I remember when one sizable diamond tennis bracelet was a serious statement. An elegant strand of sparkling diamonds would take nearly any woman’s breath away. These days though, it seems as though three or four bracelets is barely sufficient!
Take a look at red carpet event photos, and it seems as though any given starlet’s forearm is encased in gold and diamonds from their wrist half way to their elbow. Drew Barrymore, Lindsay Lohan, heck, even Johnny Depp is sporting a wristful of watches and bracelets (though I suppose that with his Midas touch, anything he does gets a pass by fashion standards).
What’s more is that anything goes! Gold, platinum, white gold, diamonds, colored gemstones – all present and accounted for. And it doesn’t stop there – you’ll see modern tennis bracelets mixed in with Art Deco designs and fashion bangles.
If you don’t quite rank yourself amongst the glitterati, you might play it safe with a stack of diamond bangles. But if you are the adventurous type, you might as well go for broke!
