  2. Those fitted with pacemakers or any other      medical devices or implants
  3. Anyone working with high voltage machinery

Which is the right type of bangle or bracelet for you?

A copper magnetic bangle has the extra benefit of being especially good for those who suffer from arthritis and rheumatism but they are not recommended for people with sensitive skins and they should not be worn in water because this leads to discolouration. Copper is an essential mineral necessary for pain relief and to assist the body in the production of white blood cells to fight infection. Wearing a copper bangle will leave green/black residue on your wrist which is evidence that the copper is being successfully absorbed.

Stainless steel bracelets are hypo-allergenic and therefore suitable for those with sensitive skins and they can be worn in water without damage for anyone who wishes to wear them all the time.

Timeless Shell Jewellery

Shell BraceletHumans have been producing and adorning themselves with jewellery for a long time.  In fact, 100,000 year-old beads made from Nassarius Snail shells are thought to be the oldest known jewellery. These ancient shells can be found in The Natural History Museum. 

The Nassarius shell looks like a beautifully textured oval bead. Vestiges of red ochre and holes in unnatural places suggested that the fossilized shells were strung on string or other fibrous material to form a necklace.

Nice to see that even today, we have beautiful shell jewellery available in all shapes and colours and that maybe in a further 100,000  years time, Historians will be writing about them too.

Magnetised Hematite Jewellery is said to alleviate back pain, joint pain, chronic pain, muscle pain and arthritis.

Another reason for it’s name might be related to the high iron content found in hematite (almost 70%), which made hematite a popular healing stone for blood-related disorders.

Hematite has long been used as an aid to healing and has a wide variety of healing properties ascribed to it, including relief from leg cramps and alleviating fevers.
