Italian Bracelets

Italy is known throughout the world for producing some of the most exquisite works of gold jewelry that you can find. You will find that many jewelry stores make a point of advertising Italian gold, particularly chains for necklaces and bracelets. When the focal point is the stunning metal itself and the craftsmanship of the piece is given the opportunity to shine even in the simplest but most flawlessly executed designs, that is the tradition of Italian goldsmithing.

Italian jewelers can work with old-world handcrafting methods as well as with state-of-the-art processes like electroforming and microfusion. Techniques like diamond cutting have been perfected in Italy. If you get a gold bracelet that was diamond cut poorly or by someone without the optimal equipment or the best skills, you will end up with a rough surface that will snag on clothing and even scratch your skin. The best Italian work, however, will sparkle from all of the perfect facets.

Beautiful Traditional and Modern Italian Bracelets

You can expect Italian designers to produce unique styles and finishes, as well as the simplest and most traditional pieces. Whether you want a subtle combination of rose gold and white gold in a delicate box link, or a bold and aggressive chunky anchor link bracelet in solid 14k yellow gold, look no further than Italian chains. And you should always look for wholesale--there's no reason to pay more when the quality of wholesale is often the same quality as what you could buy from a higher end retailer, especially in Italian gold.

If you want to buy something special, consider a charm bracelet. Charm bracelets in some form or another have been around since ancient Egypt (and probably before). During WWII, there was a rise in their popularity in the U.S. as men fighting overseas began to make a point of giving charms to the women in their lives back home. In the 1980s, an Italian designer started a new craze for charm bracelets, broadening the range of charms that people might wear to include pictures, letters, gemstones, and symbols.
