Vintage NOS Copper Bracelet
Paula says - "This vintage bracelet has a wide reddish copper base with a narrow stamped golden copper band attached by rivets. The concave shape of the wide band helps the bracelet keep its shape and makes it more comfortable to wear.
"This piece is NOS (new old stock) that was made in the 1970s but never used - it is brand new vintage!"
About Copper - Copper is a pure elemental metal, CU on the periodic table. It is reddish brown and is soft enough so that it is malleable which means you can shape and bend it fairly easily. Copper oxidizes and darkens when it comes in contact with the air in the environment. There are many who swear by the health benefits of wearing copper (copper bracelet manufacturers) while others have the opposite viewpoint. Read more about copper . . .
