A fertility bracelet is a bracelet made from gemstones that are believed to improve a woman’s chance of getting pregnant. Examples of such gemstones are Amethyst, Moonstone and Rose quartz.

Some of these stones may help improve blood circulation and minimize blood disorders such as excessive blood clotting.

Ancient Culture and Fertility Bracelets
Adorning with fertility stones is not a recent practice. Women have been decorating themselves with fertility gemstones and charms for centuries in hopes the positive energy from these gems will raise their fertility levels. For hundreds of years, the Native Americans in Southwest America have been making fertility bracelets of Kokopelli
– the native’s god of fertility who brings new life to the tribes through healthy pregnancies. The god’s feast day is in early spring when rebirth and renewal are also celebrated.
Some cultures commemorate women's fertility. The festivity starts with a ritual where the woman is adorned with fertility stones. Sewing fertility gemstones into a girl’s garments is a rite of passage to womanhood.
Fertility Bracelets and Fertility
Today, many women wear these bracelets for the exact same reason the bracelets were worn centuries ago. Whether out of belief, tradition or suggestion from friends, many women would wear these bracelets from the idea it wouldn’t “hurt” them if they did and it might even increase their chances of conception.
There is no scientific study and evidence saying fertility bracelets actually work. Even without scientific proof, there are women who swear these bracelets have improved their fertility levels, although there isn’t a way to prove their claims. Fertility bracelets may work or not. It is entirely up to you to see for yourself. Wearing a fertility bracelet may not have any physical effects but it may have psychological effects. It may act as a subconscious reminder, a good luck charm, a fertility gift or just something that may help you feel good about yourself.
Whatever the case, it wouldn’t hurt to have one.
Fertility Bracelets and Your Cycle
Fertility bracelets cost anywhere from $12 to $70, depending on the fertility stones used. You can also get fertility bracelets that help you calculate your fertile days with the help of a small ring that can be placed around the bead representing the first day of your cycle. Some of these fertility bracelets have different colored gemstones to help you identify what stage of your cycle you are in.
