There are several differences between bangle bracelets and tennis bracelets. One of the obvious differences is the fact that a tennis bracelet is flexible and a bangle is not. Links can be removed or added for a bracelet for a bangle is a one fit unless specifically told. The difference between tennis bracelets and bangle bracelets is that tennis bracelets are flexible in design so they can be made in a variety of lengths, simply by adding or removing links. A bangle bracelet has a set length of seven inches usually. Both pieces use gold and platinum settings and can feature diamonds or gemstones.
The bracelet setting is the overall structure of the piece and the most important part of it. It holds all the stones in place. There are several different varieties of settings. The most frequent are the prong, channel, bezel and half bezel. Every setting is highly secure and there is no higher preference for the other. The prong setting is the most purchased and created. It is highly popular for diamonds and gemstones. The prong setting is when smaller metal prongs hold onto the girdle of the stone. The channel setting is a setting where a uniform set of stones are held by the metal which covers a part of its sides. The bezel setting is when the diamonds are completely covered by the metal. A semi-Bezel setting or Half Bezel setting is when the diamond is only partially surrounded by the metal setting.
One of the most important decisions when purchasing your bracelet if diamonds or any gemstone is your preference, is selecting the right stones. There are a couple factors you need to keep in mind when choosing the diamonds. One of the factors is the total diamond carat size for the bracelet you are buying. That ties hand in hand with your budget. In terms of diamond size, generally the bigger the stone the more you can see the inclusions and imperfections unless you spend the extra money to get the higher quality. This is why we recommend going for the smaller diamonds but much better quality. You will see a much better sparkle that way and you will be extremely satisfied. Decide on a budget for your bracelet and use the product configuration to create the perfect diamond bracelet within your budgetary limits.
Bracelets are often available in different lengths and it is very important to make sure you are happy with the size. One thing we recommend is measure another bracelet to figure out your size. The rule of thumb is to order a half an inch longer than your actual wrist. This will your wrist the most comfortable fit and it won't fall down from your arm or be too tight. Do not include the clasp or the tongue portion when measuring another bracelet to see your size. The standard women's length is 7 inches and the standard men's size is 8. Bangles are usually 7 inches in standard length.
