1. What are your men's cuff bracelets made from?

Our men's cuff bracelets are all crafted from solid .925 sterling silver. Each cuff is 'solid' (not hollow) and of designed to have a balanced thickness and weight to allow for slight flexibility so it can be fit around a wrist.

What is "Sterling" Silver?

Sterling silver is an alloy of silver containing 92.5% by weight of silver and 7.5% by weight of other metals, usually copper. The sterling silver standard has a minimum millesimal fineness of 925, which is why it is often referred to as .925 Sterling Silver

Fine silver (which is 99.9% pure) is generally too soft for producing large functional objects such as jewelry; therefore, the silver is usually alloyed with copper to give it strength, while at the same time preserving the ductility and beauty of the precious silver metal.

2. Will my cuff bracelet tarnish?

Chemically speaking, silver is not very reactive - it does not react with oxygen or water at ordinary temperatures, so does not easily form a silver oxide. However, as pure (99.9% pure) silver is too soft to produce functional jewelry the other metals in the alloy (which makes silver "sterling silver"), usually copper, may react with oxygen in the air, and oxidize - which we refer to as tarnishing.

Each of our sterling silver men's cuff bracelets are treated with a slight coating of 'anti-tarnish' to prevent tarnishing. But like all authentic sterling silver jewelry, oxidization (or tarnishing) due to exposure of the acidity in the air does take place over time. However, getting rid of the tarnish is relatively simple and can be done by wiping the bracelet vigorously with a dry soft cloth.

It is important to note, that silver jewelry will tarnish very much faster if exposed directly to acidic or alkali substances (e.g. perfume sprayed directly on the item or if worn while taking a shower) and if stored in direct sunlight. Silver also tends to tarnish very rapidly on certain people due to high acidity levels in their sweat. There is no adverse physical effect, but the acidity will cause very rapid tarnishing and turn silver items worn close to the skin black in color.

3. How do I clean and care for a cuff bracelet?

Cleaning:

Mild Tarnishing: To clean your cuff bracelet, simply use any soft cloth and vigorously rub the bracelet - the tarnishing will come off relatively easily.

Warning: Be careful not to use hard or textured fabric (like a dishwashing cloth, for example) as that will cause scratching of the silver.

Heavy Tarnishing: If tarnishing is very apparent and is not coming off easily, which may happen as your bracelet gets older, or if your sterling silver comes into contact with a tarnishing agent (perfume, chlorine, amonia etc.) jewelry cleaner (or silver cleaners are widely available atany drugstore for around $5.00 - $6.00. Simply dip your bracelet in the solution and wipe it clean with a soft cloth.

Storage:

To care for your cuff, store it in it's box or in a drawer so that it is not exposed to light for extended periods when you are not wearing the bracelet. Also avoid spraying perfume directly on the cuff as that will also cause tarnishing. Also do not bathe with your cuff on, as soap and shampoo can cause tarnishing, if the item is not properly dried off.

4. How do I get an idea of the weight of a cuff?

The approximate weight of each men's cuff bracelet is stated on the item page. The weight is listed in gram.

As imagining the weight of something without being able to feel it is difficult, for comparison, we recommend the following:

  1. A quarter coin (25 cent) in your hand, weighs approximately 5.67 grams.
  2. If an item weighs 34 grams for example . . . it would be close to the weight of 6 quarters.

12. How do I know if a cuff will fit my wrist?

The majority of our men's cuff bracelets are of an industry standard length of 6 1/2 inches.

Ideally, most men will be able to wear this length comfortably as each cuff can be stretched slightly to allow for it to go around the wrist and then "squeezed" back to snuggly fit around the wrist, as shown below.

For bigger guys we recommend the following test: If a 6 1/2 inches thread or tape can go around "most" of the wrist - that is to say that it goes past the half-way point on each the side of the wrist, then the cuff will fit well. If not it is still wearable but we would recommend considering a cuff that is longer in length.
