I do believe that wearing an elegant, understated cuff bracelet or two, without going into arm party territory, is the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. The only bracelet I own right now is a delicate gold chain with a tiny cubic zirconia stone, and while I do love it, I often long for something with a little bit more punch.
I once owned a hinged bangle that was quite perfect, but the hinge came loose and I lost the bracelet. Though I miss it very much, I am reluctant to purchase it again since the hinge was so flimsy — I wouldn’t want to lose it again. I browsed a little to find other options.
I’ve seen accessories by MIRLO featured on AndyHeart very often, and couldn’t help but notice how perfectly simple the pieces are. I am particularly smitten by the Horseshoe Cuff (seen on the left), though I am a little worried the chain would be in the way.
Etsy is my favourite place to browse for jewelry. The large number of artisans on there give you the widest range of styles to choose from. I found Favor while looking for cuff bracelets, and I quite love the hammered cuff (left) and the bar ID bracelet (right) in particular. They are both 14K gold fill, and are really affordable.
I am not really picky as far as quality goes for my jewelry. There is no need for precious metal as long as the piece doesn’t rust or tarnish, so I do appreciate materials like brass, steel or 14K gold fill which don’t cost too much. I also don’t mind buying my accessories from chains like H&M, which admittedly offer many, many affordable and beautiful cuff bracelets, but finding one that fits my smaller wrist is often very hard.
I’m curious to know if you guys have any more suggestions of designers and stores for dainty wrist jewelry. I’d love to hear about them!
