The bracelet is cylindrical-shaped and made of silver. It is shaped and sized to fit the wrist of the woman wearing it. It is designed to be able to open and close with a manual locking system. There is a stick in one side of the bangle, which, when pulled out, opens the bangle in half. The bangle is then placed under the wrist and locks the wrist by inserting the stick back in place.
