Italian Bracelets


The origins of the 'bracelet' go right back to Ancient Greece and come from the Greek word ‘brachile’ which means 'of the arm'. Back then, the bracelets we know and love today were leather armbands worn by Greek soldiers and often decorated with gold, silver, and precious stones. When women began to wear them, they were already smaller versions, called ‘Bracel-ets’. There are many different types of bracelets. They can be made of beads, gold or silver chains, hold charms or be as simple as a bangle.

Pros & Cons of handmade Italian bracelets:

The world is filled with beautiful items, inspired by beautiful sights. As conscious and mindful travelers, we do our best to learn everything we can about what we’re investing in, especially if that personal investment is jewelry. When considering handmade Italian bracelets, you may be curious about the pros and cons before making your selection.

Handmade Italian bracelet pros include:

Crafted by Artisans. If you value jewelry that is both beautifully made and meaningful, handmade bracelets can have a unique story all their own. Their productions are often inspired by life and the beautiful world around us. This inspiration can impart meaning to their presentation. Handmade Italian bracelets may have unique details all their own, which you cannot be easily found in any other mass-produced bracelet. 

Environmentally friendly. Generally, it is known that mass-market production has various harmful effects on the environment and our resources. Since handmade bracelets are not mass produced, the methods used to produce them can use significantly less energy and other valuable resources. 

High quality materials. Handmade Italian bracelets are typically made by jewelry artisans from Italy. Artisans often use a higher quality of materials, which is difficult to find in the finished product of mass produced jewelry. It can also be seen that mass produced jewelry uses potentially dirty metal blends that irritate sensitive skin and show wear quicker. 

Prompt and friendly customer service. Prompt customer-friendly service is a staple of handmade jewelry brands. Italeau provides exceptional customer service to our valued clients. We deeply enjoy receiving testimonials from our customers and connecting with our customers to ensure their experience is unforgettable and personalized.

Considering the benefits is always fun! However, learning more about possible cons is also important when making jewelry selections. The cons of handmade Italian bracelets can include:

High price point. The Italian government enforces stringent quality measures. Italian jewelry craftsmen tend to produce very high quality pieces. Pricing can align with quality resulting in a higher price point, especially when compared to non-handmade pieces. 

Pre-order wait time. Like most things, beauty and true craftsmanship takes time. Handmade Italian bracelets take longer to make, which can mean your pieces may arrive to you later than desired.  

Regardless of the pros and cons relating to handmade bracelets, the handmade Italian bracelets from Italeau are crafted with quality materials and chic designs. 


Caring for crystal bracelets:

Italian crystal bracelets can be extremely joyful and versatile jewelry pieces. They are meant to garner attention immediately. Moreover, crystal bracelets can be worn for every occasion and many people choose to wear them on a daily basis. If you’re looking for a versatile piece you’ll never want to take off, knowing how to care for and clean your handcrafted crystal bracelet can be very important. 

The intention is to keep your crystal bracelet’s brilliance as long as possible. However, exposure to dirt, sun, chemicals, and moisture can dull your favorite jewelry pieces over time. Not to mention, beautiful handcrafted pieces may tarnish over time that makes them look overly worn and lose luster.

Refrain from wearing your crystal bracelet when applying moisturizers, sunscreen, tanning lotion, or perfume. Take off your crystal bracelet before gardening, doing household chores, or participating in any strenuous activities.Apply your cosmetics first before fastening your crystal bracelet, so that it will not be affected by the chemicals. Keep your crystal bracelet in a jewelry box or pouch away from other metals. Additional contact may cause damage.

A beautiful, handcrafted crystal bracelet is something of value, monetarily and sentimentally. We want to protect our investment and keep our favorite pieces looking like new. Especially since each Italeau crystal bracelet is like a work of art, uniquely handcrafted and unlike any other. Furthermore, proper crystal bracelet care will not only prevent damage, but also will help ensure the natural beauty of the crystals continue to shine. 

Additionally, to keep your crystal bracelets beautiful for years to come, you can do the following to clean your bracelet. When cleaning your crystal bracelet, you can use a soft, damp cloth to wipe down the bracelet after wearing it. You should avoid using harsh chemicals when cleaning.

Are gold bracelets or silver bracelets better for me?

What team are you on? The battle between gold and silver is the tale as old as time. Some may have a preference, but most still struggle deciding if gold or silver bracelets are better for them.

Many discover what metal color works for them based on skin tone. Generally, gold can be better suited for a warmer skin coloring, while silver can be better suited for a cooler skin coloring. If you need additional guidance on discovering what type of skin tone you have, you can look at the veins on the inside of your wrist.

If your veins are blue, silver bracelets may be perfect for you.

You may also want to change up your jewelry depending on the season. In the winter you may have paler skin, but in the summer your skin tans and hair becomes a warmer-toned brown. So, in the winter you might stick with silver. Then enjoy wearing gold bracelets in the summer months. There is just something about gold bracelets with a little sparkle that just adds to the warm beachy glow.
