It’s less than two weeks till Christmas, making it the perfect time of the year for a fabulous bit of bling. A gorgeous cuff, bangle or bracelet, or maybe a ring ordered today or in the next day or so, will arrive in time to ramp up the glamour quotient of any party dress or party outfit. And when the little package is delivered, simply forget that you ordered and paid for it, and think of it as a terribly sweet extra gift!!!
Before choosing your bracelet, bangle, cuff or ring, do read our Style Tips, below.
Cuffs and Bangles
And while decorating our hands, we mustn’t forget our fingers and the potential gorgeousness of a pretty ring or a stack of pretty rings.
If you have very slender wrists, think about avoiding chunky bangles or cuffs as they will make your wrists look frail. Instead, think about choosing a bracelet that is delicate and fine
If you have very slender wrists, a cuff-type bracelet should fit your wrist closely. If your wrists are more average or plump, chunky bangles or chunkier, wider cuffs make wrist and arms look slimmer.
The big jewellery question is, should you buy gold colour or silver colour bracelet/cuff/bangle? Your hair- and skin-tone should help you decide whether to choose jewellery in gold tones, which includes rose gold or silver tones, which, of course, includes white gold and platinum. If you have a warm skin tone (i.e. if you look good in rich browns, yellows and oranges), head for gold and gold-coloured jewellery. If you have a cooler skin tone (i.e. if icy pastels and most shades of blue suit you), then choose silver-toned jewellery.
If you have long arms, you can afford to break them (so to speak) by wearing bold and very visible bangles/bracelets/cuffs – and it’s a good idea to do so, especially if you are wearing short sleeves or no sleeves. But if you have short arms, wear more discreet and barely-there bangles or bracelets around your wrist to avoid breaking them and thus making your arms look shorter.
