Buying A Women's Designer Silver Bangle
If you are looking for that perfect handmade silver bangle, here's a few things you may wish to consider. Firstly, scale. Are you looking for silver bangles that are slim and delicate, a subtle silver highlight for her wrist or are you looking to choose something that is bigger, a chunky silver bangle which is a statement piece? When choosing between silver bangles for women, the scale isn't necessarily about the size of the woman. It's about what suits the wearer, and how much impact you want the bangle to make. If it is the only piece of jewellery you're planning to wear, go big with a high impact silver cuff or wide silver bangle. If it's going to be worn as an everyday bangle or as part of a selection of different pieces, then we suggest you opt for a slimmer design that you can mix and match with a necklace or ring. Whatever it is that you're looking for, Corazon Latino has a wide variety of silver bangles online to choose from, with something for all tastes.
What are the Different Types of Real Silver Bangles?
The next aspect of buying a silver bangle online is the style. There are basically two types of silver bangles. There are the handmade silver bangles that are a solid circle which you slip your hand through, and those that are a silver cuff bracelet with an opening on the underside for you to slide over your wrist. The solid circle type is the strongest, however, because it is an unbroken circle, there is no flexibility on the size, so you need to be sure of the lady's wrist size or pick one that has a hidden hinge. The cuff style can be adjusted for a perfect fit and is suitable for a broader range of wrist sizes or for those with larger hands and smaller wrists, but they should be treated with respect when fitting, as repeated flexing will eventually snap the silver.
Women's Sterling Silver Bangles for Wrists of All Sizes: Thin, Large or Chunky Silver Bangles & Bangles for Petite Wrists
Once you've decided on the type and scale of the bangle, you need to pick the perfect size. Bangles are the trickiest jewellery to get right, so it's essential to measure the wrist and hand accurately to make sure that whatever solid silver bangle you choose is a perfect fit. Below, are a few tips that will help you get an accurate measurement before purchasing a sterling silver bangle in the UK.
Measuring an existing Bangle.
One of the easiest ways to determine what size bangle you require, is to measure an existing bangle. To avoid confusion, always measure the inner diameter. Most standard silver bangles sold online are 6.5cm across. However at Corazon, we cater for larger and smaller wrists and offer many of our most popular bangles in 6 & 7cm diameters as well.
Measuring the Wrist
If the bangle is a C-shape cuff with an opening, or a hinged full circle, simply measure the circumference of the wrist with a tape measure or piece of string and a ruler. If it's a full circle that needs to slip over the hand, you need to measure not only the wrist, but also the hand at its widest point. To do this, hold out your hand with your fingers straight out and touch the tip of your little finger with your thumb. Doing this will make your hand as small as possible. Ideally, you will want to get someone else (it does require three hands!) to then measure around the widest point (usually at the knuckles) to give you the circumference that you need to get your hand through the bangle.
You have Your Wrist Measurements. What Now?
Now that you have your measurements, narrow down your choices of design and compare them against the diameters and recommended wrist sizes we provide for each of our designer bangles. If in doubt, give us a shout.
Wear & Tear - Ladies Solid Silver Bangles - Polished or Textured?
As bangles have a large flat surface, they tend to show scratches easily so if you are planning to wear it every day you may want to go for a hammered or textured finish which won't show wear and tear in the same way. If it is a piece for special occasions, then the smooth silver bangles look stunning and can be kept scratch free by storing them separately in a special box. If the worst happens, most jewellers can polish small scratches off for you for a reasonable price.
