The stone was mined and cut in the U.S., then is set in fine silver, framed with a decorative recycled sterling silver beaded border and antiqued to emphasize the details. The recycled sterling backplate features a small logo mark.

Measuring Your Wrist for Cuff Bracelets:
The best way to get a good fit is to measure the inner circumference of a cuff bracelet you already have that fits you well and look for a bracelet with those dimensions. If you don't have a cuff bracelet to use for comparison, then you can measure your wrist. To do this, use a cloth tape to measure around your wrist where you will wear the bracelet. Use this measurement as your wrist size.
Silver - 100% of the silver used in our designs is recycled. Silver is a precious metal, and Pure silver, also called fine silver, is 99.9% pure, often stamped ".999". Pure silver is too soft for products like jewelry. So, to make fine silver more durable copper is added, creating sterling silver, which is 92.5% silver and 7.5% copper, often stamped "sterling" or ".925". Our sterling silver only ever contains silver and copper, and never contains other metals like zinc and nickel, which can irritate sensitive skin. Over time, any sterling silver jewelry exposed to air will tarnish, but this tarnish can be easily removed with a polishing cloth.
Copper - Copper is an element and a mineral known for its warm red-orange color, ductility, and malleability. Copper has been used for thousands of years for jewelry and many people find that copper jewelry relieves joint pain from arthritis. When copper is in contact with the skin, it combines with the air and oils in the skin to create a green layer of copper salts, which is harmless and will usually wash off with soap and water. Over time copper will darken to a natural patina if left exposed to air. The best way to keep your copper jewelry from tarnishing is to wear it regularly, otherwise, copper patina can be removed with a polishing cloth and stored in an air-tight plastic bag to slow down tarnishing.
Jasper - Jasper is one of the birthstones associated with the sun sign of Virgo and is the birthstone for the month of October. It is found in all colors including red, brown, pink, yellow, green, grey/white, and shades of blue and purple. It often contains organic material and mineral oxides which give it interesting patterns, bands, and colors. Many of these patterns resemble landscapes with mountains and valleys, thus "picture" appears in the name of many well-known jaspers.
