bangle bracelets


Cultures around the world use ornaments and art to decorate, beautify and sparkle things up, including themselves. Beautification is visually appealing and makes people feel good. A way to add loveliness to ourselves for centuries has been through the wearing of jewelry, one of the most popular pieces being bracelets.

A bracelet is an article of jewelry that is worn around the wrist, lower arm and/or upper arm. Bracelets may have a supportive function, such as holding a wristwatch or other items of jewelry such as religious symbols or charms, or merely as ornamental jewelry to add posh and pizzazz to an outfit. Bracelets are often worn for personal adornment and can be made from a wide range of materials.

Bracelets can be made from metal, leather, cloth, plastic, jewels, rocks, wood, shells, crystals, pearls and many more materials.

Bracelet Fun Fact: Although the term armlet may be technically similar to the word bracelet, an armlet is taken to mean an item that sits on the upper arm. The origin of the term “bracelet” is from the Greek “brachile” meaning “of the arm” via the Old French “bracel.”

Jewelry Fun Fact: The word jewelry is derived from the word jewel, which was Anglicized from the Old French “joule”, and beyond that to the Latin word “jocale”, meaning plaything.

For an exquisite piece of jewelry that will never disappoint you, lather your arms with bracelets. Bangle and jangle in bracelet beauty!

From the National Geographic Society, the Scarab Bracelet is one of the most recognized symbols of ancient Egypt. The scarab represented rebirth and regeneration. Carved scarabs were worn as jewelry and wrapped into the linen bandages of mummies. Myth told of the scarab God, Khepri, pushing the sun across the sky.
