"J" is for "Jaime": The Whistle & Bango Initial Bangle


I don't know why, but I'm a sucker for anything that's monogrammed or that has the potential to be monogrammed. Narcissistic, perhaps, but I've had my eye on Whistle & Bango's beautiful enamel initial bangles for quite a while now. When I tried it on at Stylist Live a few weeks back after chatting to the founders Ania and Rosie, I was won over by the pretty, shiny wrist candy and the delightful way it sounded when jangling against my rose gold watch.


Originally designed with postcodes in mind (that's a thing in London, btw, postcode pride), Whistle & Bango's bracelets are made from materials designed to withstand everyday wear and tear: carbon-rich stainless steel plate is filled with enamel then hand-painted with gloss before being plated with gold or silver, resulting in a beautifully polished finish.

Aside from sitting prettily your wrist, there's also a philanthropic cause behind the enamel bangles: a percentage of every sale goes to The Single Homeless Project, which seeks to prevent homelessness and promote social inclusion.


I love the simplicity of the Whistle & Bango bangle; it goes with everything but adds a chic touch to all my outfits. I'm considering adding another to my collection - one with my London postcode engraved on one side and my U.S. hometown zipcode engraved on the other. The only problem is picking a color!

Whistle & Bango is offering Angloyankophile readers an exclusive discount of 20% off your bangle of choice: just enter JAIME20 at check out and enjoy! (p.s. a bespoke bangle with a significant date or set of initials would make a great Christmas present!)

    1. Thanks, Courtney! I love it and wear it almost every day ... that's also because I wear a lot of black, haha!

  2. Such a beautiful and classy bangle. 'J' is also quite a nice looking letter. I always feel that 'F' looks a bit clunky when monogrammed...

    1. I love it, Frankie! Also, you're not the only one who dislikes your initial ... I had a friend who saw my post on Instagram and says she dislikes her initial ('K'). I have no idea why!!!

  4. Thank you for this wonderful post Jamie. We love how you photograph the bangle. We're so pleased you treated yourself to one and would love to create your postcode and zip code combo - perhaps one for your Christmas list? Rosie x

  5. It is very pretty ... but not for me, because I have incredibly skinny wrists and it would be flapping somewhere near my knuckles or elbow!

    1. I know what you mean, Ruth - I have absurdly skinny wrists and have a lot of problems finding bracelets that fit me. Thankfully, this comes in two sizes: small and regular - I find that the small one works quite well on my teeny tiny wrists!
