These beaded bracelets balance style and sentimentality

The perfect gift for a loved one or yourself.

In the early to mid-2010s every second woman’s arm was adorned with beaded and charmed bracelets. And not just one either—we layered and stacked different styles and rushed to fill out our charms, feeling a glowing sense of pride once we’d reached ‘full status’ ready to move on to a fresh bracelet.

Our love for the treasured pieces, hand-picked and representing life’s big moments, has never truly waned. With the phenomenon that is Taylor Swift bringing beaded bracelets (albeit a slightly different iteration) back to the forefront of fashion, our love for the style has been reinvigorated.

Offering both sentimentality and style, the beaded bracelet is the perfect gift for a loved one or for treating yourself.

What do bead bracelets symbolise?

Historically, beaded bracelets were worn as a form of protection with specific gemstones warding off various evil spirits and bad energy.

Now, beaded bracelets can still hold the same significance to some but for others they serve purely as an aesthetic addition to one’s outfit. While some beaded bracelets symbolise friendship (a la Taylor Swift) others hold charms specific to life events, milestones and memories.
