If you are planning to go shopping for jewelry you will probably see black onyx bracelets and other onyx jewelry stand out from the line. Thanks to its bold and deep color, black onyx offers a striking contrast to the other brightly colored gemstones that you are probably used to. Aside from its unique appearance, did you know that this gemstone has a rich mythical history?

According to Greek mythology, Venus the love goddess was sleeping one day when her playful son Cupid decided to clip off her nails. The pieces of fingernails fell into the sand where they were magically turned into brilliant black stones. Onyx is also believed to have mythical powers in many parts around the world. Some believe that people who are suffering from an addiction of any sort should use black onyx to strengthen their self-control. Many cultures also use the stones to drive away bad energy and prevent hexes and other negative spirits. In some cultures it is also believed that black onyx can relieve childbirth pains and it is common for women to lend their black onyx jewelry to another woman who is about to give birth.

With such a fascinating background, it’s no wonder why a black onyx bracelet would be appropriate for you or your loved one.

These bracelets can come in various shapes and designs so it’s important to shop carefully to make sure that you are getting the ideal piece of jewelry. Before beginning to shop, it might be a good idea to determine your budget first. Fortunately, this kind of jewelry is relatively more affordable than other gemstones, making it easy for you to afford the very best quality. You might also want to take the time to decide what kind of bracelet you are looking for. Are you looking for something to wear everyday? Do you want something to wear with your elegant fancy dress? Knowing the occasion can definitely help you narrow down your choices.

If you are looking for a piece that will give any outfit a touch of vintage elegance then you might want to opt for a bracelet made with alternating onyx beads and red Italian corals. The contrasting beads are linked together with elaborate gold, making this black onyx bracelet a beautiful piece in every way.

If you have a little black cocktail or formal dress that you want to complement with simple elegance then a simple bracelet of oval onyx gemstones cut against a base of white gold will give your ensemble understated sophistication.

If your plan is to stand out from the crowd and look like a glamorous diva then a chunky wrist cuff should help you accomplish the look. A black onyx bracelet made from an assembly of four rows of black beads, tiny diamond studs and gold links will have you shining all night long. Because of the strong neutral color of black onyx jewelry, it also makes a perfect gift for any gender. If it’s your father’s birthday, brother’s graduation or your anniversary with your husband, you can also get black onyx jewelry for a special man in your life.
