Inspired by the character made famous in operas by Puccini and Massenet. Manon chooses wealth, comfort and diversion over love with disastrous results.
Gold beads with sparkling crystals and pearls represent the riches Manon cannot do without. Beads and crystals in jewel tones indicate gems while glass hearts symbolize love. A fleur de lis symbolizes the aristocratic Des Grieux and a glass cameo is the beautiful but shallow Manon. A swirling heart represents the destructive passion which brings them together and seals a dark fate.
All "Inspired By..." Series Bracelets come with a card that identifies the symbolism of the charms and colors used.
