History of the Bracelet
The term bracelet comes from the Greek “Brachile” which means “of the arm” through the Old French word “Bracel” and the oldest bracelet ever found was in Turkey, dating back to about 7,500 BC.
At first, bracelets were made from materials such as bone, wood, and stone as they had a religious significance to them. One of the most famous and most recognized bracelets from history is the Scarab Bracelet from ancient Egypt. As scarabs represented regeneration and rebirth they were often carved into and used as jewellery, often being wrapped into the bandages of mummies.
“Martenitsa” is a Bulgarian tradition that involves tying a string of red and white around the wrist for spring to come sooner by pleasing Baba Marta, a figure in Bulgarian mythology who brings the end of summer and the beginning of spring with her.
In Greece, Martis was celebrated by weaving together a bracelet of red and white and wearing it around the wrist until the end of summer. They believed this would protect the skin from the harsh Greek sun. In India, bracelets or bangles were worn to symbolize marital status and wealth, while the Azabache Bracelets of Latin America were worn to protect the wearer from the evil eye.
Modern Day Bracelets
By the 20th century, the US began to mass produce bracelets, making them more affordable and more accessible as jewellery for the masses. It was during the seventies when women began to demand more variety in their jewellery, causing an explosion of different styles and types of bracelet designs such as beaded strands, wide cuffs, thin chains and slender bangles, a lot of which we still use in our modern and contemporary bracelet designs.
Types of Bracelet Designs
Today, there are many different styles of bracelets, each made in different materials and with different techniques. These are often based on bracelets made for specific purposes or that have some kind of superstitious belief attached to them such as karma bracelets, which are made of wooden beads, sometimes containing special charms, charm bracelets, (which are bracelets that carry trinkets or decorative pendants which has some significance or importance to the wearer) and many more.
Tennis bracelets, despite their misleading name, are diamond line bracelets. The term “tennis bracelet” was coined when Chris Evert’s diamond bracelet fell onto the court in 1987 during the US Open, and she claimed to have dropped her “tennis bracelet.”
