This wide unisex cuff is made of oxidized sterling silver and features the stylized climber silhouette. The width of the cuff is approximately 3/4" and the metal gauge is 18, so the piece is substantial, with a real nice weight and thickness. It's not really heavy but you will feel like your wearing the real thing... because you are! They are made to order in unisex sizes S to XL (please see below how to size your cuff); for custom sizes, contact us.
If you want the cuff personalized for a present or your own enjoyment, let us know - we can add text, numbers, and lat/long on the back.
We decided to use oxidation on these cuffs because they are easier to maintain; if you prefer the cuff shiny, please let us know. Because they are made to order, please allow 1 week for shipping.
For sizing, please follow the following steps:
1. First determine your wrist size by wrapping a flexible measuring tape snugly around your wrist just below the wrist bone (where you would be wearing the cuff) and mark where the measuring tape overlaps on your wrist.
2. Next, determine the fit you would like; for a tight fit, use the wrist circumference you measured and determine the size from the chart below. If you prefer to wear your cuff loosely like a bangle, order up one or even 2 sizes from your measured size.

The standard opening of the cuffs is approximately 1 inch; however, they are designed so that they can be slightly opened or closed to perfect the fit. You can alter the fit (open or close to about 1/4 inch larger or smaller) by using your hands, but please bend the cuff by wrapping your other hand around the entire cuff. Keep in mind that this is an adjustment to be made only a few times in order to get it just right. Continually bending (plasticly deforming) the cuff every single time you put it on/take it off will cause work hardening of the sterling silver over time and the cuff will eventually break!
The easiest to put your cuff on is to first relax your forearm; then, with the cuff in your opposite hand, anchor one end of the cuff into the soft underside of your wrist between the two tendons while gently pivoting the other end over the top of your forearm. Then simply slide the cuff down to where your wrist meets your hand. This method allows you to securely wear a cuff which has a tighter opening than the thickness of your wrist and is way more pleasant than forcing and dragging both ends across your skin.
