Classic Bracelet Types That Never Go Out of Style

Bracelets date back to at least the times of Ancient Egypt. With such a long history, there are some bracelet types that never go out of style. These bracelets will exude class with every outfit you pair them with.

Bountiful Bangles

A closed bangle is usually a rigid circular shape. We know from archaeological discoveries that bangles date back at least 4,500 years!

A chain bracelet is the simplest form of this jewellery type. As the name suggests these are bracelets made of a simple chain.

From large links that are ideal for adding pendants, to fine chains that add a delicate touch of glamour to an outfit.

Glamorous Tennis Bracelets

Despite first appearing in the 1920s, tennis bracelets didn't take on their current name until the 1970s. This bracelet type is characterised by its single symmetrical line of diamonds or other gems. They gained their current name when tennis player Chris Evert began sporting them alongside her tennis attire, in her ascent to highest ranked women's player in the world.

6 Types of Sentimental Bracelet

Whilst all types of bracelets are beautiful, there are a few varieties that hold a little more meaning. These are bracelets that you'll hold close through the years and remind you of special times.
