Sergio first encountered this intricate braid on the handle of an old sword at a thousand year old Viking stone parliament in Reykjavik, Iceland. After seeing a Danish woman in a park braiding her daughter’s hair in the same fashion, he was inspired to create this design in honor of this ancient motif.

About the magnets:
Chinese doctors have believed for millennia that a magnetic field, when next to the body, could markedly increase the wearer’s vital life force, known as ‘Chi’. The observed benefits were found to increase with the magnets’ proximity to acupressure points. We carefully place magnets in our bracelets near two important pressure points of the wrist.
Each Sergio Lub magnetic bracelet contains two powerful Rare Earth Magnets; one at each bracelet tip, carefully positioned to be worn over the wrist’s pressure points. Research has shown that magnetic fields influence biological systems and are believed to attract and repel charged particles in the bloodstream increasing circulation, stimulating tissue regeneration and reducing pain. In 1954, Dr. Linus Pauling received a Nobel Prize for his discovery of the magnetic properties of hemoglobin. Pauling found that iron and many electrolytic salts in our blood, circulate bio-magnetically. Therefore, the proximity of a magnetic field may result in an acceleration of circulation, and the transfer of energy to all areas of the body.
