Here at DEMI+CO we are always exploring the benefits of our jewellery particularly copper bangles. We are always gathering the latest information, studies and feedback from customers to ensure that we are keeping on top of everything and we like sharing that knowledge and information with our customers too.

Our collection of copper bangles is constantly growing and we are adding to it on a continuous basis. Our copper collection is one of our best sellers and copper bracelets have been worn for centuries showing that there are positive long term benefits too. Copper is remarkably similar to gold and silver; it has the same levels of purity and all three metals in their purest form are incredibly soft and malleable. Silver, copper and gold are mixed with other metals to make them stronger and more robust.

We hope you find the article below useful, do feel free to have a browse through some of our most frequently asked questions as well as a peek at our best selling ladies copper bracelets and mens copper bangles too.

 

What does wearing copper bracelets do?

We will start with the basics. Copper magnetic bracelets are often worn to help ease the aches and pains associated with arthritis, or other conditions that can give you stiff and sore joints. Unfortunately, studies and research on the effects of wearing an arthritis bangle are limited and it would be very helpful to have data to back up the claims, but many of our loyal customers return to us for more of our copper jewellery, and they continue to tell us about how wearing one of our magnetic bracelets for arthritis has made their conditions more bearable, how they have helped to improve their joints and stiffness, and have importantly reduced the pain they had been feeling beforehand.

 

Copper history

Copper has been around for many years, and it has been used for its healing powers for many centuries. Copper is a natural element and can help with a number of health issues. Studies have shown that traces of copper can be absorbed into the body by wearing copper jewellery.

  • 8700 B.C - A copper pendant discovered in what is now northern Iraq
  • 6000 BC - copper axe and arrow heads begin to replace flint equivalents; they were harder and stronger.
  • 3000 B.C.- Silver and lead were being used and the alloying of copper had begun, first with arsenic and then with tin.
  • For many centuries, bronze reigned supreme, being used for plows, tools of all kinds, weapons, armour and decorative objects.

  2. Skin health: Copper is known for its antimicrobial properties, and wearing copper bangles is believed to have a positive effect on the skin. Some people claim that it can help improve skin conditions like acne, eczema, and psoriasis.
  3. Copper absorption: Another belief is that wearing copper bangles allows trace amounts of copper to be absorbed through the skin. Copper is an essential mineral for the body, and proponents of copper bangles suggest that this absorption can help supplement any copper deficiencies.

 

How can you tell if a copper bracelet is real?

Real copper or pure copper should have a reddish, goldish brow colour like a penny. If your jewellery has any undertones of yellow, orange-yellow or grey or silver then the metal may not be pure copper you may be dealing with brass, or pewter.

  2. Skin staining: Wearing copper bangles can sometimes cause temporary skin discoloration or staining, especially if the bangles are not properly cleaned or if sweat accumulates under them. However, this staining is usually harmless and can be easily washed off.
  3. Lack of scientific evidence: While there are claims about the therapeutic benefits of copper bangles, scientific research supporting these claims is limited. The effectiveness of copper bangles in providing specific health benefits may vary among individuals.
  4. Inconvenience: Copper bangles can be rigid and may interfere with certain activities, especially if they are too tight or restrictive. They can create discomfort or limit hand and wrist movements for some individuals.
  5. Maintenance: Copper bangles require regular cleaning to maintain their appearance and prevent tarnishing. This may involve polishing or using specific cleaning agents to remove tarnish or stains.

Scientific studies:

Copper bangles:

A small randomized controlled trial published in the journal PLOS ONE in 2013 examined the effects of copper bracelets on rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. The study found that wearing copper bracelets did not have a significant impact on pain, inflammation, or physical function compared to a placebo bracelet.

A study published in the journal Current Therapeutic Research in 2017 investigated the effects of copper-infused fabrics on hand osteoarthritis. The results showed no significant improvements in pain or hand function compared to a control group wearing a non-copper-infused fabric.

 

Do you sleep with copper bracelet?

Wearing the bracelet for two hours each evening, for example, means that there is little to no chance for any copper absorption to take place. Wearing it at all times means even wearing it to bed and in the shower, or while washing the dishes

 

Should you sleep with a bangle on?

Yes, you can and should sleep with your copper bangle on if you are comfortable. If you have a fashion jewellery item on then it is not recommended but again this is a personal choice. Jewellery can withstand a certain amount of wear and tear but it depends on what metal your jewellery is made from.

 mens arthritis bracelet

Scientific studies:

Magnetic therapy:

A systematic review published in the journal Arthritis & Rheumatism in 2007 analyzed several randomized controlled trials on magnetic therapy for osteoarthritis of the knee and hip. The review concluded that the overall evidence was inconsistent and of low quality, with some studies reporting modest improvements in pain and function, while others showed no significant effects compared to sham treatments.

Another systematic review published in the journal Pain Medicine in 2013 assessed the effectiveness of static magnets for pain relief in various conditions. The review concluded that the evidence was limited and conflicting, with some studies suggesting potential benefits, but overall, the quality of the evidence was low.

 

Can I wear a copper bracelet everyday?

Yes, you can wear a copper bracelet every day, ensure it is not too tight and that circulation can still flow around. Also ensure that you take it off every so often to air it, clean and dry it. Any greenish residue is also normal and will wash off your skin this is just normal oxidation of the bracelet.
