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. Charm bracelets
contain charms like little hearts, fairies, angels, crosses etc. These
charms have a meaning and signify something important in the person‟s
life.Bracelet is a piece of jewelry that embraces the wrist and enhances
