very tennis, does it?’’


-John Cameron Mitchell

Even though they don’t look like tennis at all, they are called tennis bracelets. There is a story behind it. In 1987, there was a tennis match in the US. Chris Evert, one of the players, was having a strong game. Then, in the middle of the match, she wanted to stop the game, only because her clasp opened and her bracelet was gone. Yes, since that game, it is called a tennis bracelet.

The irony here is that tennis bracelets are thin and shiny bracelets. They are mostly made of diamonds, platinum or precious gemstones. Nevertheless, nowadays, you can see them both in sports games or on the red carpet.
