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.
Cut of the stone
Firstly we talked about the cut of the stone. Now finding a good quality bright green tourmaline with this cut is not impossible to find but can be tricky so we decided that custom cutting was the way forward. We custom cut the green tourmaline from a larger cushion stone to create the look. We combined the chequer board facetted cut on top but with a more square proportioned shape rather than oval.
The lapidaries squared up the proportions and then facetted the top of the stone. This creating a square cushion shape with a facetted top! Donna felt a straight sided square stone would be a little harsh so decided that she would like to have the stone with softened corners. The initial stone was 1.72cts and ended up at 1.05ct. After being cut gemstone it is difficult. We searched for a green tourmaline of the right colour that could be cut to shape. The twist ring is simple in style holds the tourmaline for a modern design.

In recent years platinum has become the choice for diamond jewellery as the metal is very hard and durable complimenting the gemstone properties. Graceful and elegant it looks spectacular no matter what else you are wearing.
