Reconstituted turquoise has been formed into a lovely looking faceted 9/16" x 3/8" piece (14.25mm x 9.5mm) and will be transformed into a dainty & delicate bangle bracelet with a 14k gold filled bangle band.
Reconstituted turquoise does not have the same properties as natural turquoise stone which is normally very soft, porous, and loses it's color. Only a small percentage of natural turquoise gemstones are hard enough to be cut without cracking. And those are extremely expensive. Whereas reconstituted turquoise is made from ground up turquoise combined with epoxy fillers and color treatment so that it's hard enough to be cut and faceted and non-porous enough to do a better job retaining color.
This blue bangle bracelet makes an elegant looking blue bridesmaid bracelet. And also stacks great together with others from my collection as you can see from the second to last picture. Have fun stacking them in 2, 3, 4 or more for the ultimate layered look!
Please specify size in notes box during checkout. 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 it for you. All of my bangles are closed and can’t be opened. Therefore, they have to fit over the hand.
Petite: (7 inch circumference) - Extra Slim Adult or Average Teen
X Small: (7.5 inch circumference) - Slimmer Than Average Adult
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 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: specify a custom size for your bangle bracelet.
This bracelet created and hand crafted with great care and love for you and yours. All of my items are special handmade creations that are original Frosted Willow 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, a full size wider than average...
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.
With respects to international orders, you are responsible for any customs charges, import taxes, VAT taxes or local handling fees for putting your package through customs for you that might be added by the government or your local mail service. For example in the UK, Royal Mail may charge an extra handling fee in addition to import or VAT taxes. These fees are the responsibility of the buyer / importer. Please be aware of such charges for importing goods from abroad prior to ordering.
Thank you so much,
Just contact me within: 3 days of delivery
Ship items back to me within: 7 days of delivery
Request a cancellation within: 1 hours of purchase
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
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 charge to ship to me. I will cover shipping back to you with standard shipping after the resize :)
I do have to have a tight return policy of being notified within 3 days of delivery and shipped back to me within 7 days of delivery. This protects me from "event buying" for example; if I make a large number of bracelets for a wedding such as bracelets for bride and for bridesmaids, which is a lot of work on my part, and then at the conclusion of the wedding the customer wants to return all the items because they've only been been worn one time so appear to be unused, no I cannot accept such returns. I work hard to make all my jewelry including larger orders for a wedding and my jewelry is not eligible to be "borrowed" for occasions and then returned. Thank you for your understanding :)
For returns requested and returned on time, as soon as I receive the item, I will issue a refund to you for the price of the product, not including the shipping charge in either direction unless their was a mistake on my part with the order then I would refund the shipping charge too. If I sent your item free shipping, then this amount would be deducted from any refund unless there was a mistake on my part.
I cannot refund or replace any items that have somehow gone missing from your delivery address, but have been marked "delivered" by USPS or other shipping service. Once marked delivered it is considered your property. Then you must contact the deliverer to conduct a search.
If you are a gift recipient wishing to return gifted item(s) you may exchange any non-custom gifted item(s) for item(s) of equivalent value from my shop. The shipping charges would be your responsibility... I can only accept gifted item(s) for a refund to the original buyer if the request comes from the original buyer and the item qualifies for a return based on my shop policies herein.
If you are a gift recipient wishing to have an item resized, I'm more than happy to resize for you. The shipping charges would be your responsibility.
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.
