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.
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.
