Hammered Herkimer Diamond Bangle Cuff
These bangle cuffs are lightweight and slightly adjustable. They are sturdy enough and they should not become misshaped unless brute force is used. These would be a perfect addition to your other Simply Chic Jewelry pieces. Pair them with the matching hoop earrings and rings or wear them separately; they work either way! These bangles come in the hammered texture only.
Herkimer diamonds are double terminated quartz stones; they are not real diamonds. They get their name from the double termination and 18 facets on every stone.
•••Note - Herkimer diamonds are naturally formed. Some have inclusions (black spots like the gold one) and some do not.•••

MATERIALS & SIZE:
♥ 14 gauge 14K Rose Gold Filled / 14K Gold Filled / Argentium Sterling Silver Wire
♥ 20 gauge coordinating wire for the prong setting
♥ 4-6mm herkimer diamond - no two will ever be the same
♥ One size fits most
♥ Each bangle starts out as a piece of wire that is hand cut, formed, filed, and textured.
♥ A prong setting is created out of 20 gauge wire
♥ The "T" bar and the prong setting are then soldered to the cuff.
♥ The piece is then tumbled for durability.
♥ After the initial tumbling process the herkimer is set in the prong and the cuff is tumbled again. Don't worry, this beauty shouldn't be going anywhere,
♥ Tumbling helps to polish, harden and clean the metal and each bangle will tumble for 6-10 hours.
