Different Types of Bangle Designs

Bangles are a popular, both modern and traditional, Indian accessory. It is also a well-known accessory in Western countries, but it is mostly preferred and regarded as an auspicious traditional wear in India. There are many different types of bangles that can be worn, and each occasion requires a different type of bangle. You can even get delicate bangles with different patterns and designs that are available based on the size of your wrist.

Bangle designs can be thought of in terms of their structure, materials used, and style. While the structure and material of the bangle are important considerations, it is their styles that distinguish them and make them treasured by their wearers. Bangles have become staples in both women’s and men’s jewelry collections in the West, but with a focus on their ornamental and aesthetic value rather than their symbolic value. They can be worn alone, in pairs, or in groups of three, and some women layer them heavily on both wrists and combine them with bracelets.

So, are you perplexed about which bangle to wear for which occasion? Here are different types of bangles, you must know about.

  1. Round Bangles: The most common type of bangle is a solid round bangle with no spacers. These are typically uniform circular shapes that can be styled with twists or charms. Because of the round shape, the bangle must be larger than the wrist in order to fit over the hand. 
  2. Torque Bangles: Torque bangles have a gap on one side that allows the bangle to be slipped directly on the arm above the wrist. The advantage of this is that the bangle is usually smaller than the wrist and can be worn comfortably without falling off the wrist. This allows the bangle to be more easily slipped on and off the wrist than pointed or flattened ends.
  3. Cuff Bangles: Cuff bangles, also known as cuff bracelets, are wider bangles worn around the wrist that are typically made of flattened and shaped metals, usually gold or silver. The metal is typically flattened to form the basic shape of the cuff and then rounded to fit comfortably around the wrist. Cuff bangles, like torques, usually have a gap to allow the cuff to slip onto the arm without being drawn up the wrist.
  4. Slave Bangles : Slave bangles have a very distinct history, which is reflected in the contemporary style. The fact that slave bangles can be worn comfortably on the wrist or upper arm is an important feature. Slave bangles were traditionally worn on both the lower and upper arm.
  5. Engraved Bangles: Engraving on gemstones has long been a popular form of personalization, and the ancient Egyptians used engraving for worship and offerings. In today’s modern world, engraving personalized messages on bangles is very popular.
