Obviously. You can’t make a list of bangles and bracelets and not mention the star of the show it in. Gold jewelry goes with everything, especially in India, where gold is deeply rooted in our traditions and culture. It symbolizes purity, prosperity, and longevity and is often passed down as a family heirloom from one generation to the next. Every happy occasion can do with a touch of gold since it is so significant to our culture.

Gold bangles are highly versatile and can make every look way more beautiful without even trying. They fit in easily with traditional Indian outfits and are friendly with other pieces of jewelry. They work for all skin tones and with almost every color. Going wrong with gold bracelets and bangles is nearly impossible.

You can pick thick gold bangles and make them a statement piece or small ones to add more depth to your look. And since there are no rules, you can pick both and create your own layers. Similarly, you can pick bracelets that go with your look and stack them to create a fitting arm party. You can add more color to your ensemble by picking gold bracelets encrusted with different color gemstones. But more on that later.

Gold sure has its fan base but silver has a style of its own. The chic and metallic look can effortlessly take your outfit’s elegance to the next level. A silver bangle with patterns engraved on it can amp up your outfit and surely make up for an interesting look.

Silver goes perfectly with everyday outfits. It can be your best buddy when you want to create a casual and relaxed look and can also easily power up your work outfits. Silver adds sophistication and glamour and can blend in easily with minimal outfits. It can be paired easily with other pieces of jewelry and can be used to craft exciting metallic looks with various outfits.

Silver bracelets or bangles stacked up can add more shine to dark colors such as black, navy blue, or maroon. Simple silver bracelets can be partnered up with everyday outfits and silver bracelets loaded with diamonds can be used to add more glitter to your party outfits.

Be it a bracelet made in silver or gold, if it is encrusted with gems, it just gets better. Gemstones never fail to add some glam and luxe to an ensemble. They can add more sparkle to your sarees, lehengas, and salwar kameez while also being the perfect choice for a western outfit for a fun weekend.

The most popular choice when it comes to gemstones is the diamond. While pairing diamond bracelets and bangles, you can pick one centerpiece accentuated with diamonds that you can stack other bracelets/bangles around. This can help you create a bewitching look that goes perfectly with your outfit’s theme and makes your ensemble more glittery. Take your pick from kundan bracelets, bracelets set in gold, and silver, and pick the ones that best fit your look.

Other gemstones such as emeralds, rubies, and tourmaline can be paired with different colored outfits. A blue sapphire or tanzanite might be just the thing you need to accentuate your blue outfit while a yellow sapphire or citrine can be perfectly paired with a red or purple-themed ensemble. You can also mix and match gemstone bracelets and come up with exciting looks!

With gemstones, the possibilities are endless. You can don a piece that can stay with you every day and embellish all your outfits or get yourself something to create something special for a specific occasion.

There is something different about pearls. They can make every look more regal and elegant. A tranquil, simple, and minimalistic look can be made more graceful using pearl bracelets and bangles.

You can pick bracelets made using smaller pearls to go with other pieces of jewelry or you can go big and make it your statement piece. You can play around with different sizes, colors, and themes and find a look that’s more ‘you’.

And if simple’s not your vibe, pearl bangles decorated with meenakari work might be. A perfect amalgam of elegance and shades that can make every look better.
