BFF Bracelets

BFF Bracelets

Do you remember how when you were a kid, you would exchange friendship bracelets? Woven and colorful, they were pretty, sure, but also proof of how tight you and your BFF were. It was like proclaiming to the world your loyalty (and likeability!). Sometimes I wonder if there could be an adult version of this. Like delicate gold instead of cotton thread but equally fun to exchange. Do you miss friendship bracelets at all?

  • Although I prize my girlfriends, nothing can compare with when my daughter presented me with heart necklaces, that said “I love Mom.” It doesn’t get better than that.
    That said, for one of those birthdays that involves changing decades, I got my BFF a pair of earrings with her birth stone. And she gave me a bracelet that I treasure.

  • Yes I love the idea of the fine delicate gold, or something alike…
    Lets start the trend xx

    I love the heart bracelet!! Can I buy it online?

  • Always think a girls arms look naked without some nice gold bracelets adorning them.

  • Never had one!
    The idea is lovely, I think. :)


  • I like the idea! A few years ago I got friendship bracelets from Zulu Sport- they are delicate beaded bracelets handmade by Women in Kenya- so it is also for a good cause. My friend and I wear them often!

  • Une amie m’en a justement offert un il y a quelques mois avant que je parte en voyage quelques mois (et on est toutes les 2 dans la trentaine ahah).
    Une fine cordelette de couleur tressée avec une chaine en or, corde grise pour elle et verte pour moi :)

  • Love this post and this idea! Would totally do it with my friends.

  • magnifiques! Ou peut on trouver tous ces bracelets?? En ligne? Magasins? Merci :)))))

  • I love friendship jewelry and was so touched when my first best friend made me a daisy bracelet (oh joy!)

    One of my best friends Lisa gave me one at the end of last year and every time I see it – I get a warm happy heart feeling. Pomme613 makes the best bracelets – she’s an Israeli designer who makes bracelets out of 18k gold and strings collected from her travels :)

  • Yeah ! Last month with my best friend we made that kind of bracelet! We choose a bracelet from Wuki jewels ( I think it’s the what you want bracelet… Anyway) it’ s like an identity bracelet in gold, very thin and clean. And on it we engrave something very personal for both of us. I really really love it, it’s personal, unique and precious!!!

  • I get my friends Alex and Ani bracelets. I think its so sweet when we meet up and they’re wearing them! Another friend of mine got us both “living locket” bracelets, that we can fill with whatever we want. I think these kinds of (symbolic) jewelry are good because they remind us of our friends even when we’re not with them :)
