"If you're wearing ballerina flats during the day, throw on a pair of strappy sandals with a heel on them and some little bangles, and you can go from day to evening really just with a change of accessories." ~ Peter Som

Find the right bangle size
Bangles by design
Bangle design and styles are determined mainly by the desired look, material, crafting, and functionality. Among these how a piece can be worn and how it will fit around the body is important to consider. Bangles should fit loose between your forearm and wrist without slipping off when you swing or move your arm. Therefore, some styles are closed, some are open and some bangles can be snapped open or shut.
Closed bangles are rigid and in the form of a full circle with no joint whatsoever. The traditional gold or silver bangle is closed. Designer closed bangles are often oval shaped for a comfortable fit.
Open bangles also come in gold and silver. They have a gap in the circumference that allows you to easily slip them onto your wrist. Some open bangle styles can also be adjusted to fit more snugly or loosely around your wrist.
Hinged bangles open on a small, unobtrusive hinge and close with a simple clasp like a watch. These are the most comfortable bangles to put on or remove.
Bangle type by metal
Designer bangles are expertly crafted by gold and silver smiths in amazing shapes and styles. Would you like to have a name, monogram, initials, or even a special message engraved in or on your silver and gold bangles? This is possible with plain bangle styles crafted in gold or silver! You can ask for bangle engraving services.
Solid gold bangles may be made in 9k to 18k gold. In daily-wear jewellery like bangles, it is better to have gold in lower karats, as it is tougher and able to withstand knocks and scratches.
Gold bangles for women are available in yellow gold, white gold and rose gold and some designs are available as a combination of all these variants. If you like warm golden tones, look for yellow gold bangles.
White gold bangles
White gold bangles are very popular with women today. Bangles made of 14k or 18k white gold are durable and can be handcrafted in various designs. White gold is derived when pure gold is alloyed with silver, zinc and nickel. Rhodium-plated white gold looks like platinum and women love that it is so much more affordable and comes in a wider range of designs.
Rose gold bangles
Rose gold bangles have been a trending jewellery item these past few years. Rose gold is derived when pure gold is alloyed with copper, which gives it a gorgeous and feminine blush hue. In simple elegant designs rose gold bangles make excellent companions for bracelets and rings in the same material.
Silver bangles for women are available in various designs and finishes, including polished, textured, matt. Choose a slim silver bangle in bright or matt finish or a chunky silver cuff-bangle in satin or hammered finish.
Silver is less expensive than gold, and you are sure to find beautifully designed, handcrafted silver bangles with very affordable price tags in our curated collections. While silver tends to tarnish and become duller with time, rhodium-plated sterling silver bangles will retain their looks and polish for a long time and you will find plenty of styles right here. Always check for silver hallmarking when you choose designer silver bangles. 925 sterling silver bangles are excellent quality and you love them for a long time to come.
Gold plated bangles
Gold-plated bangles are a great option, especially when you are shopping on a budget or simply want a new bangle without a big price tag. Gold-plated bangles are more affordable than solid gold ones since the process requires only a minimal quantity of gold. Check out our high-quality gold-plated bangles, plated with 18k, 22k, or 24 karat gold. These are so beautifully fashioned that it would be hard to tell that they are not solid gold.
Gemstone studded bangles
In our collections you will find beautiful fusion bangle designs combining metal and gemstones like diamonds, pearls,afordable yet colourful zirconia, and precious stones.
Diamond bangles are attention-grabbers and luxury pieces. They add that touch of sophistication to your look that no other gemstone bangle can bring. If you intend to buy an expensive bangle, we have a gorgeous range of VS-quality diamond bangles. When buying diamond bangles, you must consider the 4 Cs of diamonds: Colour, Cut, Clarity, and Carat, and ensure that you get the best quality for the price you are paying. Quality designer diamond bangles always come with grading and authenticity certificates.
Bangles with pearls and coloured gemstones
Wear bangles set with coloured gemstones such as rubies, sapphires, emeralds, and pearls to show off your adventurous spirit. These are beautiful accessories and will instantly liven up your style quotient. If you have to consider a budget but want a colourful and stylish bangle, choose a gold-plated one set with single-coloured or multicoloured high-quality zirconia (a diamond simulant).
Bangles, whether slender or chunky, can hold their own, but if you want to sport a cool and fashionable look, wear a stack of bangles. Stack several slim elegant bangles, even mixed with bracelets, in different yet complementary styles and colours for a trendy, boho-chic look. You’ll also find the movement of the pieces mesmerising, and the sweet tinkling of the many bangles is always music to the ears.
