HAPPY VESAK DAY !!! Finally another public holiday, LONG WEEKEND!!!
It has been a really busy week for me but I’m glad I survived!! I plan to do NOTHING this weekend because I seriously need some rest!!
Today I’m gonna show you what my mom received for her (belated) Mother’s Day gift!! Yes, I know….. that’s like 2 weeks ago BUT it’s never too late to share good things!! And you won’t regret reading this post! Trust me!
Well, we didn’t really celebrate Mother’s Day this year but had bought her a lil gift (the gift is belated present too) instead! Something she had been eyeing for ever since I showed her the image!
Nice right!!? This is Nautilus from THE ONYXE! My mom love it almost instantly! Well, purple is her favourite (but not eggplant) and this bracelet is not just a simple accessories you wear to look good.. Read on to find on why….
THE ONYXE is founded in 2015, striving with the aim of providing their customers with a luxurious addition to their wardrobe, yet remaining affordable.
Started out as a hobby, Lenix Shane Neo, a chemical engineer turned designer, became a full-time passion of crafting artisan bracelets for men and women alike, providing only the best design elements for the customers looking for a healthy lifestyle and something to accentuate be it their collectible time pieces or branded luxuries.
Troubled with recurring migraine issues since a young age, he came across natural stones which were recommended as a solution to improve his condition, and indeed, it was effective. However, the flipside to it was that it looked too much like religious edifices which would trigger code red on the fashion police radar, which is not exactly the best accessory to wear at all times.
Which I totally agree… (-___-)
Knowing my mom has some knowledge/interest on all natural stones (agate, onyx, etc etc), I showed her THE ONYXE website. Ever since, she’s been telling (dropping obvious hint) she like the “purple” one.. Actually I quite like it too because it has got the bling-bling beads.. Who can resist bling bling!? LOL~ XD
Now let me introduce the name & benefits of these natural stones to you…
Agate is a stone of strength. It was used by the Ancients on the breastplates of armor to give warriors strength and make them victorious in battle. Energetically, it is considered to give strength in both battle and physically.
Agate enhances creativity and strengthens the intellect, making it a beneficial stone for both students and artists. It is also known as a good luck stone. As a stone of harmony, one of the things agate does is balance yin/yang energy.
Agate increases energy. However, because it is a grounding stone, it does not increase energy at all times, but rather enables bursts of energy as needed. In this way, agate is a conservation stone, and enhances longevity.
Blue Sandstone (蓝砂岩)
Blue Sandstone symbolizes enterprise, success, victory and glory; which can enhance the power of leadership and strong and be able to enhance the body’s good spirits, drive out evil spirits; clear the mind and relieve the pressure. The brilliant stars shining in the dark blue sky bring courage, confidence and willpower and boost vitality and energy.
Opal Stone (欧泊石)
Opal is a stone of inspiration which enhances imagination and creativity. It can bring inspiration to projects and to life and Spirit. Its own spirit is at times like that of a child spontaneously playing, dashing color where ever it pleases. Carrying this imaginative spontaneity into the realm of you life can bring strong creativity.
Mentally, opal is said to enhance memory. It is also used to decrease confusion.
Traditionally in crystal healing opal has been considered good for headaches, eyesight, Parkinson’s disease, blood, insulin regulation, PMS, and the immune system. Note that healing crystal meanings are spiritual supports to healing and are not prescriptions or healthcare information.
If purple is not your cuppa tea, they have many other design for you to choose too! There will be new creations & limited editions at times hence following them on FACEBOOK and INSTAGRAM definitely gives you the latest updates!!!

Aren’t you proud of wearing the world’s one and only design!?? Confirm plus chop nobody have the same bracelet as you! Uniquely yours!
THE ONYXE provide size chart for your easy reference so that you will know your size..! But the thing about buying the RIGHT size online is always tricky! You can’t try it or even visualise if it fits you.. SAD right!?
Don’t feel sad yet! If size doesn’t fit, you can always send it back to THE ONYXE and they will restring it for you FOC – the only thing u need to pay is postage!! Buy at ease!!! Who’s gonna worry about buying wrong size man~~
Enough of intro, now let me show you the “purple” one which I finally got for my mom! Oh by the way, this is not exactly Nautilus.. I customized it slightly to my mom’s liking and great thanks to THE ONYXE for accommodating my requests!!
Such nice packaging right!!!!? Who would have thought of using such tubes as packaging!? Innovative!!
Have you notice the difference between my (mom) bracelet & Nautilus??
Well, IF YOU HAVEN’T, LOOK AGAIN!!
The center piece charm had been changed to Opal and there’s a ring charm around it! Not only that, the lil silver bead at the “back” of the bracelet is replaced by another sandstone too.. Wait wait.. that’s not all!! One more thing you definitely can’t tell, this bracelet is 8mm instead of 10mm!!
My mom also brought up a good point which I didn’t realize… The elastic band of this bracelet doesn’t seems to have an end!!? You don’t see any ugly knot hidden between the beads nor any hook to connect them.. I tried to look for the connecting joint/point but I can’t find it. Maybe I’m just not observant enough…
(Image grabbed from google)
There is a difference when wearing bracelet with/without the joint. I feel that with the knot/hook, I will always get distracted and want to adjust it to the position I prefer or to even hide it when it’s exposed. Is this consider OCD!?? 😕
Without the knot/hook, it doesn’t really matter which side I should adjust because it’s BEAUTIFUL no matter which side I’m looking at!! Do you get what I’m trying to say!???
In case you’re wondering, my chubby hand is wearing a size S bracelet (if I’m not wrong).. My mom’s wrist is 16cm and usually THE ONYXE will cater some allowance for better comfort. So this allowance actually kinda fit me!! I’m finally a SIZE S after so many donkey years!!! LOL!!
Here I’m trying to pinch the bus with the hand wearing bracelet but iphone doesn’t allow me to set aperture and there goes my bus… LOL
Well, I hope above images are enough for your viewing pleasure.. After reading such long post and looking at so many beautiful bracelet, don’t you wish to grab one or two for yourself, your BFF or even your partner?? A unique bracelet that not only looks good but makes us feel good too!
