Bracelet

Armlet which encircled the arm, as BRACELETS the wrist. (See ARMLET.) In Genesis 38:18; Genesis 38:25, instead of "bracelets" translate (pathiyb) "the ribband" or guard by which Judah's signet was suspended to his neck. In Isaiah 3:19 wreathed chainwork bracelets are meant, as the root of sheerah implies. Bracelets of fine twisted gold are still common in Egypt. Men wore them as well as women. The Assyrian kings had "in the center of theirs stars and rosettes, probably inlaid with precious stones" (Layard). In Exodus 35:22, for "bracelets" (chach) translate clasp or ring (literally, "a hook".) The "bracelet on Saul's arm," i.e. armlet, was one of the insignia of royalty found after his death (2 Samuel 1:10).
