Banx Bracelet


Recently, my dog Banx (& our company mascot LOL) was run over by a golf cart, breaking his back right leg in 2 places. It has been a nightmare trying to get him proper care! After the pandemic was declared back in March 2020, approx. 12.6 MILLION households got new pets last year; this has put a TREMENDOUS strain on the vet industry and it shows: vets are double-triple-booked, at max capacity, and there’s simply just not enough doctors to go around. We have been turned away at ER after ER, animal hospital after animal hospital, and even from our primary vet because they simply just cannot take another animal in.

Due to the nature of his break and this significant delay in care, his leg has not healed one bit in his splint thus far and is going to need surgery to heal properly. While orthopedic surgery is the most effective form of surgery to correct a canine with a bone injury or joint condition, it is also costly and requires a lengthy recovery and rehabilitation period following surgery, further adding to the already astronomical initial costs.

To help support his procedure & post-op recovery, we created the Banx Bracelet in his honor. Made with 14K Gold-Filled beads and genuine Tiger’s Eye gemstones, this bracelet not only resembles his beautiful dapple coat, but these powerful gemstones have substantial healing properties and remind us to be steadfast during challenging times, but move forward with conviction & willful intent.

Thank you for your purchase of the Banx Bracelet and all your support of our journey these last couple years.

With endless gratitude & appreciation,

How to Determine Bracelet Sizing

Wrist Sizing Guide
Baby (4.5 inches)
Toddler (5 inches)
Kid (5.5 inches)
X-Small (6 inches)
Small (6.5 inches)
Medium (7 inches)
Large (7.5 inches)

Hot Tips

  • Order at least a 1/2 inch larger than your wrist size for a comfortable fit for stretch-style bracelets.
  • If you are stacking several bracelets, think about ordering them in differing sizes so they stack nicely together up your wrist, rather than bunching on top of each other.
  • Almost any stretch-style bracelet can be made in the above sizes listed; if you would like a size from above that isn't shown on a particular product, select size 'Other' and write the desired size in the box provided. For example: an "adult" bracelet only lists sizes Small, Medium, and Large, but you want it made for your toddler, select size 'Other' and type in 'Toddler' in the provided box.
  • You can also write the specific desired wrist length in the 'Other' box for alternative sizing if the option you want is not listed.
  • Sizing for all clasp-style bracelets is listed in every product description. Most clasp-style bracelets are adjustable from 6 to 8 inches.
  • All anklets are made to fit the average ankle size, adjustable from 9 to 11 inches. Again, specific sizing information is listed in every product description.

Materials and Care Info - Heading

J. Sterling Jewelry is a bridge jewelry collection made from high-quality precious and semiprecious metals & materials. All items are hypoallergenic and lead & nickel free. Each product will have the specific materials of that item listed in the description. All of our gold (including rose gold) items are either 14K Gold-Filled or Gold Vermeil. All of our silver items are .925 Sterling Silver. See below for more information regarding each of these materials & for how to best care for your J. Sterling jewels & keep them looking great for years to come!

14k Gold-FilledGold-Filled metals are made by permanently heat-bonding a layer of 14K gold to an alloy/base metal core. Gold-Filled has 100 times the amount of 14K gold as plated jewelry. It is strong, durable, and resistant to tarnish – it will not flake off. This is true for both our yellow gold-filled & rose gold-filled products. Gold-Filled jewelry is legally required to be at least 5% or 1/20 gold by weight. This 5% is described by the karatage of the gold alloy on the surface. Most gold-filled material is 12K or 14K Gold-Filled. At J. Sterling Jewelry we don't use any Gold-Filled materials below 14K.
CARE: Wipe down your 14K Gold-Filled jewels regularly with a soft, dry cloth. Although 14K Gold-Filled jewelry is tarnish-resistant, it will still get dirty. The oils from your skin transfer to the metal and need to be washed off periodically. The easiest way to clean your Gold-Filled jewels is to lightly scrub it with an old soft toothbrush and lukewarm water. If you must use soap, use a mild shampoo or dish soap. Rinse well, pat dry, and air dry. Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing!
Sterling Silver.925 Sterling Silver is an alloy made of 92.5% pure silver and 7.5% copper (the copper is added to strengthen the metal so it is more durable than pure silver). Some of our Sterling Silver pieces may also be plated with rhodium, to give it extra shine and durability. Rhodium is one of the costliest precious metals due to its rarity. Oxidation is a naturally occurring reaction of the metal alloy and common elements in the air and water that surround us. All Sterling Silver will need to be cleaned periodically to remove this discoloring. At J. Sterling Jewelry we prefer to use .925 Sterling Silver for our silver items.
CARE: Wipe down your Sterling Silver jewels regularly with a soft, dry cloth. Sterling Silver can be sensitive to water, however the natural oils in your skin help to coat the silver and slow down the oxidation process, so it’s a great excuse to wear your jewels often! To best care for your Sterling Silver, clean your jewelry after each time you wear it to keep the tarnish, dirt, and oil buildup to a minimum. If it’s necessary for a deeper clean, polish your Sterling Silver with a paste of baking soda and water and a soft toothbrush in the palm of your hand. Rinse well and pat dry with a clean cloth. If your Sterling Silver is extremely tarnished, it can be covered in this baking soda paste and left overnight. The next morning, rinse well, use a soft toothbrush to get all the paste off, pat dry with a clean cloth, and let air dry. Make sure your jewelry is completely dry before storing. To prevent tarnishing between wearing, be sure to store your jewelry in a closed bag/box to slow the oxidation process & limit its exposure to air.          

Best practices to get the most out of your J. Sterling jewels:

  • To keep your jewelry clean, wipe down regularly with a dry, soft cloth.
  • Never use jewelry cleaner on your J. Sterling Jewelry.
  • Store your jewels in your J. Sterling jewelry pouch or inside an airtight box to avoid oxidation when not in use.
  • For stretch bracelets: gently roll off your wrist to limit overstretching & remove when sleeping to avoid any unnecessary tugging that may occur. All elastic is pre-stretched to help prevent any stretch-out, however, this is a best-practice to limit wear & tear over time. While the elastic used in the bracelets is professional grade, the elastic and the coloring on the plastic letter beads are subject to fading & degradation over time.
  • Expose to liquids at your own discretion, though we recommend removing your jewelry before exposing to any moisture, exercising, showering, swimming, etc. to simply get the most wear out of your jewels that you possibly can.
  • Limit exposure to chemicals such as perfume, hairspray, and other harsh detergents.
  • With proper care, your J. Sterling jewels can last for years to come! J. Sterling Jewelry is not liable for any damage to your jewels as a result of your own improper care.
