Shipping to United States: Free

Here’s a personalized bracelet with 3 turns of leather rope and a 8mm (5/16 inch) wide silver plate. Each component of this bracelet is assembled in my studio to create a unique and custom bracelet.

This bracelet can be used as a «Medic-Alert», to inform paramedic of your medical condition in case of emergency. It is also important to indicate any severe allergy. I can also engrave a personal message or coordinates in longitude-latitude.

The cordon is made of natural braided leather, available in multiple colors. The leather cord on this model makes 3 turns around the wrist.

All metal components are made of solid sterling silver (925). The silver plate is handcrafted and sewn to the rope with a strong cotton wire.

You have 4 choices of clasp.

Choose your clasp type:

A : Large magnetic clasp with 4 pins to hold it. Very easy to put on or remove alone and still hold on very well for every day wear. Base metal silver plated.

B : Small magnetic clasp with a crew cylinder over. Very strong clasp, small and comfortable. This is the best clasp I recommend for someone that will wear the bracelet non-stop every day. Made of solid sterling silver.

C : Adjustable chain with lobster clasp. Best choice if you are not sure about the size; they come with 1 inch of adjustment. The extra chain can always be cut with cutters. All components are made of solid sterling silver.

D: The S shape hook clasp. This one is more elegant and easy to put on. Made of solid sterling silver.


This bracelet is available with a high polished finish (shiny) or a satin matte finish (brushed) as showed on the 4th picture of the listing.


The braided leather cord is available in different colours, see color chart.

Spectra Rope diameter: 4 mm (1/8 inch)

*Since each bracelet is made individually, yours might be just a little different.


You can personalize your bracelet with an engraving. I can engrave a name, a small message, a medic-alert or a location in longitude-latitude coordinates.

You can now choose from 4 different fonts for your text!
Here’s the number of characters that can fit according to the font. THIS IS AN APPROXIMATION and may be different depending on your text.

Max 12 characters

Max 24 characters

I can engrave pretty much any common punctuation, as listed of the picture above. In some case I may have two types of stamps for the same punctuation, if nothing is specified I will choose the one that I think will look best with the font you choose.

YOU MUST SPECIFY THE FONT YOU WANT; otherwise I will use the same as on the main picture of the listing.
Please understand that each letter is stamped separately and might not be perfectly straight, just like the rings showed on this listing.

There are many phone app available for this purpose, or from a computer go to:

Decimal: 45.457996 N • 74.091446 W
Time Format: 45° 27’ 30.37’’N • 074° 5’ 27.89’’ W

Negative (-) coordinates are South or West longitude/latitude. If you write the coordinates with N S E or W letters you don’t need to add the negative symbol ( - ).
You can use ( * ) for ( ° ) symbol I will understand. Between coordinates I usually put a centered dot ( • ), if nothing else is specified I will include it.

→I WILL ENGRAVE THE COORDINATES THE WAY YOU WRITE THEM TO ME IN THE «MESSAGE TO SELLER», unless you specify anything else. If you can’t figure out how to write the coordinates let me know and I will help you :)

You can add a symbol to your text. Just write to me the symbol between parentheses:

Personalize even more your bracelet with a secret message at the back for an extra 5$CAD! Just purchase this listing when buying your bracelet and specify what you want to engrave to the front and to the back in the «message to seller».


I can make this bracelet in 6 different unisex sizes, from X-Small to XX-Large:

X-SMALL : 6 inch (15.25 cm)
SMALL : 6 ½ inch (16.5 cm)
MEDIUM : 7 inch (17.75 cm)
LARGE : 7 ½ inch (19 cm)
X-LARGE : 8 inch (20.3 cm)
XX-LARGE : 8 ½ inch (21.6 cm)

These length are the inside circumference of the bracelets, not the total length.

→To know your size, I recommend you to measure your wrist with a flexible measuring tape or a band of paper, just over your wrist bone. Make sure you can place two fingers between the measuring tape and your wrist to make sure the bracelet will be comfortable.

If the bracelet is for a gift, know that the average bracelet size for a woman is 7 inch (MEDIUM) and 7 1/2 inch for a man (LARGE).

If the bracelet is not the good length I will exchange it with no charges, you just pay the additional shipping fees.

Frequently Asked Questions

Sizing details

Visit this listing to learn more about ring size:

If you order a ring but the size doesn’t fit, it is always possible to make a ring size adjustment.
You can visit your local jewelry shop to have them resize your ring, or you can send it back to us for a re-size. Charges may apply; shipping is at your charges.

Care instructions

Sterling silver can go yellow or tarnish with time, it is a normal phenomenon when exposed to air. The best way to maintain your jewels clean is to wear them! It will protect their shine and some daily precautions will keep them beautiful and clean longer! Since most of my sterling silver jewellery is already oxidised you shouldn’t need to do anything special to keep them the way they are.

I always include silver care information with the package.

Wholesale availability

I do accept wholesale, please contact me for more information.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Every item is delivered in a gift pouch or jewelry box. I do not include invoice since they can be printed from your account, except for France and Germany.

It is possible to return an item for a size adjustment. You don’t need to communicate with me before you return it, but you must include the following information with the return: ORDER NUMBER, NEW SIZE and RETURN ADDRESS.

Once I receive the package I will send a separate invoice for shipping and size adjustment fee. The fee will vary from 0 to 25% of the item value, because in some case I need to completely re-do the item.
