Aluminium is a perfect alternative to sterling silver; the jewellery grade aluminium cuffs are lightweight, do not tarnish and are hypoallergenic (good for wearers who are sensitive to certain metals such as silver).
Brass (golden colour) and copper (bronze/rose gold colour) cuffs are more weighty than aluminium and have the benefit of being alternatives to gold or rose gold. Due to the natural PH balance of each individual wearer’s skin and the environment, these two metals will naturally tarnish. This is not a fault but unavoidable. Each copper or brass cuff is supplied with a coat of wax which will slow down this process however, when tarnishing does occur, this can easily be rectified by using a lint free cloth and a metal cleaning agent.
These cuffs can be adjusted slightly by squeezing tighter or widened by pulling apart gently. Please see our video on how to properly wear your cuff here, as continuous movement to the metal will cause weakening and inevitably snap.
