What Are Chain Bracelets?
Chain bracelets are beautiful options for day or night and can be thought of as a necklace for your wrist. Bracelets that are considered chain styles are produced by joining links of precious metal together. Some pieces are made only from metal and may have links of different shapes or sizes to make them visually appealing. Others mix gemstones in with decorative links for added color and texture. You can also find chain bracelets where the links perform a supporting role, creating a base to which decorative gemstone beads can be applied.
Sizing Chain Bracelets
When you're purchasing a chain bracelet, the most important size consideration that you'll need to make is its length. The length refers to the distance along the bracelet from end to end. Some bracelets in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry collection are adjustable, so that you can modify the length to fit your wrist perfectly. Other bracelets must be closed in one specific spot and are not adjustable. If you're considering one of these designs, it's a good idea to cut a length of string to match the length of the bracelet and wrap it around your wrist to see how the length suits your tastes. Some people prefer to wear chain bracelets tight against the wrist, while others prefer a looser fit. The choice is really up to you.
Selecting the Right Chain Bracelet
With so many beautiful chain bracelets available, you may wonder which type you should buy. One way to narrow down the options is to think about color. Do you want something that you can use to add a new hue to an outfit or are you looking for something that simply shows off the color of precious metal? You can also take the occasion into consideration. For example, a plain link bracelet without gemstones may seem more versatile for everyday wear, while a piece dripping with gemstones may appeal to you for a special occasion.
