Although more associated with 20th Century AD Christian devotions, a ''Salvation Bracelet'' is a form of wristlet worn on either arm. Made from a string or leather twine, a series of specific colored beads or stones are threaded onto the body of the bracelet. Examples can be traced to the 1st Century AD and Ancient Rome as an early form of ''Christian Identification'' (among persecuted Christians). The color scheme seen most on stones or beads are: BLACK for Sin, RED for Blood, BLUE for Baptism, WHITE for Cleansing, GREEN for Growth and finally YELLOW for Heaven. Each color was a ''trial'' each Christian would encounter (especially during The Roman Persecutions).
