A diamond bracelet is the foundation of every capsule jewellery collection. If you're searching for a classic design to add to your collection, a diamond bracelet is the one to add in.
Diamond bracelets can brighten up any appearance and are excellent for everyday wear, the workplace, and especially formal black-tie events. Even as the "tennis bracelet" is one of the most popular diamond bracelet styles, not every bracelet is the popular "tennis" design. A diamond bracelet can be designed in a variety of distinctive settings to produce a piece that is customised and precisely fitted to each personality.
When looking for the best diamond bracelet, the following are the most common settings and designs to keep in mind.
Bezel or half bezel setting
Tennis bracelets with bezel settings have a circular mount that keeps each diamond in place, whereas half-bezel settings include little bars or half-circles on each side of the diamond to lock the diamond within the frame.
Tennis bracelets with bezels have a modern look and are a fantastic choice if you are active and you want your diamonds to be secure.
Unfortunately, because of the limited light interaction, this setting tends to showcase the metal as much as the stone and can lessen the stone's sparkle.
Prong setting tennis bracelet
The little metal hooks that secure each diamond to a piece of jewellery are known as prongs. Tennis bracelets with prongs are the most common type. The number of prongs in a setting affects how it is designed, with more prongs providing more protection for the diamond.
Bigger diamond carats should be supported by four or even more prongs, with six being the most secure. Smaller carat diamond bracelets, on the other hand, can be fitted securely with three prongs.
Charm bracelets are seeing a fashion comeback. While the original charm bracelet is distinguished by a linked chain adorned with swinging charms, newer varieties have a bezel design in which charms are fused into the setting.
This design is distinguished by a continuous row of diamonds inside the metal. Channel settings, which provide a clear line of colour or glitter, are a very popular design feature. You can choose between round, square, or rectangular diamonds.
Due to the way diamonds are positioned, the channel setting allows for more light contact than bezel settings, giving it a good combination of shine and matte.
Alternative gemstone setting
Instead of the same line of diamonds, another popular option for bracelets is to use gemstones. This gives you access to a world of colour and styles.
Sapphires, emeralds, and rubies are the most preferred gemstones for these types of bracelets since they are valuable gemstones with high monetary worth. You can also choose semi-gemstones if you want you birthstone in your bracelet for example.
