Our bracelets come in three different colours Cafe, Tekoa and Luxe. Below we will go in-depth about the materials used to make each bracelet.
Our Cafe bracelet is made out of copper. Copper bracelets not only look beautiful, but they have been used for its medicinal benefits since ancient Egypt times. Scientific data backing up the claims of healing are lacking but for those who support the use of copper bracelets, they see benefits such as reduced joint inflammation and pain relief.
Our Tekoa bracelet is made out of brass. One of the reasons brass is so widely used is because of its unmistakable color and sheen. It has a beautiful resemblance to gold but without the price tag. (Tekoa means trumpet in Hebrew and trumpets are made out of brass, hence the name.)
Our Luxe bracelet is made out of Argentium Silver. Argentium is a new generation of silver alloys that has a higher purity rating than your standard Sterling Silver - Sterling Silver is .925 while Argentium is .935! It was developed specifically to combat the tarnish that occurs as silver oxidizes when it comes into contact with air – and we love that. Say goodbye to your tarnishing silver and hello Argentium!
Our bracelets are fully adjustable and will fit most wrist sizes. We pride ourselves in the quality of our handmade jewelry and the unique qualities that each bracelet holds. Each bracelet is hand measured, formed and stamped making no two bracelets the same. We make our bracelets 6 inches in length which can be adjusted upon request.
We love wearing these bracelets and we love wearing them every day. That being said, they will tarnish over time, the speed at which they do depends on the use and care. We’ve gone out of our way to find a way to slow down the oxidation process to keep your bracelet shining new. We do this by double coating each bracelet with a specialized wax, they use this wax to protect artifacts in museums! We recommend removing your bracelet during prolonged water exposure ie. taking a shower or going for a swim.
We suggest cleaning your pieces as soon as you see signs of tarnish. A jewelry polishing cloth works wonders. Or if you’re looking for a simple household solution, ketchup with a soft cloth will do – it may sound bizarre but works.
If notice your skin turning green your copper bracelet is tightly wrapped. This is normal and causes no harm. Cleaning your jewelry as mentioned above will help with this issue.
