Every bracelet is made with natural Tourmaline of the same shape & size, however, the color of the bracelet may vary slightly. The difference will not be in the color itself so much, but a varying ombre pattern. This could mean the bracelet is slightly darker or lighter due to more brown than green or vice versa.
How To Keep Your Extender From Catching & Pulling
If you have a small wrist & don't need to use the extender, there is an easy way to keep it from hanging from your wrist! Take the end of the chain & clasp it with the end of the bracelet. This will cut the length of the extender in half! If you want to purchase the bracelet without the extender, let us know in the "Add A Note" section at purchase.
This bracelet is perfect for those who have sensitive skin. The chain, findings, & beads are hypoallergenic & with proper care, will not tarnish, turn, or stain your skin!
