A bracelet is a unique piece of jewelry because it is always visible to the wearer. A beautiful Catholic bracelet will always serve as a reminder to the person wearing it of the special occasion on which they received it and the special person who gave it to them. Here are a few types of bracelets and their functions:
- Charm Bracelet: Charm bracelets come in a variety of sizes for children and adults as well as in both sterling silver and gold. Charm bracelets are a wonderful way to establish a tradition of marking the sacraments and milestones in your child’s life. Add a charm to her charm bracelet to celebrate each major event, such as First Communion, Confirmation and graduation.
- Link Bracelet: Link bracelets are created from linking several pieces of metal or other materials such as beads or glass together to create one uniform bracelet. A link bracelet is a creative way to add various components to one design and get a unique looking piece of jewelry. Many of our hand-made and imported pieces of jewelry are fashioned as link bracelets.
- Stretch Bracelet: A stretch bracelet is strung together on a piece of elastic, making it durable and simple to wear. Stretch bracelets make wonderful First Communion gifts because children are able to take them on and off by themselves.
- Bangle: A bangle is a solid piece of medal that is slipped on over the hand with no opening or closure. Try wearing a bunch of faith based bangles together for a fun look and great conversation starter.
- Silicone Bracelet: Silicone bracelets or sport bracelets are very popular amongst school age children and athletes. Silicone bracelets are extremely pliable; one size fits all and they come in a multitude of bright colors.
- Rosary Bracelet: A rosary bracelet is more than just a piece of jewelry; a rosary bracelet is a wearable rosary to be prayed on. Each rosary bracelet consists of 10 Hail Mary beads, one Our Father bead and a miniature crucifix and medal, typically the Miraculous medal. A rosary bracelet should be prayed on like a finger rosary or chaplet, by continuously praying on the same beads over and over until all 5 decades have been said.
