History of friendship bracelets
Friendship bracelets are special bracelets. As a symbol of friendship these bracelets are given from one friend to another. The knot-craft and hand weaving used to create traditional patterns stems from Native American handcrafts, particularly from Central American tradition. According to indigenous tradition, the recipient of a friendship bracelet must wear it until the cords wear out and fall off naturally.
The idea is that the friend paid for it with the hard work and love that made it and the recipient repays the friend by honoring the work. Removing the bracelet before it naturally falls off is a sign that the friendship has gone sour. Another variation of this tradition is that the recipient of a bracelet is entitled to a wish. After the bracelet wears out and falls off naturally, the wish will come true.

A gemstone or gem also called a precious or semi-precious stone is a piece of attractive mineral, when cut and polished it is used to make jewellery or other adornments. Although some gemstone varieties have been treasured since before history began and others were only discovered recently.
Gemstone is durable enough to be enjoyed for generations. However certain rocks, such as lapis-lazuli and organic materials are not minerals, but are still used for jewelry, and are therefore often considered to be gemstones as well. Most gemstones are hard, but some soft minerals are used in jewelry because of their luster or other physical properties that have aesthetic value. Rarity is another characteristic that lends value to a gemstone.
