For Summer 2009, bangles are the fashion jewellery of choice. Whether they are disposable plastic, vintage costume or solid silver (gold tends to make VERY expensive bangles), make a statement with a chunky bangle.
No matter what you age, size, skin-tone or build, there is a bangle out there for you. At Corazon, we specialize in sterling silver jewellery, and all of our bangles are solid silver, but shop around on the web and you will find an amazing array of bangles to choose from.
I love silver because of its weight and its brilliant shine, and because it’s a classic. Choose the right bangle, treat it well and 20 years from now you will still be wearing it with pride. If you like things big and bold I don’t think there is a better silver bangle out there than our Pandora chunky silver bangle. It’s big, it’s bold and it is very, very different. Some people do find it a bit much so we are launching 2 simpler bangles, one smooth and one in beaten silver later this summer. In the meantime we also have some very pretty, much daintier bangles for a more subtle, delicate look, and if you want to take the middle ground our Castor bangle combines 2 slim bangles in a cross-over design to give you the impact of a big bangle without the weight.
If silver isn’t your thing, and gold is a non starter, try looking for bangles in Copper and brass. They will give you that lovely warm glow without the exorbitant price. For stunning colours that are a cut above plastic, search for glass bangles. For that ethnic, tribal look, try wood. There are some lovely chunky wooden bangles out there, plain, carved and even hand-painted.
So, will all that choice out there, if you buy one fashion item this season, make it a bangle.
