Real Men Wear Beads

It’s unfortunate that most men in my family can’t wear jewelry to work, not even a wrist watch. My husband, a law enforcement officer, wears an indestructible watch and his wedding ring. My dad and uncles are mechanics so jewelry is not an option. On special occasions, however, the men in my life break out the jewelry, whether it be a fancy wrist watch, chain, or bracelet.


When Seeking OM sent me two men’s gemstone bracelets, I was chuckling at thought of telling my husband about the concept of gemstone jewelry. He doesn’t understand chakras or crystals. It’s too abstract for him as he is a concrete, black-or-white kind of person. He has never taken a yoga class. He looked at me with one eyebrow raised as I explained to him the impact of the jewelry and the energy it releases. He jokingly said, “If I wear that thing, will it send us the energy to win a million dollars? Let me get this straight, Danielle, you have to CHARGE your bracelet under a Full Moon? Why don’t you just use that sage thing that you whirl around the house with and clean it that way?” Who knew I married a comedian?


The first gemstone bracelet is the Dumortierite and Lava Stone. Seeking OM hit the nail on the head with this bracelet, as my husband’s favorite colors, black and blue (reminding us of the thin blue line).

  • Dumortierite: promotes self-discipline, clarity and enhances focus and organizational abilities. It assists in standing up for yourself, offering patience and courage.
  • Lava Stone: stone of strength, courage and fertility
  • Chakra: Throat, fifth, expression of feelings via communication

These qualities could relate to my husband being in law enforcement. He has a lot of self-discipline, requires focus to do his job, he must stand up for himself to face criminality, and needs a lot of courage and patience to deal with what he encounters daily. Communication is very easy for him; he articulates his thoughts professionally and kindly, and is often my rock of strength. This is the perfect gemstone bracelet for him.


The second gemstone bracelet by Seeking OM is Tiger’s Eye. I am giving the Tiger’s Eye bracelet to my dad. He has been surrounded by three women who believe in alternative, complimentary healing methods, so he is accepting and open to trying new things.

  • Color: browns and blacks
  • Aides: Tiger’s Eye is grounding, balancing, earthy, and promotes optimism
  • Chakra: Solar Plexus and Third Eye: The solar plexus is related to the metabolic and digestive systems. The Third Eye provides perception before ordinary sight.

My dad always tries to look at the bright side of things, even when I am having a bad day. Living with three women for most of his life, he provides balance, and is the grounding force in our family, bringing us all where we need to be to live peacefully.


If you didn’t know by my previous posts, Seeking OM, is a Boston based artisan company. Their jewelry, for both men and women, can heal the 7 chakras and can empower you to be the best version of yourself. When you visit the Seeking OM website, you will be able to customize your own jewelry by stone (Howlite, Tiger’s Eye, Moonstone, Kyanite), style (plain, Buddha, Ganesh, Sandalwood, Lava stone) and size (small, medium, large). The options are endless!

Although the men in my life can’t wear jewelry daily due to their professions, they can still take advantage of the benefits of crystals and gemstone jewelry when they are home or on special occasions. At the end of the day, real men wear beads.

  1. My boyfriend wears beads and so do I! Both bracelets and necklaces. I think they are very nice looking. I love that these can be customized. My favorite part about them are the meanings.
