Tubular or Hollow Bangles
Oh My Giddy Aunt's custom-made bangles are created using different methods depending on your style, weight and price preferences, resulting in solid bangles or tubular bangles. Sterling silver or solid 9ct or 18ct gold tubular bangles look the same as a solid bangle but they 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 shapes. Round tubular bangles are also known as Golf Bangles and will give you the biggest bangle possible and will need the most precious metal. A Oval shape bangle still provides the height without the width and because it doesn't require as much precious metal it will not cost as much. 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.
