Virtually everyone likes “cool and unique-looking” jewelry. But at Nikken, jewelry is never just about appearances. It’s about function, too. According to the BBC, the “global sale of therapeutic magnets is estimated to be at least $1 billion a year.” At Nikken, we appeal to both those who simply want attractive jewelry and those who want to improve how they feel.
Everyone reacts individually to different modalities. What works for one doesn’t apply to all. I can only tell you my personal experience with magnetic jewelry, and that applies specifically to the Kenko PowerBand®. I’ve worn the PowerBand necklace since Nikken first launched it in October 2010. Because I commute to work, I have chronic neck and shoulder pains from gripping the steering wheel and dodging drivers who appear to want my early demise. I don’t really care how or why the PowerBand works; all I know is that my neck and shoulders feel a lot more relaxed when I’m wearing it. I don’t overthink things; since it works, I keep wearing it.
Sharing with loved ones is the most natural behavior in the world, so I put the Kenko PowerBand around my husband’s neck and wrist. He’s one of those men who doesn’t wear any jewelry, but since 2010, he puts on his necklace and wristbands himself, without being prodded. I also put the PowerBand necklace around my then 11-year-old Chow/Labradors who proceeded to live to be 15 and nearly 17. (That’s really old for 65-pound dogs, for those who don’t know about canine lifespans.) They were headstrong boys who generally didn’t put up with anything on them for more than a few minutes but during all those years, they never tried to remove their PowerBands.
This is a roundabout introduction to our newest magnetic jewelry, the Kenko Heart Set. Pre-launched last weekend at the Active Wellness Preview hosted by Royal Ambassador Dave Johnson and Gold Consultant Mee-Jin Chong, the Kenko Heart Set is composed of a pendant and a pair of gold-tone earrings. The pendant is engineered with 800-gauss neodymium magnets and the earrings with 600-gauss. Because they’re made to Nikken specifications, they’re hypoallergenic, 316L stainless steel for durability, non-corrosive and nickel-free.
Those of you who already own the Kenko Perfect Link® II will find that the Kenko Heart pendant fits on it perfectly. The pendant is gold plated on one side and stainless steel-colored on the other, so you get a duo-tone piece with an etching of the Nikken logo. The earrings are gold plated and small enough to wear with multiple piercings.
When you wear the Kenko Heart Set, you’re really displaying your Nikken Heart. The Kenko Heart Set makes a wonderful gift and statement. It’s a gift from the heart and may well improve how you feel. Don’t overthink it. Just show people you care. As we approach the holiday season, make it easy on yourself and purchase ahead for the mothers, aunts, nieces and other deserving folks in your life.
