Gel bracelets or jelly bracelets or Awareness bracelets
Gel bracelets or jelly bracelets are an inexpensive type of wristband similar to a large diameter O-ring. Awareness bracelets gained in popularity in the 2004 when the Lance Armstrong Foundation introduced its trademark yellow silicone Livestrong wristband to raise support for cancer research. They come in a variety of colors, and dozens can be worn on each arm.
They have been popular in waves throughout the Western world and elsewhere since the 1980s. By early 2005, silicone wristbands became popular with many charities, such as Make Poverty History and the BBC's Beat Bullying campaign. One style of these wristbands, known as awareness bracelets, carry embossed messages demonstrating the wearer's support of a cause or charitable organization. In general, the color of the band describes its cause, and the colors are often the same as the colors of awareness ribbons.
Find gemstone Jewellery
An easy way to get started looking at gemstone jewellery is to explore jewelry web stores that offer beautiful examples. Jewellery stores, both online and brick and mortar, will stock a good selection of fine diamond jewellery for your perusal. A local jeweller can also answer any questions you might have about the piece or gemstone.
In the comfort of your home or office you can take in all of the lovely styles, and begin to sort through the pieces and styles you prefer. When you have determined what those are, you might take the next step of visiting a local jeweller to see the pieces up close and examine them for you. Designer jewellery can cover the gamut of rings, engagement and wedding rings, watches, necklaces and pendants, bracelets and anklets, cuff links, tiaras and other unusual pieces.
A gemstone is a stone that is beautiful
A gemstone is a stone that is beautiful, rare, and durable resistant to abrasion. Today, finer gemstone specimens are available to the average person than at any time in history.
Nowadays such a distinction is no longer made by the trade. Rare or unusual gemstones, generally meant to include those gemstones which occur so infrequently in gem quality that they are scarcely known except to connoisseurs, include andalusite, cassiterite and bixbite. Some minerals can be very beautiful, but they may be too soft and will scratch easily (such as the mineral fluorite). Fluorite is extremely colorful and pretty but has a hardness of only 4 on the hardness scale and has four perfect cleavage directions, which makes it only an oddity as a cut gem.
