Friendship Colours: Finding the Right Friendship Bracelet

Friendship colours can add a meaningful sentiment to a special gift between friends and loved ones. Discovering the meaning behind each shade can make your thoughtful gift that extra bit special. Within this guide, we will be taking you through the friendship colours of bracelets and cords, and meanings associated with friendship.

What Do Friendship Colours Mean?

Each friendship is unique so it's no surprise that when it comes to friendship bracelets, there are an array of meanings. The friendship colours you choose for these bracelets can help you to reflect your sentimental feelings towards your friends and your shared relationship.

But with so many colours and styles, how do you know which friendship colour to pick that best represents your bond? Our complete guide walks you through each shade, so you can discover the perfect choice for your friend.

The History of Friendship Bracelets?

Friendship bracelets are popular for many reasons, with the main one being that everyone has their personal memories associated with them. They can spark memories of a significant time in your life, or simply act as a reminder of a close friend. Whether you see each other everyday, or are separated by continents, you'll feel their love radiating whenever you wear this piece.

So, where did this craze begin? Though many may not realise it, the famous 'knot style' found in traditional friendship bracelets can actually be traced all the way back to China in 481 to 221 B.C. Many people were attracted to the idea that a wish would come true once the bracelet wears away. Modern bracelets, however, are typically secured by a clasp in order to maintain durability. However, there are a number of bracelet types that offer no clasp, and can also be given as a token of friendship. From traditional bangles, to cuff bracelets for a modern edge, there's a plentitude of options to fit yours and your friend's style.

Although many years have passed since these conspiracies came to light, the legend stays the same. Friendship bracelets both celebrate and strengthen a special bond. But with so many designs and friendship colours available, how do you find the right piece your confidante will adore?

What once started out as a few threads secured by a knot has grown into something so much bigger. Nowadays, our high-quality friendship bracelets are handcrafted and hand-woven to ensure they'll last a lifetime. Crafted from high quality materials, the bond between you and your friend never has to fade.

Delicate yet striking, there are many types of friendship bracelets, colours and designs to choose from. With so many options you're sure to find the right friendship colour and bracelet for your close friend. And, here at Monica Vinader, you'll find that our range of friendship coloured bracelets symbolise meanings that can add an even greater touch of significance.

What Do Friendship Bracelets and Friendship Colours Symbolise?

This type of bracelet is given from one friend to another as a symbol of long lasting love, companionship, and happiness. The friendship colours, however, have greater meanings that can add an extra layer of thought to your sentimental gift.

Rose Gold Symbolises Harmony

A rose gold friendship colour is the perfect choice for those looking to express harmony and kindness. Rose gold jewellery is delightfully feminine and charming, and can be effortlessly worn when strengthening bonds between two special friends. Ownership of a matching rose gold bracelet in this friendship colour not only symbolises harmony, but you'll be looking fashionable while doing so!

Red/Coral Gives Luck

As a bold friendship colour, the meaning of red bracelets can inspire the feelings of luck and good fortune. Share the luck with your close friends by layering your cord bracelets on your left wrist. This side of your body is traditionally known as your receiving side as it's closest to your heart. You can then layer up your friendship colours with thin and thick stacking bracelets to elevate your style to show your unique personality.

Black Embodies Energy

Black is a bold, strong colour that represents the positive energy which radiates throughout your friendship. For those wishing to emulate classic style, black as a friendship colour will add class to every outfit it graces. A contemporary take on this is black diamond jewellery. Diamonds themselves symbolise forever, and combined with black evoking feelings of energy, you can show your true devotion to your loved one. Black also makes a fabulous friendship colour for the men in your life, with men's jewellery incorporating this shade frequently.

Blue Evokes Courage

Enchanting and wonderful, blue is the friendship colour of courage. Adorning this friendship bracelet can help you to remind yourself and your special friend how bold they are each and every day. You can also be inspired to personalise an existing chain bracelet with blue pendants to represent courage. From blue lace agate and turquoise to aquamarine, take a chance and add the spirit of courage to your wrist.

Green Reflects Truth

Truth is an important factor in any strong bond - without it, a friendship can crumble in an instant. For the friendships which pride themselves on having a solid foundation of trust, a green cord will help to symbolise this. Another way to gift this friendship colour to one they hold dear is by choosing a green onyx pendant for a charm bracelet.

Silver Encourages Strength

For a strong and successful friendship that will stand the test of time, silver is the perfect friendship colour. Silver is a classic tone that signifies success and durability, making it great for showcasing your ability to work through anything together. Silver jewellery also holds a connected meaning of riches and wealth. If your friend is just starting a new business, or venturing into a journey they hope to bring them plenty, opt for this friendship colour. Not only this, but silver metallica is a neutral tone which will compliment any outfit, meaning you'll never have to take the silver bracelet off.

Mink Represents Success

Another friendship colour which symbolises a successful relationship is mink. Mink cords present a beautifully subtle pink colour mixed with brown and grey tones. Whether you want the bracelet to bring you success or you're already celebrating a win, a mink cord is enough to carry you through.

Celebrate All Your Friendships

Celebrating a special bond has never been easier than with friendship coloured bracelets symbolising your connection. Whether you're there for each other no matter what or have a certain memory which brought you both together, your meaningful bracelet will remind you of the good times. And, now that you know the meanings behind different friendship coloured cords, you'll be able to represent your bond both passionately.

You can go one step further than friendship colours in making a meaningful piece with engravings. Signify the strength of your bond with our personalisation options. Engraved bracelets are available to add even deeper meaning by inscribing your favourite quote or message. Every time you glance at your engraved friendship bracelet you can be reminded of all the happy memories shared together. Add one of these personalised gifts to yours and your best friend's collection, so they can also enjoy the sentiment!
