The Really Big One
THE RBO ! This is our thickest leather band at 8mm - an antique brown braided leather bracelet and pure silver personalised bead or beads.
Please note the bracelet in one of the pictures, included the brown cord on either side of the bead to stop it sliding . We no longer include this as the beads fit perfectly and does not require it . However if you like this about the design, please state so at checkout .
There are three different shades of vintage browns for you 8mm RBO , please see the listing picture and state with you choice , or your bracelet will be made with our most popular mid shade antique brown ( number 2 ) .
The clasp we use is stainless steel with a snap close mechanism , to ensure safety of your treasured beads.
Please choose how many lines you would like on the bead from the options . Each line can fit up to approximately 15-20 characters and with the thicker 8mm bracelets it can be possible to have two or three names or name and birthdate on one line as in the listing main photo . Please contact us if you have questions about customising the text - there is also the option of having two or more separate beads . Please see pics.
If you would like the text to read horizontally across the length of the bead - this is possible but any names longer than 5 or 6 characters in text will mean a bigger bead - please refer to the options/variations on checkout . You can have more than one name with this option but size of bead will be determined by the longest name.
Matte or Polish Bead - The pure silver bead can be finished with a mirror shine, a matte duller finish or a brushed finish with a little patina giving a ' dirty' look. The default will be a polished shine- please state if you would like a different finish at checkout.
IMPORTANT MUST READ
Please also choose from the options , the exact wrist size - NOT BRACELET SIZE . A good way to do this is to place string snuggly around the wrist and then measure the string with a ruler .
As a rule of thumb around 19cm is an average mens sized wrist and 16cm for ladies .
To confirm... the size that is entered at checkout has to be wrist size and not what you would like the overall final bracelet size to be . We do not take responsibility for a bracelet being too small or large, due to incorrect measurements and will expect postage and material costs for any size correction returns .
These bracelets can also hold our pure silver handprint or footprint beads.
