I wore My Green Bracelet yesterday. I snatched it off of my jewelry table just as I was running out of the front door to catch a flight and stacked it with some of my other bracelets. Not just because I was trying to be fashionable and get that "pop of color" to go with the swirlies in my skirt and not just because I think it's cool that there is a rough diamond floating around in the charm, but because I love that bracelet. I love what it represents.
"The 'Green Bracelet' is the symbol of the Diamond Empowerment Fund. The rough diamond and malachite Green Bracelet was created by Simmons Jewelry Co. to help support educational initiatives that develop and empower people in African nations where diamonds are a natural resource.
For Simmons Jewelry Company, Green provides inspiration and reminds everyone of Africa’s most important natural resource, the human being." See what I mean?
But I'm going to keep it 100 (I love saying that): I hadn't worn My Green Bracelet in awhile, so when I was peeking around in a retail store yesterday and the young lady that works there asked me about My Green Bracelet, I couldn't quite remember the details of its meaning. Someone gave that to me as a gift, she said. Does it mean something? "Indeed it does," I responded with a smile. "Google Russell Simmons + diamonds for the details. But what I can tell you for sure is that it means life."
