In the era of the Eras Tour, one jewelry style has become more prevalent: friendship bracelets. Previously just a cherished childhood rite, exchanging friendship bracelets has experienced a remarkable resurgence thanks to Taylor Swift’s lyric about them in the song “You’re on Your Own, Kid.”
These bracelets are not only for Swifties who exchange homemade ones at concerts, but for any adult looking to relive fond memories—or add a charming piece of jewelry to their wardrobe.
Jewelry designers have taken note of the trend, and there are now plenty of interpretations of friendship bracelets on the market, including fine and high-end options that take this type of bracelet into a whole new realm.
Today’s friendship bracelets might be rendered in 18k gold and adorned with precious sapphires, rubies, or emeralds, yet their playful design elements and color combinations give them the same carefree effect as those we wore as children. They might still be woven from thread, but adorned with a turquoise heart charm that puts them in a new category. And, of course, there are bracelets with lettered beads that spread positivity spelling out words like love and happy. The beads on these bracelets aren’t run-of-the-mill, though—they’re hand-painted.
We’ve rounded up five of the best luxury friendship bracelets for adults to get in on the fun. They combine all of the color you expect from a friendship bracelet with high-quality elements, ensuring they will last far longer than whatever era.
