The back is stamped with official .925 sterling and Haunted Cypress maker’s mark.
With a dash of le joie de vivre, this bracelet was made to spread soul healing, joyous feels to whoever may wear it. Simply wrap this bracelet around your wrist and carry the magic of the South wherever you go!
Sterling Bezel Piece- Approx. 1.50” long x 1.10 wide.
Cuff Size- metal band is 6” long with a 1” gap to insert wrist. (So 7” all together, which is generally considered Medium) with a 2.5” Diameter.
*Pro Tip: To prevent wear and tear on the bracelet cuff, find your “sweet spot” the first time you wear it so that it can be slipped on and off without bending the metal every time. Too much bending of the band will harden the metal and can eventually cause it to break.

STERLING SILVER CARE
*STORAGE: While not being worn, it's best to store your silver jewelry at room
temperature in a dark space, preferably in an airtight bag. Avoid direct sunlight and
humidity, do not leave in a car or on a windowsill. If your piece does get wet, dry it
*WEARING: -Never submerge your silver jewelry in water. Some tap water may contain sulfur which will discolor the metal. While wearing, avoid contact with hairspray, perfumes, or lotions to prevent damage or discoloration. Never go to bed while wearing your jewelry.
Gemstones (Especially Louisiana Opals) can be very delicate and should never be worn during strenuous activities to avoid damage to the stone. Dropping gemstones and glass cabs will likely result in damage to the piece, so be kind to your jewelry and wear with care!
*MAINTENANCE: Sterling Silver may tarnish over time, to keep your sterling piece looking new, gently rub with a soft cotton polishing cloth until shine is restored. Doing this regularly will prevent tarnish altogether. The use of liquid chemical jewelry cleaner is highly discouraged.
