THERE’S nothing new about welded bracelets (Femail).
When I was a student in Seville in 1969, my newly engaged friend proudly showed off her esclava (which means female slave in Spanish), a gold bracelet inscribed with her fiancé’s name which had been welded to her wrist.
The idea was she could never remove it, short of having it cut off. Apparently, engagement rings were unknown.
