Simulated Birthstone Bracelet - Simulated Birthstone Jewelry
HOW TO ORDER:
Select birth month (see 3rd pic), bangle band, and quantity needed, add to cart. If wanting additional months, then from within your cart click on the bracelet photo. This will take you back to the order page so you can add additional months. Repeat as needed to fill your order.
I make these simulated birthstone bracelets with rhinestones or glass stones (if December) and transform them into a dainty & delicate sim birthstone bangle bracelets with your choice of bangle band in brass, silver filled, 14k gold filled, or sterling silver.
Rhinestones and glass have the beauty of a real stone, but without the high price tag.
These rhinestone simulated birthstone bangles stack great together with bangles from my collection. Have fun stacking your simulated birth stone bracelet bangle for the layered look;
Personalize your rhinestone simulated birthstone bracelet with custom initial charms to create a customized simulated birthstone charm bracelet. Just add the charms you want to cart.
Please specify size in notes to seller during checkout for your bangle bracelets. Choose from one of my regular sizes below by measuring one of your favorite bangles, or give me the circumference of the widest part of your hand where the bangle has to be pulled over; then I can size your bracelet for you. All of my bangles are closed and can’t be opened. Therefore, this bangle has to fit over the hand.
Petite: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Younger Teen
X Small: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult or Older Teen
Small: (8 inch circumference) - Average Adult MOST COMMON SIZE
Medium: (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium Adult 2ND MOST COMMON
Large: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult
X Large: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult
BETWEEN ANY TWO SIZES ABOVE: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.
Custom size: Specify a custom size for your simulated birthstone jewelry.
This rhinestone simulated birthstone bracelet created and hand crafted with great care and love for you and yours. All of my items including this simulated birth stone jewelry are special handmade creations that are original Frosted Willow concepts and designs.

HOLIDAY SHIPPING NOTIFICATION -- During busy times of the year such as the holiday season or Mother's Day, the shippers may be overwhelmed with packages and can have trouble making timely deliveries Some packages may travel alternate routes during such times causing delays. The only service USPS guarantees is Priority Express 1-2 business days. During such times I work around the clock to handle all orders and ship out on time. But any shipping transit issues are out of my control. I wish I could hand deliver each package to all of my wonderful customers! Thank you so much for your understanding.
Also various pieces may have different turnaround / production times and they are displayed on the page for each piece. Shipping time will vary according to the option you select at checkout.
If you didn't include your jewelry customization requests in "notes box" during checkout such as sizes needed (see size chart below for bangles), initials or number of gift boxes, please send me a message at the following link with that information as soon as possible so I can make and ship your jewelry on time.
If important order details such as initials aren't provided to me I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. If no size is provided to me in time to produce the piece and meet the shipping deadline, then it's assumed the most common size is wanted.
Please see the bangle size chart below, and message me with any questions;
My standard sizes for "slip on bangles" are below. Keep in mind they slide on over the hand. So aren't sized the same way as traditional bracelets using wrist size. The following descriptions are meant to make it easy to choose a size if unable to measure hand circumference for a gift. See custom measuring tips below size chart.
Bangle Size Chart:
Petite Hand: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Slim Teen
X Small Hand: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult or Average Teen
Small Hand: (8 inch circumference) - Average Adult or Adult Size Teen MOST COMMON SIZE
Medium Hand: (8.5 inch circumference) - Medium Adult 2ND MOST COMMON
Large Hand: (9 inch circumference) - Plus Size Adult
X Large Hand: (9.5 inch circumference) - Extra Large Adult
***Between sizes: I can also make the bangle halfway between any two sizes above. This can be helpful if caught between sizes, or if you're estimating "size range" for a gift.
*** Custom size: Use a flexible tape to measure the circumference of the widest part of hand when held narrow as if sliding on a bangle. Tuck thumb into palm toward pinkie finger as far as comfortably possible while holding other fingers side by side pointed straight out (hand flat / knuckles flat in the back). The widest area is usually the bottom of thumb area going around, or lower set of knuckles area going around. Measure tightly.
*** I'm always happy to resize if needed. There's no charge for any new metal used on a resize. But re-shipping would be the responsibility of the customer.
My bangle bracelets are without a clasp for quick & easy putting on, and removal, so must slide over the widest part of your hand when held narrow.
If you didn't add enough total charms to your order including initial charms or crystals, etc, please add the extra charms to you cart so I can make your custom jewelry within the promised time frame;
I want to send your jewelry on time. And I want your jewelry to be made in the correct size on the first go around. However, if I'm not provided with important details such as initials needed, or size, and no reply is sent to my message, I may have to alter the shipping date until I hear from you. Or I may have to make your jewelry in the most common size in order to meet the shipping deadline because if it's a gift I like to make sure you at least have that. If it needs to be resized later we can work something out.
Please contact me here with any personalizations / customizations as mentioned above;
I'd be happy to include a card with a short and sweet hand written message or if you would like me to print the message instead please communicate that to me in a timely fashion.
If you have a special shipping request, just let me know at time of purchase so I can do my best to accommodate.
While I can usually estimate a delivery date range for U.S packages, I cannot outright guarantee the performance of the shipper. International shipping times are hard to predict.

Please be aware of such charges for importing goods from abroad prior to ordering.

I want you to fully enjoy your purchase. If you are not 100% satisfied, please contact me, and I will do my best to make it right for you. I'm happy to re-size any bangles you ordered free of resizing charge. I only ask that you cover the re-shipping charges.
Any hand stamped or engraved personalized items or custom made items are not eligible to be returned, unless there is a defect such as incorrect initials... Custom made items include bangles made to a custom size specified by the customer... Or if a custom size wasn't provided to me in time to meet the shipping deadline, and I made the bangle size 8" as per my policies. In such a case I'm happy to resize any bangle without charging for the work or without charging for any new metal required to complete the resize provided shipping is covered by the customer. Hand stamped or engraved personalize items are not eligible for return.
Wedding jewelry / bridesmaid jewelry is not eligible to be returned. I work hard to make larger orders for a wedding including for multiple bridesmaids or a multiple jewelry set for bride. On occasion I've had customers attempt to return jewelry after the conclusion of their wedding because it's only been worn one time. Jewelry that I make for a wedding order is not eligible to be "borrowed" for the occasion and then returned.

Regarding tarnish of jewelry, all silver is naturally prone to tarnish. It can collect tarnish very quickly depending on compounds in the air it's exposed to such as perfume, hairspray, humidity, sulfur from groundwater sprinklers, (eggs or onions cooking), and the list goes on and on. Silver can tarnish just sitting in a jewelry box if the air has any humidity or tarnishing compounds. And tarnish is not grounds for a return as other silver products would have also developed tarnish under the same conditions.
All silver requires care to keep looking shiny. And it's an industry in itself with cleaning solutions, polishing pads, anti-tarnish strips for storage, and anti-tarnish jewelry boxes.
Brass also can develop tarnish and can be removed with a cleaner.
