(bracelet) Hebrew; a "fetter", from a root, "a step" (Isaiah 3:18-20). (See ANKLET.) A general ornament in the E. A badge of kings (2 Samuel 1:10). The signet was sometimes a jewel on the armlet; which explains, "Set me as a seal upon thine arm" (Song of Solomon 8:6). Their weight (compare Genesis 24:22), and their tightness on the arm (so that in putting them on blood is often drawn) make their female wearers pay dearly for their love of admiration.
