Tubular or Hollow Bangles
Sterling silver or solid 9ct or 18ct gold tubular bangles look the same as solid bangles but are hollow inside and not as heavy or expensive as a completely solid bangle.
Oh My Giddy Aunt's Tubular Bangles are made from all precious metal, they are not plated, and the gold or silver won't rub off.
The strength of the bangle is in the thickness of the 'tube' used to create the bangle and while they may pick up little dents along the way, worn appropriately they will still last a lifetime, or more, and any dents or bumps add to the bangle's story. Tubular bangles made from solid gold can also be recycled... should that time ever come.
Tubular Bangles can be made in ROUND or OVAL profiles and round or oval wrist shapes.
Round tubular bangles are also known as Golf Bangles and will give you the biggest bangle possible and need the most precious metal.
Oval shaped bangles still provides the height without the width and because they don't require as much precious metal to make, they cost a little less.
Round and Oval shaped bangles are picture together above and below to demonstrate the difference. The illustration of the cross sections of round and oval tubes also shows the shape of the bangle.
Oh My Giddy Aunt's solid gold tubular bangles are custom made to order by a family business of master jewellers who have been making bangles for over half a century.
