JK Rowling’s world altered the imaginations of a generation. Harry Potter has become as big a phenomenon as Lord of the Rings or the Chronicles of Narnia.
We’ve all done the sorting hat quizzes on the internet. It even comes into regular conversation sometimes. “What music do you like? What Hogwarts house do you belong to?” (Gryffindor, yo!)
Discover Geek has collected a bunch of Harry Potter bracelets that you can use to express your house pride or simply your fanship. Have a peek!
1. Attention! Fellow Gryffindors, This Awesome Bracelet is Yours for the Taking
It might be a British thing because, in school, we had four houses too. None of those houses were remotely magical, nor did they have fancy plaques or logos. They were the same colors and I guess that would’ve made me a Hufflepuff since my color was yellow. WRONG. I’m a Gryffindor and I’m going to wear this charm bracelet with pride. Join me?
2. For the Slytherins Out There, We’ve Got You Covered Too
The Slytherin bracelet is silver which really goes with the house’s aesthetic. Being a Slytherin doesn’t necessarily mean you’re a bad or deplorable person either. Just because the Malfoys are and… okay, a lot of the bad guys are, doesn’t mean you are. But Snape was, and at the end of the story, wasn’t he one of the two unexpected heroes? A flawed hero, sure, but what hero is perfect?
*This bracelet will not help you speak Parseltongue.
3. Hufflepuffs Are the Most Loyal and Calm of People, Showcase Your Hufflepuff Pride
So they’re not “brave” like Gryffindors, they’re not “smart” like Ravenclaws or “ambitious” like Slytherin. That’s because they’re all of that and so much more. Just ask Cedric Diggory (after you resurrect him from the grave). Wasn’t he integral to a huge part of the story? Yep. Because he was a Hufflepuff and Hufflepuffs are awesome. They’re indie-awesome. They’re so awesome, nobody knows about it. Wear your Hufflepuff Harry Potter bracelet around your wrist and SHOW EVERYONE what you’re made of.
4. And then For the Ravenclaws, the Bookish, Clever, and Smart
A big part of the sorting hat is it taking into account what house you want to be a part of. Harry could easily have been Slytherin had he chose that life. I might’ve been drawn to Ravenclaw, though it’s a house that’s probably the least befitting to my personality. Still, I think you guys are awesome and Luna was my favorite of the younger Harry Potter characters. Well done, Ravenclaws. You just won the spelling bee of my heart.
5. Don’t Be a Snitch, This Harry Potter Bracelet Has That Covered
Anyone else envious we didn’t have Quidditch in high school? I have a feeling I’d have been much more into sports if they involved flying around on a broomstick, I’m not even going to lie. Now you can stay on the ground and just wear the snitch around your wrist, because why wouldn’t you if faced with the option of not being able to fly??
6. Get the Deathly Hallows Bracelet to Save You From Having to Actively Look for the Horcrux
Sounds tempting, doesn’t it? Even more when you consider how wicked this Harry Potter bracelet is, aesthetically speaking. Its base is made with leather and rope, making it look like the exact piece of jewelry Xena: Warrior Princess might wear if she knew about Hogwarts. Come to think of it, it’s the exact kind of jewelry me: Not A Princess or a Warrior would wear too. And I do know about Hogwarts. So trust me.
7. This Five Bracelet Set Can Be Shared with Friends OR Just Wear them All Yourself
Both are admirable actions to take as far as awesome, geeky jewelry goes. Mix and match different kinds of bracelets with different kinds of charms and quotes on them to cast a spell on anyone that sees you. One has Hedwig, another has the Deathly Hallows symbol, another the platform 9 3/4 (which exists and if you find yourself in Kings Cross, meander on over to the gigantic line that’s guaranteed to be there during peak times. There, you shall find.
8. Fantastic Beasts Was SUCH A Good Movie, Now You Get to Have a Bracelet Of It
I have to be honest, I didn’t know what I was expecting when I walked in to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them last year, but I can now say I’m really glad I went. Newt Scamander is famed in Hogwarts for his writing and his name is even seen on the Marauder’s Map in Prisoner of Azkaban. (Seriously! Google it, it’s pretty cool.) Will we ever find out why he was there? Will he ever give us the cute-mole-rat-thing? Only time will tell.
9. A Simple Harry Potter Bracelet that Might Bring You to Tears
At the same time, it might not, but how emotional was the scene where we find out Snape’s Patronus is the doe that’s been following Harry around as a guide? SNAPE. The same Snape that spent a lot of the movies yelling at him and trying to pull him down? Well. Yeah. Snape saw what loss could do and because he loved Lily, he vowed to protect her son so she wouldn’t have to feel it too. And he’ll protect her ALWAYS. Feels.
10. RAVENCLAW – INTELLIGENCE, WISDOM, ORIGINALITY
I’m enjoying the amount of Harry Potter bracelets out there that I want. My wallet, on the other hand, is not. Is it worth it? Heck yes, it’s worth it. These cute bracelets say everything and come in colors for every house so you or your little kid can represent them. Tempted huh? Ravenclaw’s colors are blue and bronze.
11. HUFFLEPUFF – LOYALTY, KINDNESS, DEDICATION
Hufflepuff’s colors are yellow and black. These arm party bracelets all have charms on them; one for each of their houses, the initial of their house, and a jeweled snitch. I remember when these kinds of bracelets were all the rage at parties in the 90s. Attend one (if you’re invited, Hufflepuffs will be) and you’d get bracelets and cake. Oh, the joys of Muggle childhood.
12. SLYTHERIN – CUNNING, AMBITIOUS, RESOURCEFUL
The Slytherin house colors are, fittingly, green like the serpent on their crest and silver like their quick wit. It doesn’t help that green is one of the nicest colors to wear when it comes to jewelry and fashion in general. A little Gryff like me might even be swayed by the power of the forest. Then again, maybe not…
13. GRYFFINDOR – BRAVE, CHIVALROUS, DARING
It’s “saving the BEST til last” not “saving the best til LAST.” I think Hermione Granger said that once in one of McGonagall’s classes but I could be mistaken. I kind of overdosed on mandrake root during the brief time I was able to pretend I had any kind of wizarding blood whatsoever. (I just really wanted to meet Sirius Black, okay.) These Gryffindor bracelets are pretty much gorgeous and perfect for every gryff out there who’s proud.
