The Shogun is the original from the "Shogun" series of bracelets and one of the first that Enson Inoue designed.
The middle stone is Yamatodamashii engraved black onyx to provide strength, stamina and power and promote the fighting Samurai spirit. Onyx is great for negating negative energy, enhancing self-control and encourages wise decision making.
The hematite on the ends works the body's yin-yang energies to balance the ions within, whilst promoting focus and concentration.
The gold thread in the center is like a crown which represents the elite, because the Shogun was an elite Samurai.
The overall spirit of the bracelet is strength and power while remaining humble.
The Japanese symbols/kanji says "Yamatodamashii" (大和魂) which is roughly translated to "The Samurai Spirit". It was a name given to Enson by the Japanese media and people for the way he fought. It evolved into a philosophy and way of life as it incorporates values of Integrity, Honor, Compassion and Loyalty. So it has become a way of living and values to aspire to and live through.
For sizing, it is important to get it right, so please double check your size when you order. You can measure your wrist by recording the circumference around it. It is important to get the correct size to ensure your custom bracelet fits well. Example: a 6 inch bracelet will fit any wrist up to 6 inches.
Some stones are unique and vary in color. Lighting can also change the look of the stones too - every effort has been made to make sure the stones are fairly represented in the photos on display.
