Embodying the expression "a diamond in the rough," this gem-studded bangle is made from metal salvaged from bombs dropped on Laos during the Vietnam War. Local artisans repurpose scrap aluminum into a sleek band that features a single ethically sourced diamond twinkling at the center. Add a phrase (up to 26 characters) to the inside for a unique, personalized touch. The creation of each piece supports the Laotian people's efforts to clear unwanted wartime waste from their homeland while providing them with a sustainable income. A dynamic mix of flowing curves and modern lines, this powerful bracelet displays the brilliant facets of fortitude. Comes in a drawstring pouch with a story card. Handmade in Laos and finished by Elizabeth Suda in Brooklyn, New York.
