A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT THE ORIGIN OF THE BRACELETS
The age of the bracelet is similar to that of the ring, if not higher, since specimens have been found in Ancient Egyptian mummies and in European prehistoric burials from the Bronze Age, and it is often seen represented in reliefs of characters from the Old Empire. Assyrian. The oldest date back to the Neolithic, being these in the form of pieces of perforated shells.
It is known of the existence of bracelets and bangles from all ancient civilizations beginning with the prehistoric Bronze Age, which usually have a simple spiral or circular shape. They are followed by the Egyptians, cylindrical in shape and in two pieces, embellished with inlaid stones and typical emblems of the style. The Phoenicians, are made in the form of open rings and ended in animal heads. The Greeks and Romans have circular or spiral shapes, imitating a snake and are often adorned with stones and medals. From the Byzantine Empire it is clear, from the mosaics and miniatures of its origin, that the bracelet was also used by the upper classes. However, it must not have been very common, and even less so in the West (with the exception of the Northern European regions), judging by the very few remains of such accessories that the Middle Ages have left us. In the 15th century, knights reestablished their use as currency in games of arms and in the Modern Age, ladies as a luxury item.
Over time, bracelets have evolved and have been manufactured in different ways and with different elements.

The Greeks, more than a production of accessories and bracelets, dedicated themselves more to sculpture, for this reason the ornaments that they carried in their hands and body in general, were sculpted miniatures that represented religious and mythological figures or heroic scenes.
