How do I know what bangle size I should order?
To determine your bangle size, you need to measure the widest point around your hand—not your wrist. You are going to have to slip the bangle over your knuckles to get it onto your arm. Grab a tape measure. Fold your thumb into your palm as if you are about to slip on a bangle. Wrap the measuring tape around the widest point of the knuckles on your hand, not your fingers, making a measuring-tape bracelet—which won't look quite as amazing as your new STACKED New York bangle, but you get the picture... Compare the measurement around your hand to the three measurements "around" that we offer—7.5 inches, 7.75 inches, and 8.25 inches. If you don't see your size, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 646.504.8874 and we'll help you. We can make bangles in virtually any size!
What’s this Argentium silver you use all about?
We think it’s the best silver alloy available today, which is why we use it. Here are some quick facts about Argentium silver that you should know:
1. It's whiter and brighter than standard sterling silver. For centuries, sterling silver has been made by combining silver and copper. In addition to these elements, Argentium's patented formula contains another ingredient that creates a self-healing, protective layer on the surface that slows the onset of tarnishing. Argentium has been formulated to be highly resistant to the effects of tarnishing agents such as pollution, perspiration, and UV light.
2. It's purer than standard sterling silver. While sterling contains 92.5% silver, Argentium contains a minimum of 93.5% silver.
3. It's a green metal. In response to demand for the preservation of our natural environment and natural resources, Argentium is always made from 100% recycled silver.
4. It's good for your skin! If you've had problems wearing silver or other white metals before, you should be safe with Argentium. It's hypoallergenic and 100% nickel-free.
How do I take care of these beautiful Argentium bangles, bands, Mini Stack Necklaces, and earrings?
We’re so glad you asked! To keep your Argentium silver STACKED New York jewelry looking as gorgeous as you do wearing it, please always store your jewelry in the STACKED pouch provided. While Argentium silver is a highly tarnish-resistant luxury silver that will retain its whiteness far beyond standard sterling silver, it will eventually show signs of aging. Fortunately, there is an easy fix to getting your gorgeous Argentium silver jewelry looking as good as new:
• At the first sign of any color change on either your silver or blackened silver pieces, take a cotton cloth or cotton ball and gently wipe the piece with Windex with vinegar (not ammonia) or hand sanitizer. Unlike sterling, Argentium displays a more yellow/copper tone than gray/black.
• Avoid using any commercial polishing cloths or silver cleaners on your Argentium silver jewelry, as these are much too harsh. Also, as with your other precious metal jewelry, it's always best to remove it before entering swimming pools or hot tubs, or if carrying out any activities in which the jewelry could come into contact with chemicals.
