History

.

   
   Originally these bracelets were brought into the United States by Special Forces
   personnel and big game hunters.    They used to be worn by the Montagnards of
   Vietnam, and were given as gifts to some of the Special Forces folks that worked
   with them as a sign of great respect and trust.

   According to legend, the wearer of an elephant hair bracelet would be protected
   from illness, taken out of harms way, and attain great fortune.   The knots
   represent fertility & ancestors (earth) and forces & spirits (nature).   In following
   with tradition, those white hunters who actually hunted and killed an elephant
   wear the bracelet on the right arm.   Elephant hair bracelets presented to friends
   as tokens of good luck are worn on the left arm.

   There is another ancient legend that says the hair of the elephant gives man
   the power of the animal. While the most common belief is that the hair can be used
   to ward off evil spirits.

   For thousands of years Mythology has believed that the connection between
   heaven and earth is the elephant.   It is believed that by wearing an elephant hair
   bracelet you will be prosperous and healthy and not become sick or poor.

   It is thought to create a balance and blend between earth and nature, thus
   enabling the bearer to be in sync with the forces of the universe.   It is also thought
   that your ancestors will protect you from harm and bad happenings by helping
   you with the harmony of these forces.

   Each of our bracelets has been carefully crafted by hand, using the highest
   quality sterling silver .925.   Each has 7 strands and 2 adjustable knots, (In Indo
   China the Montanyard varieties were very simple with just two slip knots.) adding
   a new, attractive and unique piece of jewelry to your collection.   It is Ideal for the
   field and at home in more formal surroundings.   Our bracelet is fully adjustable to
   fit a woman (opens to approx. 3 ) and comes wonderfully gift boxed making
   it the perfect gift for her on any occasion.
