Bracelets are totally under-rated, and largely ignored as an essential piece of jewelry. And I don’t mean bangles, I mean bracelets, slinky chains wrapped around your wrist…now that I have one I love again, I feel naked without it. I love to wear pieces of jewelry I don’t have to think about, i.e., take off. I received my Melissa Joy Manning earrings and bracelet from Persimmon a couple of months ago, and they’ve been on since the second I opened the beautifully wrapped package.
Naturally I look for bracelets I can wear all the time, so they need to be only metal, and not gold-plated or vermeil. I have had my share of both types of jewelry, and I won’t buy it anymore. Pieces I’ve loved are fading, and the gold-plating is starting to wear off, making them look cheap. And they definitely weren’t. Ugh.
So, speaking of Persimmon…I’m still looking for the perfect necklace to go with my new “adult” bracelet and earrings, so I check the site out every chance I get. But the bracelets are always what catch my eye first. They’re usually more affordable than necklaces, thus, more tempting…
Here are some of my favorites, and they’re all just around $200:
