Stacked bracelets are a statement to watch

These four stacked bracelets are full of colour, comfortable materials and creative details.

Sporting a stack of bracelets is a style statement that dates back thousands of years to ancient Rome and the Maya empire — cuffs and bangles are among the oldest forms of jewellery ever recorded.

Many were crafted from stone, shells, copper, and glass. Today, four top designers are interpreting the stacked look in their own ways, adding colour, comfortable materials, and creative details…

Carolina Bucci

Fourth-generation Florentine jewellery designer Carolina Bucci brings a modern point of view to her historically informed designs, as shown with her pliable Twister Luxe bracelet, an innovative creation that is comprised of several rondelles strung on an 18-karat-gold chain and encased by a stainless-steel spring, which allows for greater elasticity.

This vibrant example is plated with 18-karat yellow, white, pink, and black gold as well as a rainbow of gems, which will pair nicely with additional bracelets, $US15,600 (about $A20,590). (carolinabucci.com)

Martin Katz

Designed to be glamorous _and_ comfortable, Martin Katz's three-row bracelet, $US29,000 (about $A38,280), holds 124 diamonds in a flexible, lightweight spring-wire setting, which bends and adapts to the movements of the wearer. (martinkatz.com)

Jemma Wynne

Jemma Wynne's smooth 18-karat yellow-gold Open Cuffs, $US5,670 to $US11,550 (about $A7485 to $A15,245), are modern and chic; each is dotted with colourful gems like emeralds, purple sapphires, and deep blue tanzanite. (jemmawynne.com)

Christopher Designs

Round and specially cut diamonds accent each of the ornate 18-karat gold bangles in this medley from New York's Christopher Designs, $US3,000 to $US19,000 (about $A3960 to $A25,080). Separately, each piece makes its own distinct statement, but grouped together they create a bold look with lots of enchanting details. (lamourcrisscut.com)
