Radiant and glowing, these braided bracelets are temple bracelets from Thailand. They are filled with the gold flake that is used on the Buddhas outside temples. Just like the Buddhas, these might change color over time with wear. * Bangles are waterproof, comfortable, and quiet. * These exact bracelets have been blessed by a Buddhist monk for peace, love, understanding, and good health. Please see our video for the blessing. * Each bangle is made up of multiple tubes that are braided in a single or double braid. * Roll on easily, but you want them to be snug going on so they aren't too big on your arm; if they are snug, use some soapy water or lotion.
