Silver Semainier Bracelet
This stunning Silver Semainier Bracelet is the latest addition to the Scheherazade range.
I have long been fascinated by the ‘orientalism’ of the 19th century, and the ‘visions of the East by artists of the West’ as Christie’s defines it.
The Scheherazade capsule collection is my take on it, with pieces of jewellery that are relevant to today’s lifestyles but still convey the charm of the Orient wih its fascinating exoticism, opulence and rituals steeped in time.
Available in solid precious metals, the range focuses on the traditional ‘Semainier’ design and the symbolic number ‘7’.
‘Semainier’ is the French word for ‘week’, and all the pieces are made of 7 individual rings tied together with a permanent ribbon link like the 7 days of the week.
Whether you like ancient traditions, look for a piece of jewellery with strong symbolism or simply love beautiful adornments that are slightly unusual, then this set of stacking bangles is for you!
Did you know that the number ‘7’ is considered the luckiest number in most religions and cultures? It is also the spiriual symbol of inner life.
Consider it your new talisman. We can certainly all do with one this year!
It will also make the most beautiful gift to the wonderful woman in your life.
I have created an X-Small size especially for children! A gift that is fun, meaningful and precious.
How to wear it
Oozing style and charm, this semainier bracelet will get you noticed and admired.
Although it looks wide, it is actually incredibly comfortable to wear as it composes of 7 individual bangles rather than 1 extra large solid one. Which means that you can easily slip it on.
As you wear it each arm movement causes all the bangles to make a gracious sound like wind chimes, which is thought to be good luck in parts of Asia and are used in Feng Shui! That’s another great benefit to this semainier bracelet for you.
The ribbon link add a little extra detail. Not only does it keep the 7 rings together so no risk of loosing one! but it spins around the stacked bangles.
Wear it on its own or pair it with other pieces from the same Scheherazade range?
Materials & their benefits
Polished solid sterling silver 925.
Fully hallmarked by the London Assay Office.
Silver provides a steadying influence. It performs a balancing act by drawing negativity from the body while transferring the positive energies of other minerals.
approx 13mm high
We all like our bracelets to fit slightly differently. Some like a tighter fit around the wrist than others.
I have therefore designed 4 sizes, including 1 for children, so that you can choose which one suits you best.
A nice little tip if you have a small wrist but a proportionately wider hand, is to slip you hand in a thin plastic bag and then put the bracelet on. That way you can choose the size of bangles that you really like rather than a bigger one!
As with any piece of jewellery, when you don’t wear it, keep it in a box or pouch, ideally separate from your other jewellery to avoid scratches.
Safe to clean at home yourself – simply wash with lukewarm water and mild soap. Leave to soak a couple of minutes. Do not scrub or rub. The dirt will fall off at the bottom of the container. Rinse under clear lukewarn water. Pat dry with a soft clean cloth and leave to dry completely before wearing again, or storing.
Do not scrub or rub as this will affect the surface.
Avoid putting makeup and other beauty products after putting your jewellery on, as residues will build up in the little recesses, making it more difficult to clean.
