Choosing the perfect bracelets for a gift

Fashion Lifestyle

Bracelets are one of the best gift items to give to a female friend on any occasion. They are easy to choose, due to a wide variety available, and are also easy to shop for last minute. They are available in many designs and materials and range from extremely affordable to highly expensive. They are incredibly versatile and can be worn by a woman of any age. You can gift them on any special occasion. The style you give may depend upon your budget, the recipient’s taste, and your relationship with the recipient.

Following are a few tips that can help you in selecting a good bracelet to give to a special lady:

  • First, keep in mind the recipient’s taste and style. Do not only judge the bracelet according to your liking.
  • The size of the bracelet is essential. If the bracelet is too small or too loose for the recipient, the chances are that she will not be able to wear it. Thus, all your time, energy, and money will go waste.
  • Either ask for the recipient’s size or buy based on your knowledge of her wrist. Some bracelets, like charms, can be adjusted according to the recipient’s wrist size. However, others, like bangles, cannot be adjusted and must be the perfect size to fit the wearer’s wrist snugly.

Material options:

  • Next is the material of the bracelet. Select according to the recipient’s taste and also what fits your budget. Bracelets are broadly categorized as follows: Gemstone bracelets, beaded bracelets, bangles, and charms.
  • All of these styles are available in a plethora of designs and are available in various metals like sterling silver, gold, silver, and platinum. Before starting your selection process, decide the material you will like to purchase. This single decision will make the process easier for you as you will be able to make a mental note of the budget you want to spend on the gift.
  • Decide the material based on the recipient’s taste, age, the closeness of your relationship with the recipient, the gift occasion, the intentions you want to portray, and your budget.
  • You can choose gold as it is always in fashion and can match with any dress and on any occasion. You can choose between yellow gold and white gold, or designs containing an artistic mix of both types. You can also choose a design that has encrusted beautiful precious or semi-precious gemstones of a different color or a uniform color. These are best for mature women.
  • For young girls, choose charms in sterling silver or platinum. For an older woman, choose a charming piece with pearls and crystals set in platinum or silver.

In addition to the factors listed above, also keep in mind the current fashion trend while selecting the designs. If you are confused between designs, go for simple bracelets with a minimalistic look.
