Many people may not realize the rich history and interesting symbolism of the bracelet. The Greek word brachile meant "of the arm" and has been modified over time to represent the word we know as we know it as bracelet, as well as the Latin word brachium, meaning "arm". There are many types of bracelets and throughout history have held significance in both secular and religious circles. Today, braclets have evolved into a fashion accessory and even hold a special meaning to the wearer. They may remind you of a special person in your life, a certian time in your life, a special occasion, and experience or a vacation. A bracelet is an excellent accessory to enhance any outfit -- a wardrobe essential.
