          Very nice little bracelet - more substantial than I thought, i.e. has weight to it. Just wished the crystals in it were a bit larger. Comfortable to wear everyday.

              I found this bracelet on sale on-line. The earrings first caught my eye because of the price and style. I would have gotten all three bracelets but, only one style was left. Apparently it was a popular item.

                  I purchased this item as a gift and returned it. It is a pretty bracelet in pearl but very small and thin. The photograph makes it look more substantial than it is. I would recommend buying all three to make this look better. I just didn't feel I could present this as a gift because it looked so insubstantial.

                  The Sinú were an indigenous tribe in Colombia whose civilization flourished from about 200 B.C. to A.D. 1600. They constructed sophisticated waterworks for irrigation, and were master goldsmiths and palm weavers. These brown-and-ivory and black-and-ivory bracelets, woven from caña flecha palm fibers and acrylic thread by members of today’s Sinú community, incorporate patterns that have been part of their culture for thousands of years. Feature nickel-free alloy accents.

                  This handsome handcrafted bracelet combines traditional Eastern medicine with one of the most significant mantras in Buddhism for an accent that is as meaningful as it is beautiful. Saying, or even reading, the words Om mani padme hum is believed to invoke the Buddha of Compassion, called Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit or Chenrezig in Tibetan. Some traditions within Eastern medicine use copper and brass for their purported power to alleviate arthritis and increase circulation. These two beliefs intertwine in a hand-hammered copper, brass, and white metal cuff. The Tibetan script for Om mani padme hum is overlaid on the face of the bracelet.

                  The nighttime bazaar in the Thai city of Chiang Mai is a must-go destination for anyone who wants to experience the creative energy of this northern city.

Three lookalike sisters—a trio regularly mistaken for triplets—keep a studio nearby, and that is where they dreamed up this stylish beaded necklace that can also worn as a multi-strand bracelet. Choose turquoise or translucent rose quartz beads.

                  Early in the 20th century, people discovered how to induce the transformation of a grain of sand into an organic gem, the pearl. Since that time, the natural irregularities of baroque cultured pearls have been treasured by women all over the world. These cultured freshwater pearls are available in shades of honeysuckle, goldenrod, lavender, and rose and are strung on generous elastic. The colors of these bracelets coordinate beautifully together or can be worn singly. Read more about pearls in the June 1997 National Geographic.
