Women have worn gorgeous jewelry on their wrists and arms for millennia. Colors, textures, and accent jewels vary in these exquisite ornamental objects. Some call them bracelets, while others call them bangles. Not interchangeable, however. How do we tell a diamond bangle from a diamond bracelet, and does it matter? We’ll go into the history of these two exquisite jewelry pieces and how to tell them apart.
Bracelet vs Bangle
A bangle is a metal ring that is stiff and ring-shaped. The traditional bangle is a closed circle with no clasp. A bracelet, on the other hand, is a flexible component that is usually closed by a clasp. While both are designed to be worn on the wrist, bangles have been seen on the upper arm and even leg in numerous cultures. Notable variations between the two pieces of jewelry include their histories.
The bangle has been worn by ladies of all cultures throughout history. Bangles have been worn in weddings, ethnic dance events, and given as protective presents for babies since 2600 BC. They were frequently piled rather than worn alone.

Extra Tips for Your Diamond Bracelet

Consider also the bracelet’s length and durability. Will the length of your bracelet get caught in your daily routine if you get an everyday piece? Can a thin bracelet endure snagging and hard outdoor activities? Consider where you will wear it when choosing.
