Twelve Friendship Bracelets For Your Circle (Near and Far)

  • 5768

The idea of friendship bracelets may bring you back to childhood, but they’re just as relevant in adulthood as the days of sleep away camp (and no longer made of cheap colorful thread). There’s the old adage that goes something like this: “friends are the family you choose.” And, in these times, there’s nothing that brings the feeling of togetherness no matter how physically far apart you may be as a friendship bracelet.

Silver, or gold, or diamonds, or precious stones, or colorful beads are all options for you and your friends. And the necessity of matching patterns of your teenage years don’t have to ring true today: you and your friends can have versions of the same bracelet to suit your different styles.

“It’s so special to look down at your wrist every day and be reminded of someone you love,” says jeweler Jennifer Meyer. “The most successful friendship bracelets are those that you never have to take off and that will last forever.”

And just when you’re not sure you’re doing it right, Meyer let us know there’s no perfect formula for this: “I don’t believe there’s a science to picking the perfect friendship bracelet,” she says. “In my experience, it just needs to be something that you and your friend(s) love and want to wear every day!”
