Bracelets

The Bracelet is a welcomed Christmas gift and is rich in history, variety and styles. The quintessential accessory for any  wardrobe, this accessory can be worn daily or for special occasions and adds a  final polish to the well-dressed man or woman.

History of Bracelets

This jewelry dates back to the Egyptian  times. At that time, materials like bones, stones, and wood were used to  represent religious and spiritual interests. It’s thought that even mummies  were adorned with bracelets to protect them in the afterlife.   In ancient Greece, a bracelet woven of red  and white string was often worn on the first day of March through the end of  summer, protecting the wearer’s skin from the sun. And in parts of India, you were able to  determine the marital status of a woman by the number of bangles (a type of  bracelet) she wore — and this is still true today.

Types of Bracelets

There are many types of bracelets that can be worn by both men and women, for a  number of different reasons beyond that of fashion:

  • Ankle  brackets:  worn around the ankle
  • Medicinal  bracelets:  providing medical information
  • Friendship  bracelets:  given as a token of one’s friendship
  • Memorial  bracelets:  worn in honor of someone who has passed away

Bracelet  Styles

As with most jewelry, there are a wide variety of styles  to choose from when it comes to giving a bracelet as a Christmas gift.  Depending upon the likes of the intended receiver, you may consider these  styles as gifts:

  • Charm  bracelet: special and unique charms, such as small decorative pendants, these  charms represent the important things in the life of the wearer.
  • Bangles:  These are bracelets made with metal, sometimes also made of wood, or glass and  are solid in form. When wearing such bangles any movement of the arm causes the  bangles to create sounds; often similar to that of wind chimes.
  • Beaded  bracelets: Made from a variety of different beads of different colors, shapes and  sizes these bracelets are common in Arizona, Nevada, Texas and New Mexico due  to the Indian heritage of these states.
  • Link  bracelets: Made from a variety of metals, gemstones and the like, these  bracelets are connected or linked together.
  • Wristband  bracelets: Typically worn around one’s entire wrist, this kind of bracelet is  made with various materials including metal, and varies in width for fashion  and/or informational purposes.
