I really love the bright green sprinkles!
Wish I knew more about Jade so I could be brave enough to buy an investment piece. No matter how much I look at pictures and videos and read up I still can’t grasp the nuances between a $500 bangle and a $5,000 bangle.
Heck, even those $50 eBay bangles look lovely to my eye.
My two were under $200 each, better buy a bangle worth $20 for $200 than a $50 bangle for $5,000 ha ha.
Wow! Thanks for the insight @voce! That is impressive with the difference of 8mm! It definitely opens up a world of bangles under 60mm. You're right about the temperature, it's a cooler day today in TX and so I ran my left hand under cold water, soaped it up and managed to barely fit the 63mm. Ta-da!
My knuckles may or may not like me right now.
@mellowyellowgirl here's the lavender that I squeezed into.
Great bangle box!
Here's my $50-60 bangle. Coarse to medium grain with a spot of seaweed. IRL it's exactly wakame color, not bluish.
I got some cloisonne bracelets and decided to pair one with a bluish lavender bangle.
Look at all these bangles I've accumulated in the span of a few months. They're setting back my gemstone ring projects for sure...
I've purchased a few more to gift, and the last two slots are for an icy mixed color with some imperial green and an "icy lavender" that I have yet to receive. So keeping my fingers crossed...
Helped Lil Sis buy this bangle.
This is not my jam at all but it's not a bad purchase. Just something I would never wear as it's too blueish and leans grey at times.
She wanted the water though! It's got excellent water.
So weird helping people buy things you don't like yourself!!!
I love it
I’d like one like thisFor those of you who like luscious blues
I don't! Pretty proud of myself for being able to buy something I don't really like!
Can’t wait to see what you findThank you!! I have so much to learn!
I love the colour! But I’m not sure I love the texture?
More even texture but a bit more colour variance?
I seem to be gravitating toward “light” and “mostly single colour”. But I wonder if that’ll shift - maybe next week I’ll have totally different preferences lol!!
Yours is so pretty. It looks like a forest on the wrist
That “black”/dark streak thumb-side in your last pic - funny story, I’ve got a nephrite cuff in the works with Leon Mege (really long story there, the jade part just sort of happened) and I really wanted one white streak basically just like that! Unfortunately the material didn’t cooperate so we settled for a few white twigs instead of one thick branch
Someone who likes blue princess bangles and can wear a 54 pls get this and put me out of my misery:
Gorgeous!Today is jade bangle day so here is my new blue. It was described as 明亮。No idea what that means but it is pretty and a good budget piece.
I really should not be buying. I am setting so many things. I think blue needs lots of diamonds to go with it. It has this beautiful glow in the sun.
Ok so I just tried this trick that was in a video that some lovely PSEr posted. Seems like I might actually be size 54-55. Cut a hole in a yogurt lid and measure thr diameter!
Yes my initial measurements were no good, I think 55 is more likely. I have digital calliper a but need to buy a new battery for them. Thank you!
You need to be able to squeeze your hand through the hole in the lid. Can you? No one I know can wear bangles their actual wrist sizes as it’s physically impossible to squeeze their hands through to wear.
