Bracelet is a piece of jewelry that embraces the wrist and enhances the beauty of a slender hand. The name bracelet is taken from the Latin word ‘brachile”, which means “of the arm”. Bracelets give an exotic look and there is no woman who wouldn’t want to show off this ornament dangling from her wrist.

Bracelets have been worn for a long time. Our ancestors wore bracelets made of wood, beads, stones, bone strips etc. Bone strips were formed into rings and then fastened in a circle with metal clasps. Metal and ivory were also used in the 4th century.

There are several superstitions associated with bracelets in several parts of the world. Some believe that certain bracelets ward off evil, while others believe they bring good luck. There is a Greek superstition where mothers make bracelets (Martis) with red and white string and tie them on their children’s wrists on March 1st. They believe that wearing these bracelets will ensure that the sun does not burn their cheeks and they remain pink in color. After midnight, they are thrown into a bonfire.

Bracelets in the modern day are made of a variety of materials. They are made from precious metals like gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and white gold. Precious gemstones set in precious metal bracelets, bestow grandeur and incomparable elegance. To make them more affordable to the common man, they are even made with cheaper materials like plastic, beads, glass etc. Bangles are also a form of bracelets, which are used extensively in India. These can be in plain form or set with stones. When bangles made of glass are worn together they give out a tinkling sound that is beautiful. Every material known to man is used in the making of bracelets.

There is a bracelet for almost every occasion and even sports are not left behind. There are charm bracelets, tennis bracelets, sports bracelets, slap bracelets etc. Colored silicon rubber is used in the production of sports bracelets and this trend has been started by Lance Armstrong, in the form of wristbands, for cancer awareness. The tennis bracelet is also called a thin line diamond bracelet. They are thin and elegant and have a symmetrical pattern of diamonds. When talking about tennis bracelets, Chris Evert, the tennis star comes to mind as she was not only famous for her bracelets, but she is said to have lost one during the US Open in 1987 and the game had to be paused while she searched for her precious bracelet. This is when the ‘tennis bracelet’ name was given to the thin line diamond bracelets.
