How to Stack Bracelets and Bangles

The must-have styles to build your layered wrist look.

Style your individual look by layering bracelets and bangles in a mix of textures. Whether your style is refined and classic, or you prefer a bold, more-is-more approach, you can customise your wrist stack to suit each different occasion and look.

If you’re just beginning to build your bracelet collection, or you're after some inspiration to start layering, read on for the top styles you need and tips to style a personalised stack.

Bracelet Wardrobe Essentials

1. Gold bangle

A minimalist, precious metal bangle is a timeless essential in every jewellery wardrobe. As a classic and versatile piece, your bangle is also the perfect starting point for your layered wrist look. We love this Oval Bangle in 10kt Yellow Gold which is the perfect width for everyday wear. You could also opt for a rose gold, white gold, or sterling silver bangle depending on your personal style.

2. Chain bracelet

The key to a stylish layered jewellery look is to mix your textures, ensuring each layer adds something new. Start building your stack by introducing a flexible chain bracelet style. Wearing a chain bracelet in the same metal colour as your bangle will keep your look polished. For this look, we’ve layered our 19cm Belcher Bracelet in 10kt Yellow Gold. 

3. Diamond tennis bracelet

An iconic, luxurious must-have, the diamond tennis bracelet will add brilliance to every look. Choose the perfect piece for you with our range of carat weights, from dainty to statement, and white gold or yellow gold settings. For this bracelet stack, we’ve added the Tennis Bracelet with 1 Carat TW of Diamonds in 10kt Yellow Gold. Diamond tennis bracelets can also be worn alone for a refined, yet still eye-catching approach.

4. Dainty diamond bracelet

Keep building your wrist stack and introduce a new texture, with a fine, stone-studded chain bracelet. A delicate diamond style such as our Station Bracelet with 0.10 Carat TW of Diamonds is the perfect piece to tie together your gold and diamond layers; but you could also choose a style with gemstones if you prefer.

5. Personalised bracelet

Create a layered wrist look that’s truly your own by adding a personalised piece. Our new initial bracelets are the perfect way to bring an individual touch to your stack. Wear your own initial, that of a loved one, or any letter that has meaning to you. Another beautiful way to introduce personalisation to your wrist stack is with a birthstone bracelet.

How to Stack

Each of these pieces work together to create a versatile and timeless bracelet wardrobe. For a simple, everyday look, wear one piece at a time or stack only two – such as your gold bangle and chain bracelet; your chain bracelet with your dainty diamond style or personalised bracelet; or stack any of these pieces with your diamond tennis bracelet for added glamour. Build up to three, four, or five layers to create a bold, statement look.
