Statement Bracelets

July 09, 2013

With every collection season, there is usually one theme running rampant on the catwalks.  For the fashion world, Spring / Summer 2013 was all about eccentricity – bold stripes, eclectic graphics and folksy tribal prints were called to front of the class.  And with those trends came the ultimate complementary statement pieces – crystal and gem jewelry.

Designers paired their runway looks with eye-catching bracelets. Armani‘s catwalk outfit was finished with a striking bold cuff, while Hermes accessorized with multiple stylish stackables. The result was a minimal, but refined elegance, a juxtaposition that embraced the charm of semi-precious stones and injected a much needed dose of sophistication into the jewelry collections.

While everything we spotted was glamorous and gorgeous, there are standout pieces in particular that we simply couldn’t take our eyes off – striking bold bracelets and cuffs, in a virtually every shape, color and size. Whether boldly oversized or stylishly understated, one thing is for certain, adding a chic bracelet will transform any look, especially for Spring.

These Bamboo cuff  and stackable bracelets from Nina Nguyen feature beautiful stones accented by 22k Gold or Silver.  They are incredibly trendy and offer loads of options on different ways to style them. Here’s a look at our favorite styles from the catwalks and tips on how to recreate these runway looks.

The Statement Cuff

Make a bold statement by wearing a bracelet on its own as a simple cuff or stack a few together to create a layered look.
