Why separate bracelets and rings when you could combine both into one?

Wearing bracelets and rings together just became much easier with the new trend - Slave Bracelets. Major brands such as APM Monaco and Djula have been spotted featuring "Slave Bracelets" in upcoming collections. A culturally inspired piece of jewelry playing upon aesthetic flavors of their heritage, Slave Bracelets are a new must have when it comes to selecting a new piece of statement jewelry to invest in. Not only can these pieces reincarnate and inspire your sense of beauty and fashion, but are easily available, stylish, and incredibly eye catching- adding a subtle, yet pronounced layer to your style.

"Slave Bracelets" might not be the term you envision for such a delicate piece of jewelry. The bracelet itself originates from North America where they were popular among the Indian community and gained even more popularity during the 1920s with the androgynous movement. The term has nothing to do with subservience, as it got its name because the ring is enslaved to the bracelet and vice versa. It is a harsh definition, still the manner in which the ring intertwines with the bracelet can be viewed as a connection of love, rather than slavery.

To avoid misinterpreted connotations, the bracelet was then called Flower Bracelet in the wake of the Hippie movement in the 1960s, when it started to gain popularity within the youth culture. Call it what you want, but you will soon agree that this statement piece will truly "enslave" you, making it a piece that you simply won't want to take off.

I like to invest in statement pieces when it comes to jewelry, and I usually don't follow trends. I stick to the classic, timeless pieces that I know will go with anything. Recently, when I was first introduced to the Slave Bracelet I became unfaithful to one of my favorite, go to pieces of jewelry- the full-finger ring.

Upgrading to this accessory was worth it. The hand piece seemed quite feminine and delicate on my slim hand, yet radiated the same sense of drama that makes one's style enigmatic. Exactly what I needed, but I had to choose between the full-finger ring or the bracelet. Changing my statement piece was a risk worth taking.

The allure they provide cannot be ignored. This signature style is no doubt a crowd pleaser. Those sitting next to you are intrigued as the Slave Bracelet is shimmering in the sunlight in unison with your sparkling champagne. Luxury is an attitude; let the Slave Bracelet provoke it.
