Bangle bracelets have been in existence since long before what we consider modern civilization. Today, they continue to be appreciated in different cultures around the globe. They are often gifted to commemorate special life occasions, such as christenings and weddings.

What defines a bangle bracelet is its rigid, circular, or oval shape, which either fastens with a clasp or hook, or it may slip on without a fastening. Oftentimes minimalist by default, some may be more decorative, adorned with enamel and gemstones, or engraved.

The beauty of gold bangles is that they never go out of style, and can be worn alone for an understated everyday look or stacked for a maximalist and eclectic approach.

The History Of Bangle Bracelets

Dating back to almost 5,000 years ago in what is now Pakistan, bangle bracelets were discovered at the Mohenjo-Daro archaeological site. A 4,500-year-old bronze sculpture known as 'Dancing Girl' was discovered of a girl adorned in bangles, demonstrating the cultural significance of bangle bracelets even thousands of years ago. 

Bangles from jade are a popular gift in China, given to children due to beliefs that jade is a protective element. However, they are particularly prominent in South Asian culture. In India, bangles differ depending on the region, and they are often worn at weddings. Gold bangles are particularly viewed as a sign of prosperity and wealth.

2. Hermès Enamel Bangle

Hermès designed its first bracelet back in 1938, but it wasn’t until the ‘70s that the enamel bangle bracelets were released.

These bracelets are reimagined each season and come in various widths from extra wide to extra narrow.

3. David Yurman Cable Bangle

There were several sources of inspiration for David Yurman when it came to designing the Cable bracelet. The first is a New York City landmark, the Brooklyn Bridge. A fan of the bridge’s architecture, it was specifically the twisted cables that feature along the bridge that influenced the design of the Cable line-up.

Another part of Yurman’s life that shaped the creation of the iconic bracelet is ancient jewels that he saw at museums.

4. Tiffany & Co. Atlas Bangle

Another gold bangle to take its influence from a New York location, the Tiffany & Co. Atlas bangle is inspired by the Roman numerals on the clock at the brand’s flagship store. Designed with or without diamonds, the style comes in different widths for alternative styling options.

Price range retail: $7,600 - $11,000

5. Cartier Trinity Bangle

A Cartier classic, the Trinity line-up includes the Trinity bangle. This bracelet incorporates three bangles that are entwined, often in a mixed metal construction.
