June pearl bracelet

The delicate pearls on this bracelet will make a darling statement!

Pearls are a symbol of purity, innocence, and faith. They are said to enhance personal integrity and help clear the mind.

Wearing a bracelet, especially one made with delicate pearls, can be distracting if you’re working on a computer keyboard all day. Keep your pearls protected by adding oval links on each side of the clasp — the underside of the bracelet lays flat while the fun shows on top!
