Article illustrates how bracelets have come a long way and gives a sneak peak in to the latest trends of current styles worn and the causes their wearers represent.

The humble bracelet that we wear as an accessory, has a surprisingly bit of rich history behind it. A bracelet is a piece of jewelry worn around the wrist. It is generally made from leather, cloth, metal, plastic or other materials. Studded with jewels, rocks and other artifacts make them traditional jewelry attire.


The ornament seems to be of Greek origin, with the term bracelet derived out of the Greek term ‘brachile’ meaning of the arm.  There also seems to be a lot of cultural significance especially Egyptian with certain Egyptian bracelets being as old as 5000 BC being found in archeological sites. For the Egyptians the bracelet represented a symbol to serve religious and cultural interests.

Today’s bracelets have found good innovation and have come a long way from their earlier Egyptian days. The current trend seems to be of wearing them mixed with different colors and styling. One famous style is two fabric strings being mixed and are attached with a final metal.
