Pearl bracelets

Pearl bracelets have come a long way from the classic strand design. Although the timeless pearl strand is always a good choice, you can also put a spin on the classic by opting for a more unique take on the pearl bracelet.

Between pearl station bracelets, designs that have a single pearl as the focal point of the bracelet, styles that mix pearls and diamonds, and colored pearl bracelets, your options are endless!


Whether you prefer dainty designs, bold styles, or anything in between, bangles are essential to any jewelry collection. And with so many unique designs to choose from, your options are virtually endless.

The best part about bangles is that you can style them with everything from jeans and a t-shirt to cocktail dresses. You simply can never go wrong with these beautiful bracelets.

Station Bracelets

If you like the look of chain bracelets, but prefer designs that are a little more intricate, then station bracelets are perfect for you.

Cuffs truly are timeless. These bracelets have been around for over 40,000 years, and they still feel completely fresh. It’s safe to say cuffs will simply always be in style. No wonder they’re such an essential part of any jewelry collection.

The best part is that cuffs come in a wide range of beautiful designs, ranging from thin and minimalist to wide and bold. So, no matter your personal taste in jewelry, you can always find the perfect cuff for you.

How the tennis bracelet got its name

This iconic bracelet intrigues many with its curious name. Formerly known as the “line bracelet,” this design got its name thanks to the famous tennis player, Chris Evert.

The story goes that she was playing a match in 1978 when her diamond bracelet flew off her arm and she asked the referee to stop the game so she could look for it. From that moment on, people started calling it “tennis bracelet,” and the name stuck.
