Friendship bracelets make the perfect gift for someone who is very close to you. While these, often, handmade bracelets in themselves resemble the strength and everlasting nature of your friendship, additional elements of the bracelet can be seen as symbolic of an aspect of your friendship.
Choosing the right friendship bracelet takes careful thought. Sometimes, it is nice to know a little about the designer, or the concepts behind the beautiful pieces before giving them as a gift to your friend. By attaching extra meaning, it makes the gift that much more significant.
Friendship bracelets may very well be designed to be given from one close friend to another, however, there is nothing to stop these beautiful pieces to be bought as a romantic gift, or even as a treat for oneself. With many different types of bracelets available, there is a friendship bracelet that will suit everyone.
With so many beautiful friendship bracelets available, we wanted to highlight 10 friendship bracelets to cherish forever. The selection offers subtle and understated bracelets, through to eye-catching, or quirky designs.
