Evolution of Bracelets

    Bracelets have played an important role in highlighting the beauty of hands and wrists for a long time now. The exact origin of this accessory is often a topic of debate. The earliest samples can be considered those worn by Ancient Egyptians dating somewhere around 5000 BCE. They crafted their bracelets from materials like bone, stone and wood to serve various religious and spiritual interests.

    The US saw an increase in bracelets around the 20th century due to the rise of mass production, increasing their affordability. From the clean lines of the Art Deco era, these lovely accessories changed to more of bakelite and plastics in the 30s. In the 50s charm bracelets made of gold-plated brass or sterling silver became the trend for women. By the 70s and until the turn of the century, wide cuffs, slender bangles, beaded strands, and thin chains were in fashion.

    Today bracelets are made of all kinds of materials like metal, resin, beads, and fabric threads in all sorts of stylish or funky designs.
