Your wedding is the perfect time to start a jewelry collection that you’ll build upon all through your marriage.
While some women collect beads for a charm bracelet, with each bead telling a different story, think about collecting Dune Jewelry Sandbead bracelets. Look at how amazing the collection looks in the photo above. Each of those bracelets features a sandbead, or two or three, containing sand from a favorite beach, a place of great memories and importance. It could be the beach where you got engaged, or married, or honeymooned, or the beach at your lakehouse, beach house, or favorite family vacation spot. From the big anniversary trip you took together. From the country of your origin.
Your Dune Jewelry Sandbead Bracelet collection is you.
Now’s the time to start…visit Dune Jewelry to see if they have your beach’s sand in their sandbank already, and you can also send them the sand you’d like for your custom piece.
Amethyst is a crystalline quartz in shades of purple, lilac or deep mauve, and according to the American Gem Trade Association, great thinkers in history (like Leonardo DaVinci) believed that amethyst could dissipate evil thoughts and boost intelligence.
Funnily enough, amethyst symbolism also includes “guarding against drunkenness,” since the word ‘amethyst’ comes from a Greek term meaning “without drunkenness.” Not that you can wear an amethyst necklace or bracelet and drink all throughout your reception without getting buzzed – or completely wasted – but it’s an amusing symbolism attributed to this stone.
Here are some other symbolic meanings for this purple gem:
- Guard against fearful feelings
- Guard against guilty feelings
- Guard against self-deception
- Spiritual wisdom
- Focused energy
- Royal (purple is traditionally the color of royalty!)
