Choice of metal
Many people will look for copper magnetic bangles and bracelets. The main issue of copper magnetic bracelets and copper magnetic bangles is that wearing Copper Bracelets or Copper Bangle may leave green stain on your skin (This is normal because copper is absorbed from your magnetic bracelet though your skin). One way to around the problem is to look for the plated copper magnetic bracelets and bangles. But than, there is the issue that the copper do not come in contact with the skin. Copper based alloys will be cheaper than other metals used for magnetic jewellery.
|Copper is a natural element that is an essential micronutrient to ensure the well being of all aerobic life forms. It plays a vital part in the development and performance of the human nervous and cardiovascular systems, as well as the skin, bone, immune and reproductive systems, including gene transcription. Copper can also inhibit the growth of microbes, thus providing a measure of protection against harmful germs and bacteria in many environments. |
An improper balance of copper, iron and zinc can result in poor copper status, which over time may lead to heart and circulatory problems, bone abnormalities and complications in the immune system. The body can absorb some of this mineral through the skin.
Others will prefer to look for noble metals, that will not leave marks on the skin. These will be more expensive, and will includes Titanium, Stainless steel magnetic bangles and Silver. Having a magnetic bracelet or a magnetic bangles form those metals means that you will less likely to have an allergic reaction to the metal.
Stainless Steel Magnetic Bracelets offers many designs and plating (gold, silver). The stainless steel magnetic bracelets contain many magnets (up to 20 magnets) spread around the wrist, and they all have clasp closure. The size of the bracelet can vary from thick, broad Stainless Steel Bracelets that appear strong and chunky to thin, slim ones that appear delicate. Your personal sense of aesthetics will determine which of the styles will suit you the best. In Addition to the classic links design, the Stainless Steel Magnetic Bracelets comes in a Rolling Balls design, where hematite magnetic sphere shaped magnets provides acupuncture-like affects.
|Like all types of steel, stainless steel is not a single metal but an alloy that is a material made from two or more separate elements alloyed or "melted" together. Stainless steel is also 100% recyclable. In fact, an average stainless steel object is composed of about 60% recycled material, 25% originating from end-of-life products and 35% coming from manufacturing processes. |
What all steels have in common is that their major "ingredient" (alloying element) is the metal iron, to which a small amount of carbon has been added. That give stainless steel a bright shiny gloss and made it highly resistant to tarnishing and rusting.
The most common stainless steel alloy used for jewelry is 316L. Our stainless steel jewelry uses a high grade steel from 300 series called Grade316L, which are best suitable for invasive body piercing and do not release nickel salts into the body or induce contact nickel dermatitis.
Titanium is stronger and lighter than Stainless steel. Many people that lead active life style are looking for magnetic bracelets that will not be a hinder. The magnetic titanium bangles are most sought after by golfers, who want to have a magnetic bangle / bracelet that may not effect their swing as any stainless steel magnetic bracelet. Titanium magnetic bracelets will be an indispensable addition to any golfers equipment. We have both magnetic titanium bracelets and magnetic titanium bangles.
|Used in titanium magnetic bracelets, the metal is a lustrous, silver-grey metallic element. While has the strength of steel, titanium is weight comparable to aluminium (Titanium is 60% lighter than similar strength stainless steel). Titanium responds very little to electricity, heat and magnets (making it the perfect metal use in magnetic bracelet). |
Titanium forms protective surface layers, which gives it excellent resistance to corrosive attacks by saltwater, sea air and certain acids, and it is capable of being submerged in water for long periods of time without sustaining damage or colour change. Perfect for use in magnetic bracelets for the active person.
Because of its high tensile strength, light weight, extraordinary corrosion resistance, and ability to withstand extreme temperatures, TITANIUM is used widely in aircraft industry. Please note that our titanium bracelets are not the same quality (Titanium Alloy) that is being used in the aircraft and aerospace industry. They are made of Commercially Pure (CP) Titanium Grade 3, which are used in medical devices such as implants, heart valves and so on.
Silver has been known since antiquity. It has long been valued as a precious metal and used in currency, ornaments and jewellery. Many people simply will not wear any other Jewellery!
A soft white lustrous transition metal, Silver has the highest electrical and thermal conductivity for a metal.
Though can be found on its own in nature, Most silver is produced as a by-product of copper, gold, lead, and zinc mining.
Silver-ions and silver compounds show a toxic effect on some bacteria, viruses, algae and fungi typical for heavy metals like lead or mercury, but without the high toxicity to humans that is normally associated with them. Its germicidal effects kill many microbial organisms in vitro, which is one reason it is widely used in the jewelery industry.

Please take the time to measure your wrist so that you will not be disappointed with a bracelet that is too short or too long for you.
