About West Indian Bangles:
West Indian Bangles are a tradition of the Caribbean Islands. They were originally created through the unison of East Indian and African designs. West Indian Bangles are typically worn with other similar bracelets so they make noise by clinking together. Stylish and sleek, the gold bangle bracelets are skillfully carved and molded with intricate patterns, sated with mystifying tribal style. The patterns consist of seductive curves and jagged lines to which the eyes are drawn instantly. The tips are in the shape of a cocoa pod, which add up to the classic but robust appearance.
