Bracelet Guide: How to Wear a Delicate Gold Bracelet

July 1, 2021

They say diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we beg to differ. Beautiful, simple, everyday jewelry that can join you everywhere you go is what a true BFF is made of. One of our favorites from our peer group is the classically beautiful delicate gold bracelet.

Far from barely-there chains and simplistic designs, delicate gold bracelets can make a statement all on their own. Understated yet with a personality of their own, you can slip one on for any occasion and add a little shimmer to any ensemble. Choose a chain, a bangle, a cuff, or a layered combination of any of these for a style that’s uniquely yours.

Handcrafted Artisan Pieces: Delicate Gold Bracelets as Wearable Art

The demands of the modern world for availability, variety, and low prices mean mass-produced jewelry has popped up everywhere. While you may be tempted to buy inexpensive pieces that are on-trend and available on a whim, there are other more sustainable options out there.

By opting instead for artisan jewelry, you’re choosing the timeless quality of handmade creations. Delicate gold bracelets that are handcrafted are more than fashion accessories. They’re creations lovingly made at the hands of someone who puts attention into each detail. Since each piece is made one at a time, they’re all slightly unique too. Think of handcrafted jewelry as wearable art!

Styles of Gold Bracelets

Available in many different styles, there is a delicate gold bracelet for everyone. Whether you want a simple sparkle peeking out of your jacket sleeve, or you’re out to make a statement with a bold wrist adornment, there are plenty of ways to express yourself through fashionable pieces for any outfit.

Delicate gold bracelets are on trend, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Let’s look at some of the hottest styles to spark your creativity:


Chain bracelets come in a range of styles. From thin delicate chains without adornments to chunkier styles with charms or stones, there is a variety to choose from. Chains can be customized with charms or pendants marketing special occasions. You can also add stones for birthstones to mark anniversaries or other sentimental value. Chain bracelets can be worn one at a time, or as a collection of styles for something truly unique to your style.


Cuff bracelets tend to be wide and snugly-fitting options. Typically the term cuff refers to a style of bracelet that wraps around your wrist. Some fasten, and others form to the size and shape of your wrist. They can be made of a variety of materials, from metals such as gold, silver, or a combination, or leather or beaded.

Cuffs are a great opportunity to layer different styles. By wearing a fitted cuff with a looser piece, you add multiple dimensions to your jewelry style. Some cuffs can also be worn higher up on the forearm, allowing space for a watch and other bracelets.

Stackable Bangles

Did you know bangles entered western society in the 1960s as a symbol of commitment? Have no fear, though - you’re not entering into a profound agreement by wearing these stylish bracelet options in the modern era.

Bangles are rigid bracelets that hold their shape - they are solid pieces worn around the wrist. Most commonly they are slipped on past the hand, though some include a hinge for opening and are then clipped shut. When shopping for a bangle, make sure to measure the widest part of your hand to ensure they’ll slip over.

Bracelets Suit Every Occasion

Bracelets are a versatile option for dressing up - or down - for any occasion. A varied collection of layered bangles can dress up a pair of jeans and a t-shirt, or can dress down a cocktail dress for a polished happy hour look that comes together in seconds.

They’re also versatile to be matched with other styles of bracelets. Layering delicate gold bracelets with chunky leather cuffs for example creates a nice effect that easily transitions from day to night.

Gold-Filled Favorites

As we’ve shown, there are a wide variety of bracelets available, including materials and styles. Our favorite are gold-filled bracelets. And there are a number of reasons for that:

Timeless Style

Gold is a timeless classic, easily transitioning through styles and fashion eras without losing its ageless beauty. It is also very versatile, easily fitting a wide variety of shapes, styles, and accompanying accessories. Gold-filled jewelry is a staple for any wardrobe, and it’s remarkably affordable.

Lifestyle for Life

Solid gold jewelry is beautiful and elegant, and widely available. Gold-filled jewelry is every bit as fashionable and functional, with a few added perks on its solid counterpart.

Gold is a soft metal, meaning that pieces made from solid gold tend to be quite delicate. For occasional wear and with careful storage in a dedicated jewelry box, these pieces will last you a long time. In the modern era, many women want jewelry that will take them through their day and into their night. They also want pieces they can wear daily without the worry of losing or breaking them.

Gold-filled jewelry has a layer of pure gold bonded onto a stronger core metal such as jewelers’ brass. This ensures that pieces have the strength of the base layer with the style and elegance of gold.

And unlike solid gold jewelry, gold-filled jewelry doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Depending on where and what you purchase, you can find beautiful gold-filled jewelry for a bit more than costume jewelry but much less expensive than fine jewelry. The best part, however, is the quality of gold-filled jewelry can’t be beat, even at a lower price.

Not to be confused with gold-plated, costume jewelry, gold-filled jewelry won’t tarnish or diminish over time. You’re able to wear gold-filled bracelets from the cafe to the gym to a picnic in the park without worrying that your wrist will take on a green hue or the piece will change colors.
