Silver Bangles are Hard

Bangles are traditional bracelets worn in south Asia. Bangles were and are a symbol of marriage and were worn as honeymoon jewelry. Bangles can be made of any hard material including silver, gold, glass, wood, or plastic. Bangles are traditionally worn together and make a musical sound when they "bang" together. The gold and silver bangles make a deeper tone and the alloy metals make a more tinny sound.

Whether you want to wear a silver bangle as a traditional south Asian piece of jewelry or you like the vintage look of the cuff bracelets, you will likely find a use for a beautiful silver bracelet in your jewelry collection. Bangles are hard and in fixed form. They do not bend and flex like chain bracelets, rope bracelets, or leather cuff bracelets.

Silver Bracelet Styles

Silver looks great with almost any style of dress. Silver is generally worn in more conjunction with more casual clothing and jewelry, but silver can look great with formal wear also.

These example of silver cuff bracelets show the available variety. When you are deciding which silver bracelet to buy, you should think about when you might wear it and what you will wear it with. The Italian silver mesh bracelet would look great with an evening gown on. The silver bangle bracelet caries more of a fun, colorful, feel.  You could easily wear it with a flower print dress and sandals.

Silver Bangle Value

When you decide to buy a silver bangle keep in mind that you are buying an ethnic piece of jewelry. The style comes from South Asia. At the same time silver gives an organic and understated elegance that can accent the style you are wearing. Silver is possibly the best value of precious metal jewelry you will find.

When you buy a sterling silver bangle, you can expect bracelet to hold up to it's namesake.  Bang this metal on just about anything but stone and it should be the harder material.  You won't have to worry much about allergies to cheap metals such as nickel that you might find in other "silver looking" bracelets.

Silver Bangles Look Great with Boho Styles

Boho or boho-chic mean Bohemian style fashion.  The easiest way to describe boho as a style is to tell you to think 60's vintage clothing.  Flower prints, tunics, colorful fabrics, and huge overstated jewelry marked what we know as bohemian style.  The bohemian style of the 60's was a child of the 1920's flapper era.  And now we once again have the same sort of comeback happening.  Each time the fashions make a comeback, they have their own trademark quirks.

If you are looking for a retro looking bracelet, a silver bangle might be what you are looking for.  Silver bangles fit the vintage boho chic theme of over sized jewelry made of natural materials.  Silver looks very natural and goes great with the colorful prints found in women's boho clothing.
