The pearl had magical powers and made all of nature more beautiful. When the pearl was stolen, the dragon and the phoenix fought to retrieve it. In the struggle the magic pearl fell from the sky and turned into a beautiful lake when it touched the Earth.

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.
