HISTORY OF THE FRIENDSHIP BRACELET

The history suggests that a friendship bracelet is given as a sign of friendship. It is intended to be tied on the wrist of a friend and worn continually as a symbol of lasting friendship. You can also select colors for a friendship bracelet that reflect the character traits of the intended recipient.

Pink ~ Kind
Red ~ Honest
Orange ~ Energetic
Yellow ~ Cheerful
Green ~ Responsible
Blue ~ Loyal
Black ~ Strong


Others also say that while the recipient is having the bracelet tied on their wrist by their friend to make a wish. Traditionally, the bracelet is meant to be kept on the wrist until it's worn and disintegrates naturally. At that time the wish is supposed to come true. 
Today friendship bracelets seem to be appearing on the wrists of everyone from children to adults.
