In ancient times, lapis lazuli stones were considered more precious than gold, as many people believed that they had mystical powers. While today gold may be a pricier treasure, the Lapis Lazuli Gemstone Bracelet by BeadBandit truly sets the gold standard for quality and fashionable style. The bracelet features hand selected genuine lapis lazuli gemstone beads that are 6 millimetres in diameter. Each one shows off its own unique mix of blue hues, which are complemented handsomely by the included hematite stone. Handmade by skilled artisans, the designer gemstone bracelet has a stretch cord base that allows it to expand to slip easily over the hand and rest comfortably against the wrist.
