The Nepalese Cord Copper Magnetic Bracelet from Sergio Lub is inspired by an ancient Himalayan design explained by a Tibetan master craftsman as having been used to identify those seeking a higher spiritual awareness, this piece represents the spirit (silver) embracing the body (copper) while entwined with the mind (golden). In 1999 Sergio had the honor of gifting this bracelet to the Dalai Lama.

Sergio Lub bracelets are individually handcrafted in Sergio Lub's Northern California Studio. The bracelets are adjustable and designed to be worn continuously, aging gracefully as they last for years.
Many of our bracelets have complex combinations of separate metal pieces. To ensure our designs withstand the stresses and strain of wearing all day we use silver solder to carefully join the metals together. Soldering several metals together into the same piece of jewelry requires delicate precision, and with practice one learns how to understand the different temperatures of each metal, by reading their glow as they are heated with a torch.
Each of the magnetic bracelets contains two powerful Rare Earth Magnets; one at each bracelet tip, carefully positioned to be worn over the wrist’s pressure points. Research has shown that magnetic fields influence biological systems, believed to attract and repel charged particles in the blood stream increasing circulation, stimulate tissue regeneration and reduce pain. In 1954, Dr. Linus Pauling, received a Nobel Prize for his discovery of the magnetic properties of hemoglobin. Pauling found that iron, and many electrolytic salts in our blood, circulate bio-magnetically. Therefore, the proximity of a magnetic field may result in an acceleration of circulation and the transfer of energy to all areas of the body.
Chinese doctors have believed for millennia that a magnetic field, when next to the body, could markedly increase the wearer’s vital life force, known as ‘Chi’. The observed benefits were found to increase with the magnets’ proximity to acupressure points. We carefully place magnets in our bracelets near two important pressure points of the wrist.
Care & Maintenance:
The bracelets are made to be worn at all times, in nearly all places.
To keep your bracelet clean, we recommend wearing it in the shower, and using a simple jeweler’s polishing cloth when necessary to restore its shine.
We only use solid metals, so there is no plating to chip or wear off. Therefore any scratch or blemish you may acquire, can be buffed out with a simple polishing cloth, or by rubbing a lemon juice baking soda composit.
With this minimal care your bracelets should age gracefully with you and last for generations.
