I gushed over my love of mixing leather and gold bracelets together in my last post, and here is why: I love the stacked bracelets look. The combinations available from even just a few pieces can be quite stunning.
Layering gold and leather bracelets up your arm is fantastic for a warm and traditional look, but there are also many other possibilities. Wrap bracelets provide an easy way to pull off the stacked armlet look without having to buy more than one. Trendy bracelets in this style wrap around the wrist multiple times, like this one:
This wrap bracelet and the beige armlet we offer in the same style comfortably wraps around the forearm three times. You can also find bracelets that are met to be worn as a set on the same arm:
The colors this bracelet set brings together make it an accessory for almost anything in your closet. I prefer to stick to solid colors when stacking bracelets, as I dislike the way certain textures mix, and that is why this bracelet set is so pleasing to the eye.
Not all bracelets are for layering though. When wearing a showpiece bracelet with complex designs and many in-set stones, that fantastic piece should not have to complete against other jewelry. Pieces like the one below are just so fitting by themselves that adding other bracelets around it only detracts from the overall look.
But a chain wrap bracelet like the one below would work just find when paired with other bracelets as the detailing is not nearly as small.
There are two combinations I stay away from when I stack bracelets. The first is not mixing gold and silver jewelry. It just looks sloppy to me. The other is that only match beaded bracelets with other beaded bracelets or leather bracelets. While you might get away with a bracelet that uses very small beads, the big beaded bracelets just look cheap next to a gold tone armlet.
