Gold bangle bracelets (as well as cuffs) are undeniably chic and add that exotic Luxe look that Classy and Boho fashionistas love!
You can find gold bangle bracelet in a wide variety of styles, so there is something for everyone! For the classy to the trendy urban gal. And from single to stacked bangles, from enameled texture to colorful beads or sparkly cubic zirconia.
Wear them with your sweatshirt and jeans; or a white sun dress - gold cuffs and bangles are versatile and instantly inject glam to any outfit. Or stack on the bangles and make cheerful sounds with your wrists in your tunic dress - or add a single bangle to an office outfit for that added sparkle.
How to Buy Gold Bangle Bracelets
Set a budget
You can either choose between buying one or two high-quality bracelets, or 8-10 pieces for the same price. I would definitely invest in at least one simple gold bangle in real gold - it's durable, doesn't tarnish and excellent if you're planning on wearing it frequently.
Have in mind that most cheap jewelry have a metal underneath the layer which contains nickel which can cause
irritating skin reactions. So if you have a skin allergy make sure that it'snickel free. EU countries have banned nickel from jewelry so you don't have to worry about the fashion jewelry from European stores such as H&M - they're nickel-free by law :-)
Cheaper gold bangle bracelets
The drawback is unlike solid gold or gold-filled, is that the gold layer is so thin that it will tarnish in just a few months or earlier if it's constantly exposed to air and water. And we all know that the brown layer beneath isn't a pretty sight.
If you need to update your look for less and don't mind throwing them away when they tarnish - then cheap fashion bangles are your best options.
Tip: If you want quality at a low price consider Vermeil gold and Gold-filled. Look for Vermeil and Gold-filled bangle bracelets. These are a lot more affordable than the high-end but have the same quality. Their gold plating is much stronger than the cheaper ones, and with regular maintenance they can last a for several decades.
Understand how gold purity works
You can usually find how many karats a jewelry piece contains by looking at the tiny-teeny marking on it. The word karat with the K is a measure of gold. Higher gold karats like 18 or 22k naturally means higher prices because of the purity. Common marks on the gold metal: karat, carat, Karat, Carat, Kt., Ct., K or C.
Have in mind that many handmade gold-filled jewelry pieces don't have this stamp.
Note: Since purer gold jewelry are known to be soft and not resistant to bending I suggest you to opt for 10 or 14k gold.
Secure at least one pair of quality bangle bracelet
I recommend securing at least one or two pair of expensive, high-quality gold bangle bracelets in versatile styles (no fussy texture and details)
that will stand the test of time.
How to style your gold bangle bracelets
Wearing a basic, single bangle is appropriate for office - while the stacked look is perfect for adding texture to your outfit.
You can either wear the bracelet as a pretty accent to warm colors that complement the gold (or silver for that matter).
Or how about creating a fashion statement by using a basic outfit as your canvas with a trendy cuff bracelet which works as a focal point?
Scale the bangle to your wrist size
Thinner and more delicate bangles complement smaller and thinner wrists best - and vice versa if you have an average to wide wrist. The reason for this is that if you wear something the opposite of your size to disguise it, the more noticeable it will look because of the obvious size difference.
