Bracelets & Bangles

Bracelets & Bangles

From beautiful tennis bracelets to Victorian bangles, we have a wide variety of shapes and styles to suit. The term bracelet originates from the Greek ‘brachile’, literally meaning ‘of the arm’. Bracelets have a long history in cultural tradition and were initially composed of non-precious materials such as stone and wood to serve spiritual and religious purposes. In recent times, bracelets have become a very popular ornamental accessory, with charm bracelets having a particular resurgence in appeal.

Bangles have a strong cultural history in South Asia, in particular relation to the sacrament of marriage and were therefore often made of materials such as gold, copper, bronze and chalcedony. As a result the English word ‘bangle’ is derived from the Hindi ‘bangri’ meaning a glass bracelet and were not only used as decorative pieces but also as symbols of wealth and social status. Bangles have had a continuous popularity, in large part due to their versatility.
