Constant yawning, low energy levels and poor concentration throughout the day are signs of inadequate sleep. For adults, seven to nine hours of slumber is ideal but this does not factor in the quality of sleep. If you have problems falling asleep in less than thirty minutes, wake up more than once while asleep, become awake for twenty minutes or less after initially falling asleep and spend less than eighty five percent of the total time in bed asleep then a solution to achieve better quality sleep is needed to address day-to-day fatigue.
Since 2003, Philip Stein sleep bracelet wearers have acknowledged an improvement in their sleep quality but also towards their health and wellbeing. These sleep bracelets provide a 'natural solution' and are worn just before hitting the hay and removed after a good nights' sleep.

How does Philip Stein technology work?
The technology inside every Philip Stein accessory acts like an antenna – finely tuned to pick up and channel the beneficial natural frequencies that surround us, toward our bodies. In doing so, it helps tune us back to a state where we can perform and live at our best.
Is there scientific proof that the technology works?
We are working with research institutes around the world to scientifically demonstrate the ways in which our proprietary Natural Frequency Technology positively affects the human body. Preliminary studies have been very promising. Results from double blind studies at the Neurokinetics Institute in Canada and at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida suggest improved balance, ocular focus and a reduced feeling of lightheadedness when standing up abruptly – all wellbeing indicators.
How was the technology developed?
Natural Frequency Technology was discovered and developed by a group of engineers and scientists exploring the influence natural frequencies have on water. Years of careful tuning and testing later, it is the core of all of our products.
What are natural frequencies?
Natural frequencies are all around us and always have been. They are typically caused by lightning striking the earth, which happens, on average, ten times a second. Because there is a cavity between the earth’s surface and the ionosphere, the frequencies generated are trapped and propagate throughout the world. We believe that all organisms have evolved or grown accustomed to these natural frequencies, and our systems are tuned to operate best with them, rather than with the increasing number of man-made frequencies we experience in the modern world.

What options do men
have in choosing
their wedding bands?
Put simply, there are several. These days, the selections go beyond the plain and straightforward pieces that were typically offered and chosen. From modest hand-sculpted rings to striking multi-textural pieces that incorporates black-coated gold, the options are diverse, allowing the wearer to control the degree of personal expression.
What is a typical men’s wedding band? They are usually minimal in appearance that equates to a highly polished precious metal ring. Uncomplicated as they are, these pieces are generic and common and do not convey a pronounced sense of personal style.
However, this typical design provides a foundation for updated and modern interpretations that include mixed metal banding and textural metal finishes. Furthermore, the inclusion of black non-metal materials such as diamonds, sapphires and Black PVD coating (Physical Vapour Deposition) reflect a major trend in men’s jewellery. This can be observed in Boucheron’s Quatre Black edition pieces.
Boucheron’s Quatre Black edition exhibits a combination of traditional and modern forms, finely crafted with it’s contrasting colours and textures. It is an elevated juxtaposition of a highly polished white gold gadroon and an innovative black-coated PVD, hand-sculpted gold in a ‘clou de Paris’ texture. It expresses a style that is bold, confident and striking.
For a ring that is less visually contrasting, consider Boucheron’s Quatre Classique edition. The pink gold and chocolate brown PVD combination is less contrasting and its tones are warmer in appearance.
Boucheron Quatre rings are visually captivating and are a product of artisanal excellence. They feature signature design codes, rich in symbolism, adding sentimental and technical significance to the wedding band.
Grosgrain motif - A symbol of Parisian Haute Couture and of Boucheron’s ancestors. It is also a mark of skilful and meticulous gold carving.
Mirror setting/ Diamond pave - A Boucheron innovation – the metal is polished so that the light produced by the diamonds is reflected within it.
Clou de Paris motif - This visual form pays tribute to the rhythmic cobblestones of the city of Paris, home of the Boucheron workshops at Place Vendome
Gadroon - A symbol of eternal love. One of the Maison’s oldest codes that involve two rings juxtaposed to one another symbolising the harmony of a couple’s shared life together
These Boucheron Quatre design codes can appear together as a striking wide band, combining four distinct textures, or they can be more understated in the form of a narrow dual-textured band, discussed earlier.
Specifically, Boucheron Quatre rings come in three widths –
These different widths allow varying degrees of visual impact, providing a diverse range of expressions, from understated to bold, depending on the wearer’s personality.
Furthermore, these rings are also available in a diamond-paved option, providing an elevated sense of style.
A new addition to the Quatre range isolates the four design codes, with each texture performing its own solo.
For example, the Quatre grosgrain ring in yellow gold is understated and elegant with its rhythmic motif. This piece would be
ideal for those seeking a precious metal band that balances simple, classic and sophisticated aesthetics.
Boucheron Quatre rings are a presentation of reputable histories and technical innovation and excellence. Their approach can be compared and contrasted to producers of plain wedding bands, which may be imbued with little to no significance. For a crucial piece of jewellery marking a life event, and especially if it’s the only item of jewellery that men wear, quality materials and craftsmanship and expression of personal style should challenge the standard. And these standards have already shifted. Modern men are approaching jewellery with more consideration and stylistic awareness.

How to Pick the Perfect Wedding Band
The engagement ring appears to eclipse the wedding band with all its brilliance but consider the following...
Firstly, the engagement ring is worn by one. Secondly, wedding bands are the actual rings that soon-to-wed couples exchange on their big day making them highly significant pieces, mutually. Therefore, they are to be considered with more weight – don’t make them an after thought – prioritise them, front and centre.
Here are a few tips on selecting the perfect wedding bands...
QUALITY OVER QUANTITY
Consider wedding bands with a unique design that highlights fine craftsmanship. Avoid generic pieces that you can get from every jeweller. It may cost a bit more, but remember you will be wearing it for the rest of your life. The Boucheron Quatre Classic Edition is a prime example, featuring a delightful pairing of ‘gadron’ and ‘clou de paris’ forms.
MIX IT UP
Wedding bands don’t have to match exactly and share identical features. Show your individuality, whilst also maintaining visual consistency between the rings. Pick a design, in which there are textural or colour variants that allows personal and mutual connection. For men, we suggest the Boucheron Quatre Black Edition and for women, the Quatre White Edition with paved diamonds. Both stunning and unique while also sharing common design elements, notably the ‘clou de paris’ textures and ‘gadron’ edging.
MATCHING THE ENGAGEMENT RING
It’s common practice for the wedding band to be worn against the engagement ring – again the rings don’t have to match exactly. Distinct design and material variations of each ring provides an intriguing combination. As a rule of thumb, diamonds link two different rings together, even if the designs are quite different. The Boucheron Radiant Edition is the perfect example – a multi-textural display, elevated by a row of paved diamonds.
This is particularly relevant for men, as they usually only wear one ring. A simple rule, depending on hand size, determines the width of the ring. Too narrow, and the ring will almost fade away to nothing, losing its presence. Too wide, and it will overwhelm the wearer’s finger. Boucheron’s Quatre rings come in 0.3cm, 0.6cm, and 1.2cm widths, to perfectly cater to all men.
The 3 sizes are pictured below -
Of course, irrespective of the above, some men prefer to make a subtle statement and opt for a thin ring. In this case, the 0.3cm Boucheron Quatre band is perfect with its narrow width.
Unlike some generic bands, this Boucheron Quatre band is detailed with its signature design codes - grosgrain, mirror finish, clou de Paris and gadron.
Finally, and most importantly, please make sure you get a ring that you love, as you will, hopefully, be wearing it for the rest of your life!!!
