Tennis bracelets are generally accepted as individual diamonds or gemstones placed in settings, then set in a line and held together at the ends by a clasp.
These are commonly solid in form and retain their shape. Some have a clasp, while others do not. If not, the bangle is slipped onto the wrist over the hand.
Cuffs are similar to bangles, solid in form while retaining their shape. Dissimilarly though, a cuff has an opening for the wrist to pass through. There is no closure for the opening; it stays on because of the rigidity of the piece.
Encompassing many styles and forms of bracelets, if they do not fit into the previous categories, they would fall into
this group - for example, pearl bracelets.
Charm bracelets are a way to signify special events, memories, milestones and relationships. A traditional charm bracelet has charms that dangle from the links in the chain. Each charm that is attached to the bracelet usually has significance to the wearer.
