This jewelry blog shares a beginner's guide to Scout Curated Wears.
Scout Curated Wears is one of our jewelry lines here at GLB and it's so popular! With regular releases, a huge choice of styles and an amazingly accessible price point, it's easy to see why it's developed such a following.
For our in store customers, it's easy to walk in and look over the displays and get a good feel for the brand. For our online customers however, it can be a really confusing brand. There's a lot of different styles of wraps and bracelets and it can just feel a little overwhelming when the brand isn't physically in front of you. With the Scout Fall 2021 collection having just launched, we decided to share a beginner's guide to help give our online customers a better feel for the brand and how all of these bracelets compare to each other.
One vital point to remember about Scout is that they are one size fits all. This removes so much stress from shopping the line and makes them ideal for gifting too. Choose your color or favorite gemstones, check out and you'll have no stress worrying that what arrives won't fit.
At the heart of the Scout line are gemstone bracelets & earrings designed for stacking and layering. That said they do also have a range of crystal bracelets too.
The Scout "wraps" are pieces that can be used as either bracelets or necklaces. For bracelets you simply wrap them around the wrist multiple times. Meanwhile for a necklace you wear it as a single strand around the neck.
Many of the gemstones bracelet and wraps are available in different styles. Most of the different bracelet styles are defined by the size of the gemstones; some are just chunkier than others. This is what makes this brand so much fun! You might want smaller stones for lots of layers and chunkier stones to wear alone. Maybe you want to mix and match. It's completely upto you.
Scout Curated Wears Diffuser Bracelets
The chunkiest of the Scout bracelets are the Diffuser Bracelets. These feature 14 mm gemstones and a single piece of lava stone, which is the porous looking stone at the forefront of this image.
These bracelets are designed to hold a couple of drops of your favorite essential oil. The lava stone will absorb the oil and diffuse it throughout the day. You'll not only experience the benefits of the oil but also the scent will also be around you all day.
These bracelets are chunky enough to wear alone and still be eye catching, or you can mix and match them with your other Scout bracelets.
In this image the Diffuser Bracelet is the furthest from my hand. This gives you an idea of how chunky these bracelets are.
This particular stack features the Diffuser Bracelet, a Scout Wrap and a Pearl & Gemstone Bracelet so you can compare the sizes directly on the wrist.
Scout Curated Wears Pearl & Gemstone Bracelet
The Scout Pearl & Gemstone Bracelets are the next down in terms of size and these use 10 mm gemstone beads. Each has a single pearl bead and they can vary a little in size precisely because they're natural, freshwater pearls.
