A Gift from the Heart - A Gold Bangle Bracelet

Updated on January 27, 2015

My Mom and Her Gold Bangle Bracelet

I always remember my Mom wearing her gold bangle bracelet when she was dressed up. My father passed away when I was 6 years old and my mother had two young daughters to raise so she didn't get dressed up to go out very often but when she did that gold bangle bracelet completed her look.

I inherited her bracelet just after my fortieth birthday when my mom passed away and it is one of my most treasured pieces that is worth the world to me. I wear it at all special occasions and feel that my Mom is somehow with me.

My Daughter's Gold Bangle Bracelets

Our Gift from the Heart

As the parents of daughters, we wanted to give them a "Forever" gift as they finished college. Of course, my Mother's gold bangle bracelet came to mind. We went shopping and found the most beautiful gold bangle bracelets for our girls. Each daughter's bracelet was slightly different but all were similar to my mother's much loved bracelet.

We had the bracelets engraved on the inside with our daughter's first and middle names and the year.

Just like Mom's.

Give this to your wife and she will feel like she has received the most memorable gift of her life. (she has)

Making this a gift from a parent(s) to a daughter will create a memory that could very well last for generations.

The most important part of giving a gold bangle bracelet is the engraving. Make sure to take the bracelet to a jeweler and have it engraved with a special message or just the date, this is what it takes to make this the 'Forever" gift of a lifetime.

Gold Used in Jewelery

Because pure (24k) gold is very soft, it is usually combined with base metals for use in jewelry. Copper is the usual mix making the gold have a redder color.

22k, 18k, 14k or 10k as compared to 24k pure gold and is measured by the percentages of copper or other base metals or silver or palladium in the alloy.

24k gold is very soft and pliable and therefore is mixed with several different types of base metals to make it into lasting jewelery.

Please Stop and Say Hi - Writing this brought back some dear memories.

      Your mother's bracelet is beautiful! I have no doubt that it is one of your most cherished treasures. I personally love bangle bracelets too. For years, I tried to find one like my grandmothers. Now, I own my grandmother's bracelet. One thing that is for certain, I am glad to have that treasure, but I would rather have my grandmother still wearing it.

      Good memories for you and good ideas for me! I have a lovely little "bangle bracelet" that was given to me when I was small...unfortunately, I don't know who gave it to me, and I didn't find it among my stuff until my Mom passed on, so I can't ask her.

      The story of your mother's bracelet came close to home for me - I remember sitting at my mother's dressing table when she was getting ready to go out, fascinated by her powders and brushes and jewelry, especially a silver bracelet that was almost exactly like your mother's gold one. I must ask my mother if she still has it.

      I love wearing jewelry that has sentimental meaning like this. My engagement ring was my great-grandmothers. My mom wore it after my great-grandmother died, and she let me have it once I was engaged.
