Bracelets are articles of jewelry or ornamental bands, hoops, or chains that are worn around the wrist or arm. It can serve various purposes such as decoration. When worn as a decorative ornament, bracelets can have a supportive function to carry other items of accents, including charms and the likes.

Most people think that an armlet is the same as a bracelet. However, an armlet is an item that is worn on the upper arm, near the shoulder, like an arm ring. Meanwhile, the term “bracelet” is derived from the Greek word “branchile”, which means “of the arm,” via the Old French word bracel. Additionally, a bracelet is also a small brace or bracer – the arm-guards used by archers.
Wearing bracelets is an attested 7000-year-old practice just like other bodily adornments like necklaces and rings. Although early bracelets were made of grasses, slender tree limbs, and shells, bracelets forged of gold and alloys like copper and silver were quite common even in the earliest days of human civilization. In fact, among the earliest wearers of gold bracelets were in ancient Egypt, Mesopotamia, and China.
In ancient Egypt, bracelets were adorned with semiprecious stones and were worn mainly for ornamentation purposes; the deceased wearers were buried together with their gold bracelets.
As early as 2000 BC, apart from carving bracelets from jade, the ancient Chinese etched elaborate patterns of nature, animals, and mythical creatures into the bracelets while in India, jade or gold bangles were the common bracelet type.
Moreover, in Latin American countries, Azabache bracelets were bracelets with a black or red coral charm in the form of a fist that was worn to protect the wearer against Mal de Ojo or the evil eye.
Sell Your Bracelet
Bracelets come in many different forms and types. And it is important to know what type of bracelet you have when you want to sell your bracelet to a dealer. Listed below are a variety of popular chains used in bracelets.
Often having a masculine look, a curb chain has circular links. These links interlock and lie close together. This chain style comes in various widths, and its links are uniform in size and as opposed to other styles, are wider.
Originating in Italy, a figaro chain designed with several small round links interspersed with one long oval link. This style is frequently used for men’s jewelry worn alone or with a pendant although such a style makes an elegant jewelry accessory for women if links are thinner.
Similar to the curb style, a mariner chain looks like chains attached to an anchor on boats, hence the name. Moreover, this style’s design has a traditional, slightly rounded edge or is a flat link and is popular for ID bracelets, any jewelry with nautical themes, and unisex style jewelry.
Available in both delicate versions where they are a popular choice for pendant necklaces and heavier versions where the chain itself is the main attraction, rope chains are intertwined metal strands that resemble a genuine rope. This style varies by the amount of weave, which means that the tighter the braid, the more metal is used, so the price increases.
A snake chain is called so because of its snake-like texture; this style is made up of rings fitting together closely and making this style appear like a flexible tube. Moreover, such a style is usually narrow and delicate, so it is ideal for pendants.
A box chain has squared-off links, so it looks boxy. Also, it is popular for women’s jewelry because of its thinner version and is often paired up with pendants.
A franco chain is an increasingly popular style. It has a four-sided that creates a tightly-linked tubular structure resembling a snake. Depending on the width, this style can be worn alone if thick or if thin, can be paired with a pendant.
