Measure Your Wrist

When buying a bracelet online, it is important for your comfort to choose the length of your bracelet; so that it is not too tight around your wrist or too loose not to wander around your forearm.

Once you know your wrist size, you just need to add an extra 1 to 3 cm (depending on your comfort) to know the ideal size of your flexible bracelet.

This method works for both women's and men's bracelets.

Measure wrist

The first, easiest way to measure your wrist circumference is to use a tape measure, wrapped around your wrist, it gives you an exact measure of the size of it.

The other way is to cut a strip of paper or use a cord that wraps around your wrist, where you usually wear your bracelets.

Make a pencil line on the cord or on the paper ribbon, then measure with a flat ruler the line length to line.

However the tape measure method is easier to implement, it is the one that I advise you.

999 silver in Mexico

Mexico is the world's largest producer of silver ore and a leading producer of silver jewelry.

This is why many wholesalers and suppliers of silver jewelry are in Mexico.

Silver metal is extracted as ores mixed with other rocks and ores and must be separated and refined in order to produce pure silver or 999 silver bullion.

This silver is then used for the manufacture of jewelry, to do this, it must be alloyed with other metals (usually copper) to obtain silver jewelry having a better mechanical resistance.

Hallmarks in silver jewelry

Hallmark of a jewel or a precious metal object (gold, silver or platinum) is the official guarantee of the title (its degree of purity) of the considered metal.

These precious metals have common characteristics : they're very resistant to oxidation, they have an incomparable brilliance, and above all they are ductile, malleable.

Therefore, it's necessary to combine them with other metals in order to increase their mechanical strength and to be able to use them in the form of jewels or pieces of silverware.

Silver is commonly alloyed with copper; and gold with zinc, nickel, copper, or silver. It's in order to find your way among this range of precious alloys that hallmarks have appeared. Hallmarks are a guarantee of the title of the jewel's metal or object of art.
