A bracelet is an article of jewelry that is worn around the wrist. When it is worn around the ankle it is called an ankle bracelet or anklet. A boot bracelet is used to decorate boots. Bracelets can be manufactured from metal, leather, cloth, plastic or other materials and sometimes contain jewels, rocks, wood, and/or shells. Bracelets are also used for medical and identification purposes, such as allergy bracelets and hospital patient-identification tags. Although the term armlet may be technically similar, it is taken to mean an item that sits on the
upper shoulder: an arm ring. The origin of the term 'bracelet' is from the Greek 'brachile' meaning 'of the arm', via the Old French 'barcel'. A bracelet is also a small brace or bracer (an arm-guard used by archers). Bracelets that are in solid form, usually from metal, wood, or plastic, are referred to as bangles or bangle bracelets.
