10. Friendship bracelets

If you spent your childhood weaving friendship bracelets out of thread, you'll know how much pleasure these retro accessories are. They've made a comeback of late with both designer and high street brands offering a range of boho-chic designs that will take you on a walk down memory lane while adding a modern twist. Friendship charm bracelets and bangles with sentimental messages are also popular .

eBay recommends: Buying a matching bracelet set before wearing yours and giving the other one to your BFF.

9. Loom bands

Loom bands have taken 2014 by storm and are popular with both kids and adults alike. You can make them yourself using the rubber band and loom kits available from eBay or you can buy them already made saving you the time and effort. Notoriously bright, colourful and fun to wear they can be worn day or night and are surprisingly durable.

8. Anyone for tennis?

As the nights draw in and the days get shorter, you could always brighten things up a little with an eye-catching tennis bracelet. Typically, these are thin, single strand bangles comprised of small diamonds that are sure to add a bit of glamour to even the dullest day. They got their unusual name following the US open of 1987 when Chris Evert's bangle broke and she asked for the game to stop until the piece of jewellery was found.

eBay recommends: Rhinestone gems for the day and Swarovski crystals for the evening.

7. Mismatched bracelets

A tower of mismatched bracelets adorning one arm (or both) worked for spring/summer and this style looks set to continue well into winter. A trend that's wonderfully easy to personalise you can literally go to town, piling up your favourite bangles on top of each other for an effortlessly chic look. Try combining a much-loved childhood bracelet with some new funky gems (think bold, bright beads) and you'll have that retro-modern clash that'll turn heads.

eBay recommends: Using chunky translucent beads to add bulk and break up clashing colours.

6. Rose gold bracelets

If you like the idea of a gold bracelet but are not keen on yellow gold, perhaps a rose gold bracelet would be more up your street? A mixture of pure yellow gold and copper, this kind of jewellery has a subtle yet stunning tint that's both elegant and feminine. Rose gold bracelets can be worn as individual bands or stacked for a more extravagant look. With bold styles being in this season, don't be afraid to combine mismatched patterns, shapes and colours to achieve a unique effect.

eBay recommends: Brightening up a cosy winter jumper with layers of embellished rose gold bangles.

5. Pandora bracelets

Pandora charm bracelets offer the perfect way to mark and celebrate life's special events. Each bangle can be wonderfully customised and with charms such as Winter Wonderland, Winter Kiss, Winter Wisp and Winter Mittens you can remember the chilly months in style. As well as charms and beads there are plenty of bangles to choose from including sterling silver, multi-strand and woven-leather designs. Pandora bracelets also make great gifts as do the individual charms.

eBay recommends: Choosing a bracelet to suit your personality and style first before decorating it with beautiful, sentimental charms. Or, buying a meaningful charm for someone who already owns a bracelet.

4. Hand bracelets

If you've got plenty to celebrate during the coming months, why not dress to impress by donning a sensational hand bracelet? Much loved by British luxury fashion house Alexander McQueen, these accessories are as unique and they are elegant and (as their name suggests) decorate the wrist as well as the hand. Often secured by a wrist and a ring cuff they're safe, secure and will help you feel like the belle of the ball. 

eBay recommends: Setting off your new hand bracelet with a well-deserved manicure. Why not, eh?

3. Medallion bracelets

While we're on the subject of larger than life jewels, medallion bracelets are a must-have fashion piece this year. Sure, they're wonderfully over the top but who doesn't need something a little outrageous to liven up a top and jeans combo or a seasonal party dress? Look runway-ready in an instant in a multi-chain statement medallion or opt for a cuff with a beautifully decorated oval or round pendant for something more subtle.

Want to stand out from the crowd? Then make a statement in an oversized/ chunky bracelet designed to dazzle and shine. You won't be short of choice but keep a look out for modern cuffs with Art Deco lines, elaborate detailing and feather trims. The bigger the better so unleash your wild side and let the jewellery do the talking.
