Jade Bangle Burma Jadeite Comfort Cut Natural Stone 53 x 46 mm Rare Oval Shape
This is a rare find, an oval shape rather than the common round. It is a comfort cut, rounded outside and flat inside, aka D cut oval. This one of a kind, solid stone bangle bracelet was cut from a slab of opaque Burmese Jadeite Jade. The combination of colors is accurately shown in the pictures. It is natural stone also known as A grade. Note: When you see Jade labeled with a particular grade remember that this grade only pertains to treatments, not the quality. The quality of this stone is good and can be quickly noticed by the high pitched ring of the sound made when two of these bangles are struck together, an indication of a pure stone that has no significant cracks or flaws. Do expect natural stone to have minor surface flaws and fissures as some naturals do not polish out.

About Stone Bangles
Bangles are thought to store one’s personal powers. Many people never take one off once they put it on. If one breaks during an accident it is said it saved a bone from being broken. Wear it in good health!!
Are you curious to know what size bangle is right for you and don’t have access to a bangle sizer? Lay your hand palm down onto a metric ruler with your fingertips touching one another. With the other hand grasp your thumb and little finger above the knuckles and squeeze them towards each other, making your hand as narrow as possible then check the measure. You will want a bangle that you can barely get on in order for it to better fit your wrist.
Always use lotion or a plastic bag to put a stone bangle on and also to take one off, this will make it last longer as it does not become stressed. Avoid putting it on and off often, best left on long term.
