Striking Cinnabar bracelet brings much needed ZEN to my life!

Of course, I’d heard of cinnabar. But, much as I hate to admit it, I’d never actually seen a piece of the highly desirable, traditional Chinese jewelry until I found the fabulous zen jewelz company.

Cinnabar gets its name from the red mineral cinnabar (mercury sulfide) that was once used to give the distinctive red color to the lacquer used in the jewelry making process. Today, cinnabar jewelry is created using a dyed red resin, and the result is simply stunning.

My cinnabar bracelet from zen jewelz is absolutely gorgeous. A deep crimson red, the exquisitely carved beads are housed on a classic stretch bracelet. Nestled amongst the intricate beads is a “karma tag.” Mine says “balance,” but other options include “harmony,” “acceptance” and more. Retail $125

According to the firm, various gemstones are not simply used for adornment, but actually provide specific types of support — such as amethyst for intuition and turquoise for health. The zen jewelz site even has a useful gem index that fully explains the helpful principles of each gem.

My cinnabar bracelet “attracts abundance, increases assertiveness in one’s endeavors without inciting aggression, connects to the acceptance of everything being perfect exactly as it is and releases energy blockages and aligns the energy centers!”

In addition to a serious selection of classic stretch bracelets, the zen jewelz line also offers so much more. Using gems from aquamarine, to carnelian, to black spinel, the line is simply filled with spectacular necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. You are sure to find just the right look. Or, you can even make your own, with custom hoopz and sliders earrings!

Although zen jewelz is already a favorite among Hollywood A-listers, the line has recently gained a boost with the general public The firm’s designs made headlines on the Real Housewives of New Jersey reality show last season when show personality Jacqueline became pregnant after wearing a zen jewelz fertility bracelet.
