Bracelets are one of the easiest jewelry items to wear. A Bracelet can be affordable or valuable; tribal, traditional or formal; a statement piece or delicate, and any color you like. Any kind of gemstone can be used in for making your Bracelet special for you, from cabochons to faceted gems. Bracelets can feature a single gemstone, or numerous gems. Additionally, Bracelets are ideal for any kind of gemstone, since they do not usually undergo hard knocks like rings and other items of jewelry.
When choosing a gemstone for a Bracelet, it is important to consider the kind of setting. For example, a half-drilled gem would be suitable for a capped Bracelet that will be set onto a post, such as a pearl. Drilled gems such as briolette make good Bracelet stone. For wire-wrapped Bracelets, any shape, size and cut of loose gem can be used. Wire-wrapping is also more secure than half-drilled settings, since wire-wrapped gems are cradled rather than pierced and glued. Bezel settings are also very secure, but can hide the brilliance of a gem more than prongs, which let more light through.
Gems for Bracelets can be stand-alone pieces or may have accent stones. Some Bracelets use a cluster of small gems that match in color or size and are set into a shaped metal Bracelet. Gemstone Bracelet findings can also come with small accent stones, usually white gemstones. If you are buying ready-made findings, it is important to shop for a center stone by size, so that it fits the setting and to be aware that the densities of colored gems vary. In some cases, it is usually easier to make a setting to fit a gemstone, rather than buy a gem to fit a setting. Sometimes the desired size and shape of a certain gem type may not be available. However, calibrated sized gems make finding the right gem much easier.
Precious metal Bracelets should be matched to the metal that they will be worn with. Therefore, it is important to note the purity and color of the metal because the color can vary.
Finally, Bracelet can be worn in different ways. A tribal style is perfect for the beach or casual wear, whereas a precious metal necklace will add sparkle and glamour to more formal wear. Bracelet can be worn with other jewelry as a suite, or alone. If you are wearing earrings with a Bracelet necklace, it is better that the earrings are kept subtle. Sometimes, when it comes to jewelry, less is more. However, when it comes to Bracelets, you can never have too many.
