Although Shamballa bracelets have only been around for a little over a decade, their popularity within the fashion world has grown, proving these bracelets to be one of the hottest fashion accessories on the streets. Everyone, from women to men and even children can be seen sporting this fun and fashionable accessory. These bracelets usually consist of disco ball-like beads and/or a charm, as well as a macramé-like band holding it all together. Shamballa bracelets can be worn to both casual and formal occasions!
Shamballa bracelets first became mainstream in 2001 in Copenhagen, Denmark by Mikkel and Mads Kornerup. They strung together gold beads with diamond studs using an intricate knotted design. However, this is not where the tradition of these special bracelets started. The inspiration for these bracelets actually comes from Ancient Buddhism. A story from hundreds of years ago talks about the Kings of Shamballa and their job to maintain the principles of the Kalachakra Tantra, a prophesy stating that when people turn to war and greed all will be lost. Therefore, these bracelets were a constant reminder to embrace happiness, peace, and tranquility.
The rise of Shamballa bracelets can be attributed to celebrities wearing this bracelet in all different colors! Each color has its own meaning. For example, black Shamballa bracelets are associated with strength and power. Blue bracelets are connected to affection, inspiration, and creativity, while red Shamballa bracelets are associated with passion and vitality. Make sure to choose your color wisely!
