What is the difference between bracelets - cuffs, bangles, charms, wristbands and others?

Bracelets are one of the most fashion accessories these days. When choosing one for yourself, you must keep in mind the various types and what occasions they suit the best for.

Bangles

Bangles are a type of bracelet that has no clasps or flexible stretching pieces. Instead, they are meant to be slipped on over the hand and worn loosely around the wrist. The most important distinction is that the bangle must be ring-shaped (i.e., always circular, always solid) whereas the bracelet can be flexible. Often people wear more than one on their wrist. Bangles vary in width from very thin to very thick. Often thin bangles are worn together in combination with each other. They may be of the same color and metal types or they may be varying colors and metals to add extra flare and eclecticism to the look. The delicate clanging and chiming that multiple bangles create is often a notable feature of the style.

Cuffs

There is not much of a difference between a bracelet and cuff. The only difference is that cuffs are normally open at either end unlike bracelets, which are tied or hinged. Cuffs are the "C" shaped ones, most likely oval, fits close on a wrist, can have clasp or not, wider.

 

Charm bracelets

A charm bracelet is an item of jewelry worn around the wrist and it carries personal charms: decorative pendants or trinkets which are signifiers of important things in the wearer's life.
