Bracelet & Anklet Basics

An anklet, or ankle bracelet, is a bracelet worn around the ankle. While some bracelet styles also work as anklets, others are intended for the wrist only because of their shape, style, and embellishment.

Common styles of bracelets:


  • Can range from delicate to wide in a variety of materials
  • Often intended to stack as a coordinated set or to mix and match with other bangles or different bracelet styles


  • Tends to be wide
  • Fits tight to the wrist and features an opening into which the wrist slides
  • Often made of metal, but styles come in leather as well

Tennis (or "Line") Bracelet

  • Versatile bracelet that can be used to dress up or down
  • Diamonds are considered a classic for this style
  • The flexible links are designed to be comfortable and move with you

Charm Bracelet

  • A chain is usually the base to which personal charms are added
  • Charms can range in material and can include gemstones and pearls
  • Often, these bracelets are cherished for many years, as the wearer continues to add and collect charms


  • Chains can be worn on their own or as the base for other embellishments
  • There are a number of specific chain styles, but some common ones include box, cable, curb, figaro, rope, and wheat chains

Styles that also work as anklets:

  • Charm: As long as the charms are small enough that they won't get caught or damaged, a few charms on a simple chain make a stylish and personal way to wear an anklet
  • Chain: The ideal style for an anklet, a chain is simple, stylish, and safe
