The word bracelet comes from the Greek word brachile meaning "of the arm." Bracelets were given in ancient Egypt as a symbol of rebirth and regeneration. Over the years, they've been worn as signs of friendship, as reminders of people or events and as symbols of healing and health. To a man who is contemplating a gift of jewelry for a woman, a bracelet is a great choice. A personalized bracelet from Heart on Your Wrist would be perfect for a first-time gift, or for a special occasion like an anniversary or the birth of a child.

Types of Bracelets

Bracelets come in a variety of forms and shapes. There are cuffs, which are bands that have an opening for slipping on and off the wrist. There are bangles, which are continuous circles and slip on over the hand. Finally, there are link bracelets, which are wonderful for building personalized charm collections. Cuffs are great for women who want to wear something classic and that will stay in one place on her writs. A bangle is great for someone who loves trendy jewelry and likes it to be seen (and sometimes heard!) when she wears it. A charm bracelet, or linked bracelet, if a nice option for adding multiple charms to and will be very easy to wear 24x7.


By some estimates, necklaces have been around since the Stone Age, when cave men and women would decorate themselves with mollusk shells. Simply defined, a necklace is an article of jewelry worn around the neck and ours are made of either gold or silver or leather for a more casual look. Traditionally, necklaces have been given as remembrances, or to mark a special occasion. For a man giving a gift to a woman, a personalized necklace with special names, words, places or dates is the perfect gift for a birthday, Mother's Day, graduation, anniversary or birth of a child.

Necklace Lengths

Necklaces come in a variety oflengths. They include: chokers (16"), which lay close to the neck; princess (18"), which is the most popular length and lies just below the throat; matinee (20"), which falls to the bust line; and opera (24"), which falls below the bust line.


Rings have been around since ancient times, used by the Egyptians, Persians and Babylonians as currency and as symbols of power. Although there is some evidence of the ring being used as a symbol of love in those days, it wasn't until around 860 AD that the ring started to become known as it is today: as a symbol of love and commitment.
