About this bangle:
My brother in Trinidad makes these bangles because they are so heavy and thick that I can't manipulate the bracelet on my own. This is the classic West Indian Bangle. The bracelet features a Hand Chiseled and stamped traditional pattern on the sides. The heads are symbolic of the Cocoa Pod and they are casted separately then soldered onto the marked wire with .925 sterling silver solder. Each item is handmade and therefore every piece is unique.
About West Indian Bangles:
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.
