About this bangle:
The bangle is marked along the sides with our calypso pattern. The heads are Sea Turtles and Clam Shells to represent the rich Caribbean Sea which are casted separately and soldered onto the marked wire with .925 sterling silver solder. Each item is handmade and therefore every piece is unique. Bright cuts are done individually by hand.
West Indian Bangles are a tradition of the Caribbean Islands. They were originally created through the unison of East Indian and African designs. These West Indian Bangles are typically worn in pairs but I price and sell them individually so you can choose how many you want to buy. These bangles are unisex such that both men and women wear thick bangles and thin bangles although men tend to prefer the thicker ones. They are often given to children to remind them of their heritage.
