Smaller charms adorn the single-stranded part of the bangle, while a large charm hangs in the double-stranded area. That large charm says “Sister” on the front and “Woven together by unbreakable bonds” on the back.

Independent lab findings support some of the claims, as do the anecdotal but glowing customer reviews.
