The charm bracelet has a long history that starts in the ancient times when warriors use to where them in order to be protected from evil and to attract positive energy. Another word for the charm bracelets is amulet.
In the past these bracelets were made out of animal bones, little pebbles and shells. Evidence that these amulets have been around us for many, many years was found in Africa, Germany and ancient Egypt. Each charm bracelet used to have distinctive marks of the area where the holder lived. So for example, people that lived in Africa wore shells, those that lived in Germany used to adorn their bracelets with carved mammoth tasks. Also, there was a time in the Roman Empire when the Christians used to have small fish charms in order to be recognized by other Christians.
Queen Victoria was the person who brought the charm bracelet fashion in Europe. From this point forward Europeans, and not only them, began to create and to wear charm bracelets.
