Exactly when someone first discovered that tying a vine around the wrist made a pretty decoration isn't known, but people have worn bracelets for centuries. The English word "bracelet" is derived from the Latin word "brachium," which simply means "arm."

The wearing of jewelry for adornment and ritual may have started as far back as 7,000 years ago, and archeologists have found evidence that people wore bracelets in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China. Early bracelets were made of grasses, slender tree limbs, and shells, then copper and bronze. 

What is the spiritual meaning of a bracelet?
A bracelet is a connection to another person, just as tefillin are a connection to our Creator.

 

Bracelets have been worn for many reasons throughout history. Bracelets have been worn to guard against evil spirits or the harsh sun, outwardly representing marital status, and in hopes of encouraging winter to turn to spring sooner rather than later. Bracelets have evolved to be a fashion accessory, and even these often hold special meaning for the wearer. 

By the time of the First Dynasty (2680 B.C.), Egyptians were wearing bracelets made of gold and silver and decorated with semiprecious stones. 
During the 20th century, consumers could find bracelets of almost any design imaginable. Bracelets also became more affordable as mass production increased the availability of fashion jewelry. By the 1920s, the ornate designs of the late 19th century gave way to the clean lines of the Art Deco period. Designers added Bakelite and plastics to jewelry in the 1930s and made plastic bangles a wardrobe staple for teen girls. Women and girls adored charm bracelets made of gold-plated brass or sterling silver in the 1950s, but by the 1970s, and until the turn of the century, women wanted variety in their fashion. They wore wide cuffs, slender bangles, beaded strands, and thin chains. Men started wearing bracelets again, usually choosing gold or sterling silver link chains.
