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 bracelet, as well as the Latin word brachium, meaning simply "arm". There are many types of bracelets, including charm, bangles, beaded, link, slap, and penannular.
