The bracelet, which Armenian jewelers had created 300 years ago in Tokat Province of Turkey, is still the most popular and respected gold ornament in Turkey. Yaşar Gençay, President of the Jewelers’ Association of Tokat, noted that this bracelet quickly gained great reputation and it was named the Tokat Bracelet, according to Sözcü newspaper of Turkey.
Gençay stressed, however, that even though the Tokat Bracelet is one of the most popular and respected pieces of jewelry in Turkey, people in the country are now facing financial difficulties because of the devaluation of the Turkish lira, due to the US presidential election.
But he expressed the hope that everything will return to normal in the coming days and the Tokat Bracelet will be sold as before.
