How to Choose Diamond Bracelets For Women

Necks, earlobes, fingers, even ankles and toes, all of these places on the body are well worth adorning with high quality diamond jewelry. Another classic spot is the wrist, where we use bracelets to symbolize who we are and also what we believe in.
Diamond bracelets for women are some of the most unique and inspiring pieces of jewelry available, with the added bonus of being able to appreciate their beauty with a simple glance and movement of the wrist. But what do you look for when choosing from the range of diamond bracelets you will find online?

In this blog, we will guide you through the stages you’ll naturally meet when choosing the perfect diamond bracelet for her.

Decide A Style

Variety is the spice of life, as they say, and you’ll find a wide variety of diamond bracelets on offer when you first start looking.
Now, this can be intimidating. Chunky, or complex, or minimalist - there are many out there, each with their own benefits and styling differences. So which do you go for?
You need to take what you know about your intended recipient and distill that into a style. How do they dress? Do they like flamboyance or understated wear? Do they prefer gold, silver, or platinum?
Think about these design spectrums:
  • Bracelet or bangle?
  • Chunky or delicate?
  • Diamond or other precious stone?
  • Gold, silver, or platinum?
  • Many diamonds, a smaller amount, or one central diamond?
A great place to begin is by taking note of their current jewelry and what they prefer in terms of what they accessorize themselves with.

Bracelet or Bangle

One key difference we must cover is the difference between a bracelet and a bangle. Bracelets are traditionally made of linked, woven chain, while a bangle is a solid piece of metal. Bangles can either open with a hinge and clasp shut when needed, or are put on by simply squeezing the hand through the band.
Here are beautiful examples of both.

Diamond Bracelets And Carat Weight

The weight of diamonds is measured in carats. The higher the carat, the bigger the diamond and, usually, the higher the price tag.
The total carat weight of your bracelet will depend on how many diamonds are included in the bracelet, as well as the size (weight) of each of them. (Individual diamond weight is calculated by dividing total carat weight by the number of stones in the piece). For example, this stunning 2.00ctw 14k White Gold "Three-Prong" Diamond Tennis Bracelet contains 59 diamonds which are .03ct to .04ct each. (2.00/59= 0.03+)

Different bracelets will also have a varying number of diamonds. Your choice on this should be informed by the type of jewelry the recipient enjoys. For example, do they prefer more minimal, delicate pieces, where the focus is on smaller amounts of diamonds?
Here at Whiteflash, we have diamond bracelets for women that suit every design preference.

Diamond Quality

Many of us are looking for the best quality diamond. Well, that will always come with a premium, especially if you’re looking for a Flawless diamond.
In general, you don’t need to choose the most expensive, Flawless diamond you can find. In fact, diamonds that aren’t at the same level of clarity can still produce the exact same light performance and look just as incredible.
Take, for example, a well cut VS1 Clarity Diamond. These are less expensive, will be completely eye clean, and it will look indistinguishable from Flawless diamonds. This means you’re purchasing a more affordable diamond, but getting the same results. Find out more about VS1 Clarity Diamonds here.
Finally, when it comes to choosing a diamond quality for bracelets, remember that diamonds used in bracelets tend to be smaller and minor imperfections will be as well. This means you can probably choose a lower clarity diamond as any blemishes or inclusions will be harder to notice, provided the cut quality is high.

Choose The Finest Quality Diamonds

Think About Fit

Fit is subjective. Obviously, the person you’re buying for will want something that’s not too tight, but also not too loose.
The right size for a bracelet will mean it moves a little on the wrist, with the wearer being able to comfortably place at least one finger between their wrist and the chain itself.
Bangles should also have some movement, but if they’re able to slide over the heel of your hand, then they’re too big.

Silver, Gold, or Platinum?

Clearly, choosing the right precious metal is greatly influenced by your budget. But it’s also influenced by what you think the person you’re buying this diamond bracelet for will enjoy.
There’s also the issue of wear and tear, as these metals wear differently over time. Here at Whiteflash, we use a number of different metals when creating our timeless jewelry pieces:

Silver

The most common example of silver used in jewelry is sterling silver, which is a blend of a blend of 92.5% pure silver and 7.25% copper, which helps to make it stronger. Silver jewelry is typically very inexpensive.
While silver is very beautiful, it does have the potential of tarnishing over time. However, with new silver alloys and design methods being created, this is less of a problem today than it ever was.

Gold

Gold is the industry standard. An adored, versatile, and durable metal, gold is most commonly usually available 14K and 18K white, yellow, and rose gold.
The benefits of gold are undeniable, being tarnish and corrosion-proof, as well as being easy to clean. However, gold is a softer metal, and can be dented or scratched if hit or scraped against a hard surface with enough force.

Platinum

The more expensive counterpart to the white metal finish of silver and white gold is platinum. It’s more expensive than silver and even white gold, and does not require plating to retain its natural white color. It is extremely durable and resistant to tarnishing.
Platinum is also a hypoallergenic metal, meaning that anyone with specific allergies or sensitive skin won’t be affected by wearing jewelry made of it.
