Bangle bracelets are one of the simplest and effective ways of adding a little style to your overall look. I am a firm believer in the idea of taking the time to build up a plentiful accessory treasure chest. A good accessory can add miles to an outfit with very little effort. Adding a few bangles to your jewelry collection is an easy place to start.
Bangle bracelets can be traced back in history to 2600 BC in the Mohenjo-Daro settlements. A statue of a young girl was discovered in an archeological excavation. The statue, entitled “Dancing Girl” is a nude figure who is wearing an armful of bangle bracelets. Based on this evidence, bangle bracelets are noted as the first accessory of the human culture.
The bangle can be seen across Indian, Mayan, and Roman cultures throughout history and has come in almost every material imaginable, including: stone, glass, terracotta, shells, plastic, resin, and various metals.
With such a long standing history that the bangle has had, it is safe to say that this accessory isn’t going anywhere. Whether it’s day or night, or if you are wearing one or several; your arms are guaranteed to reach their glam potential when they are adorned with these little circular wonders.
Bangle on! 🙂
