A typical style of love beads.
A typical style of love beads.

Love beads are one of the traditional accessories of hippies. They consist of one or more long strings of beads, frequently handmade, worn around the neck by both sexes. The love bead trend probably evolved from the hippie fascination with non-Western cultures, such as those of India and Native America, which make common use of similar beads.[citation needed]


"At moments of suburban relaxation, in our circle of semi-bohemian homes, we smoked pot, wore dashikis and love beads, and frugged ourselves into a lather…" —John Updike[1]

"Love beads, mood rings, and candle light. Zodiac says the time is right ...", Janet Jackson, "70s Love Groove"
