This item is hand-forged individually in Taiwan,and made from 5mm solid square 999/925 silver bars. You can feel the weight of silver but wear it in the low profile. Over time, fine silver jewelry will be tarnished due to oxygen so every piece has individual color wore out by the owner. We provide blackened silver bangles for your darker needs. Brass version is also available. Our bangles comes in 3 size, please refer to the size chart. We also make customized size; orders would take 5-7 more business days to process.
