I’ve had my eye on a Lokai bracelet for a while now and I was extremely lucky to finally get a hold of one when I received one as a Christmas gift last year.
The design of the Live Lokai bracelet itself is very simple and if you haven’t heard of them before you’re probably a little bit confused as to what the big fuss I’m making is all about. However it is more the meaning than the appearance that attracts people to the Lokai jewellery. The bracelets consist of one white bead which holds a droplet of water from Mt Everest (the highest point of the world), one black bead holding mud from the Dead Sea (the lowest point of the world) and a string of clear beads between the two. The idea behind the simple design is that there are times in our lives when you are ‘at the top of the world’ (white bead) and times when you hit a low point in life (black bead) and then there are just the other days that link the more significant days all together, which is where the clear beads come in as they are said to symbolise the circular journey that everyone embarks on in life.
The bracelets come in three different sizes and mine is small; it is quite a snug fit but that is exactly how I like my bracelets to be so it is an absolute perfect fit in my eyes! I also like how unique the jewellery is, as each of the beads are made of silicon and make up just one connected piece rather than being separate beads that are joined via a chain. And it isn’t just me who has been taken in by the Live Lokai story either, in fact just a quick search of #livelokai on Instagram brings up hundreds of photos that people have taken with their bracelets and I personally think that with such a lovely story behind the creation of the bracelets, it is easy to see why people are so taken in by them. Not to forget that there is also the extra added bonus that with each purchase made 10% of the net profits are donated back to the community through charitable alliances!
It is safe to say I am sold when it comes to these bracelets, I love the meaning behind them and I don’t think I have gone through a day since Christmas where my new adored piece of jewellery hasn’t been on my wrist at some point.
