Bracelet

Additional Links

Bracelet. See Armlet. Bracelets of fine, twisted, Venetian gold are still common in Egypt. In Genesis 38:18; Genesis 38:25, 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 of Solomon 5:14. Layard says of the Assyrian kings, "The arms were encircled by armlets, and the wrists by bracelets."
