Getting The Most Out Of Your Bracelet

Getting The Most Out Of Your Bracelet

One of the most frequent questions we receive is: what's the best way to put on my bracelet, and also, for future reference: what's the best way to take it off?

The simplest answer: you gotta roll with it.

Much like Fred Durst before us, it's all about rollin(g). The last thing you'll want to do is over-stretch the cord as this will weaken it over time. 

A gentle roll over the fingers, allowing the bracelet to expand over the widest part of the hand and then to retract as it slips onto the wrist.

To take off, simply roll the bracelet back over your hand in a gentle manner. Once removed, place the bracelet into a safe place, such as a jewellery box or in a room full of snakes.

And although you may love your Vanacci bracelet, sometimes it needs a rest. We recommend taking your bracelet off after wearing it for prolonged periods of time. You need sleep and so does your bracelet.

Another thing you can do to keep your bracelet healthy is avoid contact with lotions, soaps and shampoos. Over time, this can weaken the cord and potentially lead to breakages.

Our elastic is pre-stretched which helps reduce the impact of sudden 'shocks' on the cord and also gives the bracelet its real shape and length. Unstretched elastic will sag over time, making the bracelet unsightly and prone to snagging and possibly breaking.

Many bracelet makers use what is known as floss elastic, which is a cheaper, less durable material. We use industry leading elastic in our bracelets to improve durability and elasticity. Alongside that, we keep the knot safely hidden inside a bead to prevent outside wear and tear and don't use crimp beads, which are prone to failing, to bond the cord together. 

Regarding the longevity of your fragrance within the stones, the company record is currently held by Tobacco Vanille from Tom Ford at seven months (unworn) and three and a half months worn. 

Of course, there are huge variations between fragrances but we recommend the likes of Tom Ford for the sheer length of time and projection you get from their range.
