Some want a simple neutral design while others want bright splashes of colors and vibrant designs. Sometimes compromising on the decor can be hard to do if you want something very different from your spouse. Brass bells are very popular these days because they fit right in with nautical themes. 
The brass bell was once the main form of communications on board many classic ships. They used them in various things like warnings, keeping their time and keeping order on the ship. In some places, it is a symbol of the US Navy. One of the most common ways the bell was used on a large ship was to warn others of its presence during fog. This would let others know that the ship was there when they otherwise would have been unaware until it was too late. When the ship was under attack, had run aground, or caught fire, the brass bell was rung to warn the crew members of the emergency. They had certain ways the bells would be rung so everyone knew what the problems were.
Brass bells are used as tropical decor at bars across the country these days. Many bars will ask their customers to ring the bell upon leaving the establishment as a way to say you enjoyed your evening. This lets the employees know you enjoyed the food and the service you were provided. Musical ensembles featuring children also use brass bells to add to the beauty of the voices.

The ringing of the brass bell signifies an employee’s success, which allows them to brag a little bit, and keeps them on their toes knowing that they are competing with their fellow employees. Using or displaying brass bells has become a popular thing to do for private collectors and major business owners. Some ships still use them in their original capacity of alerting the crew and ceremonious occasions as well. You can see great examples of the bells once used on navy ships in different museums.
