The Phantom of the Opera Bracelet tells the tragic story through symbolic beads and charms. Makes a meaningful gift for a Phantom lover. 

Oft retold in film and on stage, Gaston Leroux's tragic, horrific love story is one of the world's most beloved novels. A young singer is tutored in singing by the Angel of Music. She soon learns the Angel is an eccentric masked man with a beautiful voice; unable to resist she unmasks him revealing the true tragedy beneath- the disfigured face known all around the Palais Garnier as: The Opera Ghost-The Phantom of the Opera!

Customers passionately requested the creation of this bracelet. Their love for this story prompted me to design the first bracelet in the collection outside of opera proper. It has been incredibly popular!

Each bead and charm of The Phantom of the Opera Bracelet represents a character or moment from the book. Some of the most important beads and charms are described below and you can see all of the symbolic descriptions on the spiral chart photo above or to the left. Also, a story chart explaining the symbolism of the beads and charms accompanies every bracelet. Click here to see the chart.

  • Wealthy Raoul, Christine's hope for a brilliant future, is a gold glass bead. Naively innocent and gifted Christine is a clear iridescent bead. A small pink heart bead is their love.
  • A bead with floating roses symbolizes Christine’s triumph singing Marguerite in Faust.
  • The Phantom, who sees all in his realm, is a black cat's eye bead. An angel wing charm indicates his identity as the Angel of Music.
  • Tiny crystals framed with deep red and gold beads and a chandelier charm indicate the majesty of the Palais Garnier. A clear crackled disc represents the chandelier's famous crash to the floor.
  • A faceted chrome finish bead evokes Christine being abducted through her spinning mirror.
  • Twisted blue beads and a rowboat charm symbolize Christine being ferried across the secret lake of the Paris Opera.
  • A sparkling dark blue goldstone oval and music note charm represent the magic of Erik's beautiful voice.
  • Christine is unable to resist the temptation to reveal his identity, she rips away Erik’s mask (mask charm) revealing his horrifying deformity.
  • Leroux describes Erik as looking like a “Death’s Head”, I chose a skull bead to represent this.
  • The strange circumstances surrounding Christine bewilder Raoul. (Question mark bead)
  • The Lyre charm symbolizes the central chapter of Leroux’s book called “Apollo’s Lyre” in which Christine reveals the truth of what is going on with Erik.
  • Erik’s love takes a dark turn when he overhears Christine and Raoul declaring their love. I chose a dark heart shaped bead to represent this turn in his emotions.
  • The character of the Persian is represented by a glass turquoise bead indicating one of the precious stones found in Persia.
  • Black oval beads symbolize the barrels of gunpowder Raoul and the Persian discover under the Opera House.
  • A large double cone bead symbolizes the decision Christine must make to either marry Erik or detonate the gunpowder. She chooses Erik and floods the gunpowder with water (large blue droplet).
  • She allows Erik to kiss her and kisses him in return weeping for his sad life. A red heart is her kiss, a blue teardrop bead, her tears.
  • Erik’s heart is transformed by her compassion and he releases her to marry Raoul. (Large swirly heart bead)
  • Overcome by emotion, Erik dies of a broken heart. A red heart made of crackled glass indicates the final tragic end of the Phantom’s story.

    These bracelets are charming but they are even more precious in person. I bought the Phantom bracelet and I LOVE it. The entire bracelet tells a story so it not only is beautiful but whimsical! I also bought a bracelet for my daughter from Les Mis and it is just as special! If a show means a lot to you don't hesitate to buy one of these unique bracelets. You'll love it!!
