Tips for Buying Bracelets as a Gift

  • Bracelets come in a variety of lengths. It will be a good idea to know the approximate size of the recipient’s wrist.
  • Visit his or her jewelry box. Knowing what kinds of bracelets he or she already has will give you a good idea of their style – or what they might be missing.
  • Know their style. A diamond tennis bracelet is a great idea for someone who dresses up more often, while a bangle or similar fashion-forward bracelet is a great idea for someone ¬†who lives to accessorize with bold jewelry looks.
  • Allergies? As with any jewelry gift purchase, make sure your recipient does not have allergies to certain metals or materials that irritate the skin.
