Two types of links follow one another on the bracelet. The first type of link is represented by an infinity symbol on which is written "APRES LA PLUIE LE BEAU TEMPS" (“After the rain comes the good weather”).
The second type of link represents the same infinity symbol with in the centre of a loop a design depicting the rain and in the centre of the other loop a sun representing… good weather !
