Women’s Line and Bangle Bracelets: A Timeless Gift

Whether it’s an anniversary, a birthday, or just an everyday gift to show your love, bracelets are a timeless choice to express your feelings. Like with all jewelry, you have plenty of choices, from sophisticated line bracelets to statement-making bangles. The choice comes down to the personal preference of your beloved and the occasion. Let’s take a look at the difference between line and bangle bracelets.

Bangle Bracelets

Bangle bracelets come in myriad shapes, colors, and styles. From simple leather cuffs to beautiful gold and diamond bands, your choices are endless. For a gift to a loved one, however, the jeweled and elegant style is the best choice. Bangles are rigid, and meant to be slipped on over the hand or, occasionally, closed on a hinge around the wrist. This rigidity makes them less understated than a line bracelet, which lends itself well if your love is a fan of statement pieces that can still remain elegant and sophisticated.

Line Bracelets

When you think the word “bracelet”, the image that comes to mind is probably a line bracelet. Line bracelets are flexible strings or chains, tied onto the wrist with a clasp. They may be as simple as a gold chain, or as intricate as a string of diamonds and precious gems. These types of bracelets are flexible rather than rigid as bangles are. They are also thin and made more for a simple addition to an ensemble, rather than to be used as a statement piece. Line bracelets lend any outfit a simple, understated elegance, and for a romantic night out, they are a perfect choice. Line Bracelets are an especially lovely choice if you are looking to purchase a matching bracelet/necklace set. Because a line bracelet is based on a chain design, matching it to a necklace in style and type is easier than doing the same with a bangle.

Bracelets: A Timeless Gift

There is never a wrong time for a gift of beautiful jewelry, but bracelets are particularly appropriate for certain occasions:


Especially for anniversaries past 40 years, which are marked as the Ruby (40 years), Sapphire (45 years), Gold (50 years), Emerald (55 years), and Diamond (60 years).


It’s traditional for the bride and groom to exchange gifts on their wedding day. A bracelet from you can be your bride’s “something new” item.


Has your love just completed law school? Gotten a big promotion? Been published? Started a business? Whatever her accomplishments, a gift of jewelry can be a way to celebrate her and her hard work. Whatever the occasion, a line or bangle bracelet tells the one you love that they are more precious to you than gold and diamonds. It is a perfect way to celebrate your feelings for them.
