One last note:

They say that "imitation is the highest form of flattery" ...

Our Banded Berlin bracelets are one of a kind, we have put a lot of effort and care over the years in developing and creating this unique product for you. We have tremendous respect for all those who cultivate their own ideas, for those who create works of originality and authenticity.

Unfortunately, not everyone shares that same respect and have no moral issue with unethical imitation. These people lack inventiveness and have no problems making a profit from other people's hard work and creativity. In this new world approaching, those are the individuals who will be on the wrong side of history, people who cheat others for their own benefit and disregard what is right and what makes our society more harmonious.

To be sure of the utmost quality and authenticity, look for the banded stamp on the inside of your banded bracelet. Feel free to reach out to us if you have any other questions. - Ashely & Heike at Banded.
