Each bracelet is strung on durable elastic making it easy to stretch and wrap around your wrist without fear of snapping it.
This bracelet has 8mm soft forest agate beads for the aves and bright watermelon quartz for the paters. Each pater bead is surrounded by Antique bronze spacers.
*Please note that this variation does NOT come with a moveable charm, But with a fixed Miraculous Medal*
Please note that exposure to moisture, use of lotions or fragrances does speed up the oxidation process of the metal components. Due to the nature of gemstones, bead color will vary.
Each bead in this Christmas Exclusive bracelet was chosen as an intentional way to bring to the forefront of our minds the importance of the life of Christ that we reflect on during the Christmas season:
Green wood Jasper - The evergreen color of the Ave beads serves as a reminder of eternal life and hope. This is also why advent wreaths are made in a circle with pine branches.
Red Garnet - This is a reminder of the blood that was shed at the circumcision and how this was a foreshadowing of the blood that would be shed for us during the crucifixion.
Antique Bronze Charm & Accents - After Jesus was born Mary wrapped Him in swaddling clothes and laid Him in the manger. These antique colors are a nod to the small wooden manger the Christ Child was laid on the night of his birth. God fully divine came to earth fully man to save us from our sins.
Watermelon Quartz - When the Three Magi came to give homage to the Christ child, in addition to frankincense and Myrrh they presented him with gold. The gold nods to the reality of Christ's Kingship and eternal reign over Heaven and Earth.
