You have to love when somebody takes an old idea, and puts a new, tricky spin on it! Apple with the iPod, Sunball with solar panels … and Nomination with the charm bracelet! They combine all of the best features of a charm bracelet – personalizability, individual length, affordability – with the sleekness and unisex design of an ordinary bangle-style bracelet. They have a huge range, so if you’re looking for a stylish, custom made gift for a special guy or girl this May, start wading through the range with us!
Your May-born man or mistress will be a Taurean if they are born on or before the 20th of May – strong, dependable, artistically and musically talented. Those born after the 20th are Geminis – changeable as the wind, social butterflies, lively and whimsical souls. The liveliness and changeability of the Gemini is represented well by the gold dolphin dangle at the beginning of the article. Dolphins are one of the world’s most social and intelligent creatures – you might say they are all born under the sign of Gemini! The dangle style charm is also great for Gemini’s because of the feeling of activity and liveliness that a chiming dangle section creates, rather than having a solid bracelet.
Taureans, on the other hand, whether male or female, will appreciate the unstated sentiments of the anchor charm at right! Every Taurean is looking for stability and security, and they offer these qualities themselves, so the anchor charm is utterly suitable. And besides, it has a touch of artistic unexpectedness about it, which will also appeal to creative Taureans.
There are zodiac sign charms in the gold dangle section also, where you’ll find the dolphin and anchor, but for Gemini’s with their sparkling wit and whimsical personality, those in the cubic zirconia section are much more suitable. The zodiac sign links all have clear cubic zirconias included, so they match well with many other styles of bracelet, whether enamel or gold dominates.
Stick around in the cubic zirconia section, but make your way up to the Love area for Taurean guys and girls. Despite the fact they have a bull as their zodiac sign’s symbol, they are actually one of the most lovey-dovey starsigns you’ll come across! Taureans are real homebodies, and love the security of being in a relationship. There are love sections in most of the nomination link categories, and there are various colors of this Cupid-struck heart in the cubic zirconia section. We chose dark blue because sapphires are one of Taurus’s signature stones.
You’ll also find some sweet and unabashedly sappy love links in the enamel section – but if you have a slightly more subtle Taurean, try the Love area under the Gold category. That is where the Cupid link at right hails from, with his delicate etching and poised arrow! These make lovely gifts even if they aren’t for romantic partners – and you’ll see as you explore the section that gold and gemstone links are just as affordable as enamel ones.
One of the few pieces of jewelry to include emeralds, the birthstone for all of May, can be found as a nomination link. You’ll need to get in early if you want to order these for May birthdays, because just about everybody has discovered this very cost effective way to give a rare May birthstone as a gift! You can find the emerald link under Natural Semiprecious stones under the Gemstone category. If you’ve missed out, however, just look a little to your left for Taureans – there is a sapphire link that would be equally suitable (pictured at right). Just as with the emerald link, this is one of the cheapest ways to get genuine birthstones in jewelry for you loved ones.
The red agate link pictured at right is perfect for Geminis – agate is one of their birthstones and signature stones for their zodiac sign. Agate is available under the ‘natural hard gemstones’ section, which gives you the option of heart shaped gems as well as round and oval, as these gems can be cut more reliably. There is a green agate option as well as a red one.
Gemini’s mercurial nature and whimsy is represented in one of their signature animals, the sparrow … and the nomination range is large enough that there is actually a link designed as a sparrow! Not just any old small, cute bird, this link is actually made specifically to represent sparrows. It includes both gold and enamel in a colorful, cheerful blend of styles.
Strangely enough though, there are few pieces of jewelry, even among nomination links, that represent cows! Poor old Taureans miss out every time – although you can understand why this is. Men would be giving their cow-themed gifts in especially soft boxes, expecting to be hit in the eye with them! And then possibly in the back of the head also, as they are running out the door … ‘Think I’m a cow, do you?!’. Well, we feel that the solid, dependable elephant is a suitable replacement for a solid, dependable cow, and much less likely to get you injured . Pink, lemon and light blue are signature Taurean colors, and the elephant link is available in all of these.
The keyword for Gemini is ‘I think’ … and if you know any Geminis, you’ll agree that really should be expanded to include ‘I say what I think’! Geminis will love to spell out their thoughts for the world to see, which makes the letter section of the nomination range perfect for them. The gold letter ‘G’ for Gemini is shown, but you can choose whatever letters you like. They are available in enamel also, and the style of lettering is that same as the gold style. Gemini’s will love a bit of whimsy and mix and match!
They can also express themselves through the writings section of the Enamel category. This is where the Aloha link pictured at right comes from, and there is a veritable army of other links to go with it, including some acronyms even I don’t know what they mean! WWJD? EMS? FREEDOM? Oh, right …. . There’s plenty of choices, anyway, even for Taureans. We’d pick the artistically colorful, and suitably sentimented ‘Peace’ link shown at right for them.
We hope you’re starting to get a feel for how big the range of nomination links is – and we haven’t even reminded you of the best feature yet, that FREE worldwide shipping is available on all Nomination links!
