Our bead bracelets are made from genuine gemstones mined around the world. Each stone was created beneath the earth's surface during geologic changes spanning millions of years. For these bracelets, our bead artisan selected gemstones such as white jade, white turquoise, white howlite, ruby red carnelian, red jadeite, black onyx, and black agate; this particular bracelet is made with white jade.
The gemstones are paired with a decorative dangling "tag" made of high-quality .925 sterling silver. To create Charley Harper's signature cardinal, our silversmith first carved the image using the lost-wax technique, then cast it and polished it multiple times to create the dimension and luster achieved here.
