1. WHY SHOULD I WEAR A BRACELET?
Bracelets are one of those accessories that provide a visual cue to your personality and accentuate it. To stand out in a crowd, bracelets on your wrists give a subtle manifestation to your style statement. Bracelets convey that you are trendy, relaxed & take things as they come.
A bracelet on your wrist reflects your comfort level with your personality & your confidence about it. It projects that you are aware of the curious attention from people around you. All in all, a bracelet reflects that you can handle being a class apart!
2. HOW DO I CHOOSE A BRACELET FOR MYSELF?
Always keep 3 things in mind before choosing a bracelet:
- Your wrist size & fit
- Your comfort level with style
- Occasion for wearing
Wearing a bracelet that is proportionate to your wrist size will bring out YOU more effectively. Always explore what goes best with your sense of styling and keep in mind the occasion for which you wish to flaunt the bracelet.
A perfect bracelet will be the one that is free enough to slide just around the wrist, and not on the entire forearm. Heavier wrists should be adorned with heavier bracelets. Geometric bracelets are a definite attention catchers.
The bracelet’s color conformity with that of the dresses you wear must also be kept in mind. Choose a bracelet whose color is matching with the base color of, say, the shirt sleeve.
3. CAN I WEAR A BRACELET WITH A WATCH?
Yes, you can definitely wear a bracelet with a watch.
In fact, it is encouraged that you do so. Nothing better than a stingray bracelet giving people more visual cues to your personal style statement and make them wonder about it! Besides, there is no harm in adding more conversation starters to your charisma.
4. HOW TO WEAR BRACELETS WITH A WATCH?
Watches and bracelets on same wrist? Sure!
Very simple. Leather goes with leather, metal goes with metal!
Just make sure that the bracelet beads’ color matches with that of the watch’s strap. Thin bracelets fitting close to the wrist (near your hand, not towards the elbow) below the watch are just the right thing.
It also depends on the kind of watch you wear. If it is a bulky watch, then go for stacking up 2 to 3 bracelets (all differently styled) on the empty wrist. This will balance the overall effect. There shouldn’t be too much contrast between the bracelets and the watch.
Keep an eye on your belt & tie-clip as well. Match metal and metal tones correctly. It is all about maintaining the visual weight balanced on your wrists. Happy experimenting!
5. ON WHICH WRIST SHOULD WOMEN WEAR A BRACELET?
The ideal answer is: wear it on the wrist that you think will bring out your charm in the best way.
We all know woman is synonymous with beauty! But men are catching up to pay special attention to those who stand apart from the rest in some way.
Women wearing bracelets is an emerging trend. Wearing a bracelet on your Big Day might be the best opportunity to get noticed. You never know!
Bracelets for women come in diverse designs and patterns. At a business setting, go for the right wrist for when you’ll shake hands with seniors, they’ll notice that fine bracelet wrapping your wrist and you never know what conversation will start with them that may lead to the next big thing for you, professionally!
6. ON WHICH WRIST SHOULD MEN WEAR A BRACELET?
Again, this is entirely up to you, gentlemen. The thing is to keep it in alignment with your comfort level of expressing yourself subtly. If you fumble while wearing the specially crafted men’s bracelet, you may do more damage to your charisma than enhance it!
Keep trying different mens’ bracelets on different occasion until pairing them with your persona comes intuitively to you. If you are wearing one of the ‘bracelets for him and her’, then you would like to ensure that your bracelet complements that of your significant other in every way.
7. HOW MANY BRACELETS SHOULD I WEAR?
That will depend on the occasion & your comfort level. If you are in a business setting, then wearing too many bracelets may make you look out of place unless the company’s office culture is uber cool.
In a conservative environment, a subtle bracelet that is just an inch or two away from the wrist & inside your shirt sleeves will do fine. The idea is project subtle style statement, & not give full blown exhibition of something out of place.
While at a party, pamper yourself with as many funky bracelets as you wish. Beaded bracelets or bracelets with quirky messages etched on them are just the things for such occasion. Just ensure that the bracelets go well with your dresses, watches & other accessories.
8. WHAT ARE CHAKRA BRACELETS?
Chakra is a Sanskrit word literally translating to ‘wheel’. There are 7 chakras of energy in a human body. Each chakra is a special energy center that can be activated by meditation.
The Chakra bracelet is a beaded bracelet of healing stones that are believed to release healing power. A perfect mix of culture and fashion, chakra bracelets have been prevalent since Ancient India to modern times.
Beaded bracelets of healing stones, 7 kinds of stones for 7 chakras, affect the 7 centers of energy in the body from root of the body to its crown. Each healing stone has a unique vibrational frequency that affects a specific chakra of the body.
You can wear a chakra bracelet comprising only one type of healing stone as well, targeting a particular chakra of the body. Also, you may try wearing a combo of healing stones in a single bracelet. Furthermore, you can stack up chakra bracelets, each bracelet with a different kind of healing stone.
Undoubtedly, Chakra bracelets provide a balance between beauty and well-being.
9. DO CHAKRA BRACELETS REALLY WORK?
Yes, they do.
The chakra bracelets are made up of crystals & gemstones that can absorb negative energies, but your belief plays a vital role here. Your thoughts shape up your physical composition, well-being and they also alter your energy or chi. These bracelets work in consonance with the energy of your thoughts.
The healing stones of Chakra bracelets are mostly combined in 9 colors namely red, green, blue, yellow, white, orange, pink, violet & indigo. Each stone has specific properties of energy balancing.
The efficacy of these chakra bracelets is determined by the healing properties due to vibrational frequency of the stones. Your happy vibes will extract the best out of these bracelets.
10. ON WHICH HAND SHOULD I WEAR A CHAKRA BRACELET?
The chakra bracelets unblock energy centers of the body & heal the mind and spirit. Some consideration is to be shown before deciding which hand these bracelets should be worn on.
The left side of your body is considered the feminine side which deals with your inner self. It is receptive in nature and helps you make positive shifts sending healing energies throughout your body.
For instance, wearing Amethyst on your left hand helps to reduce emotional stress. You may wear black tourmaline on your left wrist to counter negative energies. Hematite bracelets on left wrist will help you receive intuition.
Remember, left side is the more sensitive side as it deals with making inner changes.
On the other hand, the right side of your body is associated with masculine side through which you give out energy to heal others. Wearing amethyst bracelet on your right wrist will provide calming vibes to others.
The best energetic benefit you can derive from chakra bracelets will be by balancing them on your left and right wrists. A 7 chakra bracelet keeps the seven chakras at their right energy levels causing the wearer to feel more balanced.

11. HOW DO I DETERMINE RIGHT BRACELET SIZE FOR MY WRIST?

Step 3: Add quarter of an inch, or one inch, to the measured size of your wrist, depending on whether you’d like a snug, comfort or lose fit.
Viola! You have found your ideal bracelet length.
