The Meaning Behind a Red String-- What's So Special About it?

The red color, obviously, is a color that you're drawn to. It stands out and is “loud,” demanding attention.  It carries a sense of power and importance.


The red string bracelet is no exception to this rule.  It has been worn as a symbol of protection across many cultures, from the Middle East to South America for thousands of years.   


Alef Bet Jewelry has taken the concept of the red string bracelet by infusing it with a blend of meaningful charms.  These charms, including a lucky hamsa hand, the evil eye, a heart, and a tree of life charm among many others, all contribute to the bracelet's multi-faceted symbolism.  


hamsa hand, also a multi-cultural amulet, ushers in luck and good health while at the same time pushing back any negativity coming your way.


The tree of life symbolizes an understanding of one's family roots and a sense of belonging.   A heart represents love, and an evil eye, a very powerful symbol, watches over and sends back any harm or evil intent that is on its way toward you.

How Do You Create the Luck of the Bracelet?


The person wearing the bracelet is actually the one who must activate the luck and protection of the bracelet. You hold the key to empower its luck and protection.  

Strange, right?

All you have to do is simply believe and want it. It needs to be "between you and the bracelet." Only you can create luck and prosperity by actually believing and making a personal connection.  It's a belief that bridges the gap between you and the bracelet.  By embracing this belief, you can create an aura of luck and prosperity around you.  The rest, as they say, is up to destiny.

Is This Bracelet From Kabbalah or Rachel's Tomb?

While this bracelet draws inspiration from Kabbalistic traditions, it is not an actual Kabbalah bracelet, In order for it to be, the bracelet should be blessed by a Kabbalah center. 


However, we encourage you to make your own blessings that encompass positive attributes and weave them into the bracelet. Blessings such as: health, conception, luck, success, happiness, love, friendship, joy, and fortune. One captivating, folkloric tale about the red string bracelet goes all the way back to the biblical Matriarch Rachel. You can read about this fascinating story of Rachel here.

What If The Bracelet Breaks or Gets Lost?

If the bracelet breaks, falls off, or if it is lost , then superstition says that the "evil/bad omen" went to the bracelet and not to you, the wearer.  In other words, the negative energy or bad omens were absorbed by the bracelet rather than affecting you.  The timing of its breakage or loss is often seen as very important. That it broke, was lost, or vanished at just the "right time."


Different traditions offer varying methods for dealing with a broken bracelet.  Some advise burying the broken red string bracelet in the ground, and placing it back into the earth.  Other traditions will have you dispose of it in a body of water. Your geographical location plays a part in the method of disposing of the bracelet, and your personal beliefs.


You might also be curious what to do if your red string bracelet breaks, but it appears to be repairable.  Can it be fixed?

The answer, of course, will vary by whom you ask. 


One preferred method of cleansing a broken evil eye, hamsa, or red string bracelet amulet would be to soak it in salt water. This cleansing method, or ritual, is believed to remove any lingering negative energy.  It allows it to be worn or used again in the manner you see fit.
