This elegant sterling silver Mobius bracelet is finely engraved with the words of Amazing Grace:
"Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound, That sav'd a wretch like me! I once was lost, but now am found, Was blind, but now I see."
The first verse of this famous 18th century hymn is engraved on this silver bracelet. The author, John Newton, was originally the captain of a slave ship, but after a slow conversion to Christianity became a leading figure of the anti-slavery movement in Britain. Probably written in 1772, the words of Amazing Grace convey some of the profound changes of Newton's life. 1772 was significant as the year the Somersett Case determined that slavery did not exist in English common law. It encouraged the nascent anti-slavery movements in both Britain and the American colonies.
The unique design of the Mobius strip appears to have one side, which allows the bracelet to be inscribed with a surprising number of words to be read without interruption on its length. The beautiful elliptical shape sits comfortably about the hand; the unique twist to the design represents the paradox of a plane or loop without end, an apt symbol for infinity. Since the infinite for many equates with the divine, the Mobius bracelet is the perfect medium on which to inscribe prayers and other inspiring and memorable quotations.
