What is a Bangle Bracelet?

These elegant and versatile accessories have been adorning wrists for centuries, adding sophistication and elegance to any outfit. In this blog post, we will explore the question: what are bangle bracelets? In addition, we’ll name our top 3 favorite bangles from ALOR for Summer of 2023 and how to accessorize them. Get ready to elevate your style and create new looks with this bangle bracelet guide!

To start off, what is a bangle bracelet? A bangle is any bracelet with a secure closure when on the wrist. This most common type of security is a clasp on the underside of the bracelet. At ALOR, our clasps are an easy design that you simply slide back and slip over the opening to secure. Our bangles are also an oval shape that mimics the natural shape of the wrist, so you don’t need to worry about them flipping around throughout the day. Bangles can also be a slide-over design which is a completely round bracelet that slides over the wrist. In contrast, a cuff bracelet has an opening on the underside of the wrist that remains open when wearing. While we love them both, we’ll now focus on our top 3 favorite bangle collections from ALOR for the upcoming season and how to accessorize them!

3. Elevated Collection Bangles

ALOR’s Elevated Collection features round and square stations bedazzled in diamonds and 18kt gold and elevates them – literally! These stations appear to be floating on iconic stainless steel cable. You can play around with elevating them upwards or downwards or mixing both together. With complementary rings that match the designs of the bangles, you can choose to match your suite or contrast the colors. With so much to look at in the colored cable, geometric stations, and colors of gold, we love the way this look is styled with a simple white gauze shirt and denim. Some days you may want your apparel to do all the talking and your jewelry to be simple and blend in, but other days you want your jewelry to be your whole look! These bangles are classic enough to wear with any outfit, but bright enough to make the outfit. Our favorite combination is the Yellow Cable Square Bracelet with 18kt White Gold and the Grey Cable Round Bracelet with 18kt Yellow Gold. Playing in the same color family but in reverse, these two balance each other perfectly and are a match made in heaven!
