Default Paul's Mysterious Bracelet

It's been driving me nuts ever since I became a beatle fan (so you see i must get this fixed). What the heck is on Paul's bracelet or what is it? I never can find a clear enough shot of it to use the zoom

It's the "Make Poverty History" bracelet I think!
A lot of stars designed their own and they are or were for sale on the "Make Poverty History" website! Now it seems to just be the white bands for sale on the site:

Didn't Ringo give him a white "Peace & Love" bracelet a couple years ago?

I was surprised when I found this picture because you can actually read it.

Yeah doesnt Ringo have one like that? I'm not sure if it's an ID bracelet, he was reading the inscription on some 60s tv show and I think it came from his mother. I think he also mentioned that him and Paul both had one.

I think you are right lennluvr9. Ringo said it said something like "Happy 21 brithday Luv Mum" or such

Wasn't Paul's ID bracelet a gift from his bro???

Today he wears 2 Make Poverty History wrist bands and on more than one occassion when seeing him live I have seen him lift his arm up and move it in order to shimmy them down so he can play properly!

I was looking for that bracelet too.
Here's where you can see the original large picture of the bracelet above.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/pietsch...n/photostream/

I can't remember where I read it but I know for a fact Jane Asher gave it to him. It's sort of a sweethearts thing to do back then.
Ringo did have one too and what they are exactly are 1960's/vintage Speidel ID bracelets.
I managed to find one very cheap from the 60's that says Paul on it! And here's a site where you can personalize your own:

Our one with the boys' signatures engraved:

And I also found out about a jewelry designer named Ann Dexter-Jones who makes them in really pretty varieties and Ringo wears her star shaped necklace! Good luck!

I really like those. I'll try to see if I can find any articles or videos that mention them and the story behind them. There are also some on etsy.com
