Tennis Bracelets and Timepieces - A Perfect Pair?

Do you have a tennis bracelet that you love, but you don't know how to wear your tennis bracelet with a watch? Or maybe you just got a new watch and are wondering how to style your tennis bracelet with it. No worries! We are here to help. In this post, we will show you what to consider when wearing a tennis bracelet with a wristwatch. Whether you are dressing up for a formal event or just want to add some extra flair to your everyday look, we have got you covered!

How to match a Watch and Tennis Bracelet

Wearing a watch and a tennis bracelet is a fantastic way to add interest and flair to your look. Choose whatever style of watch you wish, as long as it goes with the design of your tennis bracelet. If your whole look is more reserved and formal, you might not want to combine an athletic-style timepiece with a costly diamond tennis bracelet. If your style is more eclectic, go for it! Embrace various combinations if you have an eclectic sense of style. Our brand new Phoebe Bracelet is an excellent choice if you look for something a bit more unconventional.

Stacking Multiple Tennis Bracelets with a Wristwatch

Another important aspect is colour. Think about the metal colour of your tennis bracelet and the colour of your timepiece. Both colours should either go well together or complement one another. This isn't just a problem with timepieces and bracelets. The same rule applies to other accessories, including earrings, or rings. Mixing metals can be tricky and if you are a novice, picking a more colour-consistent stack is the safer choice. Timepieces with a leather strap can be combined with different metals types and colours. If you feel more comfortable combining different colours and styles and are used to stacking earrings, take a bold approach and try a colour combo that stands out.

Should You Wear Tennis Bracelet and Watch on the Same Arm?

If you are wearing just one bracelet, keep it away from your watch. To produce a symmetrical appearance, wear it on the other wrist. This concept is referred to as  "visual weight": Consider your two wrists as the two sides of a scale. Make sure that neither side is heavier than the other when getting dressed. On the opposite side of the spectrum, if you are wearing multiple bracelets, consider slipping one beside your watch to create a balanced impression. Also make sure the tennis bracelet is not too loose. It's preferable to select a bracelet that fits comfortably around your wrist and hangs either above or below the watch. Many of our tennis bracelets are available in 16 or 18cm length to make sure they fit you perfectly (take a look at our best-selling Vianne Round Prong Tennis Bracelet). 

Selecting the Right Size Tennis Bracelet to Pair with Your Watch

This may be a no-brainer, but just to make sure: Do not wear an enormous bracelet on the same wrist as your watch. It's all about weight balance again. If you have something showy that you must wear because it compliments the rest of your outfit, put it on the other hand. At the same time, don't allow your watch and bracelets to be too similar in width. It's a question of visual weight - a bulkier timepiece will necessitate a wider bracelet. Our Alexis White Bracelet is a good choice to complement a larger wristwatch. It features three rows of round brilliant cut stones and comes with an adjustable CARAT* slider for a comfortable fit.
