Bracelet


Bracelet. [See Armlet.] Bracelets of fine twisted Venetian gold are still common in Egypt. In Gen. 38:18, 25 the word rendered “bracelet” means probably a string by which a seal-ring was suspended. Men as well as women wore bracelets, as we see from Song. 5:14. Layard says of the Assyrian kings, “The arms were encircled by armlets, and the wrists by bracelets.”
