It is said that around 7,000 years ago, the wearing of bracelet style jewelry became common in the name of ritual and adornment. Archaeologists, in their studies, have found strong evidence that people donned bracelets proudly in ancient Mesopotamia, Egypt and China. Bracelets have been worn to guard against evil spirits or the harsh sun, outwardly represent marital status, and in hopes of encouraging winter to turn to spring sooner rather than later. Over centuries and cultures, bracelets have evolved to be a fashion accessory, and even these often hold special meaning for the wearer. The gift of a bracelet is a sincere one from the giver to the recipient as a way to celebrate a milestone, a memory or just to bring joy.
