A brief history of dreamcatchers
For those of you who know all about dreamcatchers, you can skip this section and move onto the next one. Those who don’t know much about dreamcatchers can read on to find out a little bit about them.
Dreamcatchers are quite a hot item right in the fashion circles for good reason, and now you can get them in belly button ring form which is all the rage. So what are dreamcatchers? Where did they come from?
There are many legends and stories, so we can’t really pinpoint exactly where they originated from. Many popular stories say that the Native Americans first invented the device. The basic idea behind the dreamcatcher is that it is hung above the bed of the troubled dreamer. The dreamcatcher has a small hole in the centre, with what is like a spider web surrounding it. The belief is that the good dreams are allowed to pass through the center of the hole, while the bad dreams get stuck in the webbing. At sunrise the bad dreams vanish and the sleeping person is spared all the bad dreams.
What kind will you find for sale?
Now that we know a little about the history of dreamcatchers, we can move onto some of the actual belly jewelery you can get. Now before we get any further we should probably clear up a little misconception about belly button rings. These are also know as navel bananabells or barbells. Some sites and shops list them like this, but rest assured they are definitely belly button rings!
As far as materials go, stainless steel is normally a popular choice as it last for a long time, and can withstand lots of different environmental abuse such as water and heat. It is very affordable, although you can certainly get more expensive material choices if that is what you desire. For those with a little more cash to throw around, silver coated belly button rings are a popular choice. You can even get gold plated ones, but obviously these are quite an expensive choice.
What kind of stones do you find in them?
Many dreamcatcher rings come with a stone embedded in them for extra appeal. Popular choice are rubies, sapphire and emerald. You can also get pearl and diamond ones, but once again these are a little on the pricey side for your average joe! The stone is often rather small, as it is normally placed in the center of the dreamcatcher or on the ball of the barbell. There are quite a few other stones available, so it all depends on what you are looking for really.
In terms of pricing, they tend to fluctuate quite a bit. For a very cheap one you will look at the region of a little under $10 if you are lucky. For a gold plated one you should expect to pay in the region of around $130 more or less.
Where can you buy them?
Belly button rings are quite popular, but you don’t often see dreamcatcher style ones in stores. Online shops are a good place to start looking, as there are many out there that tend to specialize in these type of things. Of course one of the most popular places to find them is Amazon, and you canto view some of the various models they have on offer. Remember to check the material and stone before you purchase to make sure you are getting a good deal.
