The Significance of Salsa Jewelry
In Puerto Rico there are different places you can go salsa dancing with a live band. Salsa dancing has been part of our musical history since the late 1960s and boomed during the 70s. We have had internationally renowned artists such as Hector Lavoe, Robertito Santarosa, and Ismael Rivera. The music and dance have become so popular, you can find social dancing clubs almost all around the world. It is a fun and culturally rich pastime.
Styling Tips for Pieces in the Salsa Collection
At Coquí el Original® we decided to immortalize this worldwide popular music and dance into a small, but beautiful collection. If you love wearing European-style bracelets like Pandora, Brighton, Chamilia, Troll Beads, the Salsa Dancers Charm in silver and gold is compatible. Both the sterling silver .925 and solid 14K gold pieces can be worn on chains up to 4mm thick. A note, make sure the clasp of the chain is also 4mm or less so the charm can go through.
Unique in this collection is the Salsa Dancers Link Charm Bracelet in sterling silver .925. The adjustable 8-inch-long bracelet has the Coquí, Salsa Dancers, and Puerto Rico Map Charms. The Coquí charm comes in the beautiful matte finish. The Salsa Dancers also have contrasting matte and polished sides to differentiate between the man and the woman dancers. As a lovely detail, the Map comes with a genuine diamond over the “i” of Puerto Rico.
The Salsa Dancers also come as classic pendants for thin chains. An alternative to this style of pendant is if you already have a link charm bracelet you’re looking to add a new piece to. Pick the Salsa Dancers Pendant in either silver or gold and find a local jeweler that can solder the piece to your bracelet. This item is not only perfect for salsa dancers, but for ballroom dance lovers in general.
