Bangle: Ladies of the world wear arm cuffs loosely
A bangle should never be too tight. A bangle that is too tight will cause the wrist bones to hurt. Just like closed bangles, arm cuffs are suitable for wearing loosely so that they caress the wrist. Some jewelry heroines have difficulty slipping rigid bangles that are closed and unclasped over the carpal bones. An arm cuff makes it particularly easy to put on. Closed bracelets fit best when there is about 0.5 to 1 cm between the circumference of the wrist and the circumference of the bracelet. An arm cuff, on the other hand, is more flexible due to the small opening and can also be put on with a little less distance to the arm. In addition, the size can be adjusted to your arm by gently bending the bangle with an opening.
Which arm cuff? Gold, silver or rose?
Investing in an arm cuff made of real, recycled sterling silver or gold or gold plated is always worthwhile. An arm cuff always has a decorative effect on the arm of its wearer and is sure to draw a few looks. Gold is classic and looks wonderfully warm, especially on gently tanned skin. A silver arm cuff is great, especially in winter. A look combined with several arm cuffs is also a great option if you want it to be a bit more eye-catching. Simple arm cuffs are timeless and don't go out of style that quickly. Worn individually, they look clean and simple. If you combine several clean arm cuffs and mix, for example, a silver bangle and a gold bangle, the look is a little more edgy. Rose gold bangles are also a nice way to express your style.
Silver and gold bracelets: how to wear them!
A silver arm cuff is a great choice, especially in winter. A great way to create a very special look is to wear the arm cuff over the long sleeves of a cozy wool sweater. A modern look that is quick to make and yet something special. Incidentally, the clean models that we at fejn jewelry make are definitely suitable as unisex models. A simple model can also be worn as a men's arm cuff. While the female jewelery nomads usually reach for the golden arm cuff, the men tend to prefer the silver bracelet. Men love the cooler look of 925 sterling silver. If you like it a little looser, more filigree and a little more "flexible", you can also opt for bracelets. Of course, we also have a large selection here.
Arm Cuff: Silver without nickel for sensitive skin
Our real jewelery is not only particularly durable and sustainable. It is also nickel-free and is therefore also suitable for people who are allergic to any materials. Materials containing nickel quickly lead to itchy redness and swelling, especially on sensitive skin areas such as wrists and forearms. Last but not least, genuine silver and gold jewelery is also the best choice for the skin. The materials we use are also lead and cadmium free.
You can find out more about the material used in every product description of our arm cuffs. Our sterling silver arm cuffs are fully recycled and our solid gold arm cuffs are also fully recycled precious metal. They are made of 14K gold and are embossed with 585. The gold-plated arm cuffs from fejn are made of sterling silver and gold-plated with 18K gold.
The history of the bracelet
Archaeologists assume that early bracelets were worn as early as 7,000 years ago. At that time they were made of grass, branches, shells and later made of copper and bronze. About 2000 BC craftsmen began making bracelets out of gold and silver. The bracelet made of real gold was then decorated with shells and stones and was a symbol of prosperity and wealth. While the ancient Egyptians wore arm cuffs (yes, the bracelets often had an opening at that time) decorated with semi-precious stones, the ancient Greeks tended to use a kind of cuff on the lower or upper arm. Most notably, this adornment was seen on men dressed in armor, thus showing their status.
This expression of self through bracelets continues to this day. Hardly any piece of jewelery says so much about oneself as bracelets. In the 70s, bangles and bracelets with peace signs were worn as a sign of the hippie movement, in the 90s the trend towards friendship bracelets started and to this day festival-goers wear the "bracelets" even after the event to express their taste in music and lifestyle .
Bangle: Proper care for silver and gold
After wearing, it's time to clean! Fortunately, our arm cuffs made of real gold, gold plated or 925 sterling silver are hard-wearing. They don't require much attention or care . Nevertheless, you should clean them after wearing them so that the high-quality materials remain beautiful for a long time. With a soft microfiber or cotton cloth, you can easily remove skin and dirt particles from the sustainable arm cuffs. In this way, the real gold or silver bangle retains its shine for a long time. Since silver oxidizes when it comes into contact with air, you should keep your new favorite piece in a locked box after wearing it. Should your arm cuff nevertheless start to tarnish, silver cleaning cloths or special silver cleaning solutions are suitable for removing the unsightly areas. Gold cleaning cloths are a good choice for gold jewelry. And another tip: Polished with a standard eraser, satin-finished jewelery looks like new again.
