Right Hand vs. Left Hand: A Compass-Jewelry Perspective

The History and Significance of Handedness

From the Latin word for "left" being "sinister," to societal favoring of right-handedness, history has shaped our choices more than we might realize. For example, in our Compass-Jewelry range, the Protection Bracelet, featuring black tourmaline, onyx, and black obsidian, has been traditionally favored by those who opt for their right hand, aligning with the belief in its grounding and shielding properties.

Cultural Insights: Right or Left?

Different cultures have varied beliefs about which hand is appropriate for adorning bracelets. In Hindu traditions and Islamic practices, the hand you choose for your Compass-Jewelry bracelet may hold spiritual or ritualistic significance. For instance, our 7 Chakra Bracelet is often worn on the right hand in these cultures to align with spiritual practices.

The Psychology Behind Your Bracelet Choices

Psychologically, many believe that your dominant hand should remain unadorned to not interfere with daily tasks. This is why our compass jewelry is designed to be lightweight and non-intrusive, making it ideal for either wrist.

Physiological Factors: Comfort and Functionality

Physiology matters too. The median nerve's placement could influence your comfort levels, making our Unisex Beaded Bracelets a popular choice for the non-dominant hand due to their ergonomic design.
