    Silver Bracelet EternalConnection

    Be the first one to wear a unique bracelet made of metals extracted from recycled mobile phones.

    Jewelry often has an emotional meaning. This bracelet not just represents a connection, rather it is a symbol of eternal connection. It’s a beautiful way to show someone that you love them. This bracelet could also be a reminder for you to stay true and connected to yourself. The total length of this bracelet is 18 cm. You can adjust this to a smaller size (16 cm).

    We believe in circularity. That’s why we make sure that for every piece of jewelry that we sell, our partner Closing the Loop can collect, ship, and responsibly recycle five waste phones from Africa. This way, these metals will be used for eternity!
