Nothing decorates and accessorizes an outfit more than jewelry. Jewelry consists of small ornamental items worn for personal adornment, such as rings, necklaces, earrings, pins and bracelets. Of the various jewelry on the market, bracelets can add a gorgeous touch to your overall look, ranging from large and bulky to small and dainty.
Perhaps bracelets that not only add immense appeal to the wearer, but emit a vibration of trendy and fun, are upper arm bracelets or cuffs. Bracelets worn between the elbow and the shoulder decorate the upper arm in a stylish, fashionable way, and work well for both evening wear occasions, or casual outings throughout the day.
Bracelet Fun Fact: A bracelet is an article of jewelry generally worn around the wrist, but can fit anywhere on the arm. Bracelets can be manufactured from metal, leather, cloth, plastic or other materials and sometimes contain jewels, rocks, wood, shells, crystals, metal or plastic hoops, pearls and many more materials.
Another term for an upper arm bracelet is an armlet or an arm ring. The origin of the term ‘bracelet’ is from the Greek ‘brachile’, meaning ‘of the arm’, via the Old French ‘bracel.’
Bracelet Fun Fact: The history of Egyptian bracelets is as old as 5000 BCE, starting with materials like bones, stones and woods to serve religious and spiritual interests. From the National Geographic Society, the Scarab Bracelet is one of the most recognized symbols of ancient Egypt. The scarab represented birth and regeneration. Carved scarabs were won as jewelry and wrapped into linen bandages of mummies. A popular myth told of the scarab god, Khepri, is one pushing the sun across the sky.
