Curiosities and general information

Copper bracelets are luminous jewels believed to have a positive influence on the health of the wearer. Already known at the time of the ancient Egyptians, they were in fact worn and known as beneficial and healing objects.

From an energetic point of view, these bracelets are believed to balance the psychophysical well-being of the person wearing them. In fact, it is believed that their appearance changes depending on the state of health of those who wear them on the wrist or ankle: brightness is therefore synonymous with good health while opacity would indicate a state of stress or infirmity.

The bracelets in 100% pure copper are universal jewelry, wearable by both men and women. They can be customized according to taste and are available online and in ethnic stores in a variety of shapes and colors. They are flexible and can be easily adapted to each person.

To clean these jewels and make them effective and beneficial again, simply wash them with cold water and dry them with a clean cloth. To eliminate the possible oxidation of the metal, simply soak the jewelry in a solution of vinegar and salt.

Health benefits

Copper, in contact with the skin, is believed to have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. In fact, bracelets made of this material, together with magnetic bracelets, are traditionally used to combat headaches and rheumatic disorders. Their effect, although not yet proven by official science, would be to relieve pain and swelling caused by joint inflammation and to avoid stiffness due to rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. Therefore, even when a subject suffers from such discomforts, his mobility is not totally compromised by the disease thanks to the effect of copper which, simply worn on the wrist, is able to release a sort of substance useful to reduce inflammation and consequent pain all over the body.

In this regard, some scholars claim that the copper of the bracelet is absorbed by the body through the so-called transdermal micronutrition (since copper is an excellent heat conductor) and, thanks to this process, the person benefits from it.

Even the absorption of copper through perspiration is considered more effective than the oral intake of a supplement; since in this way it enters directly into the bloodstream without having to pass through the liver, the preliminary metabolization process is avoided.

These bracelets would also seem useful in cases of tiredness and physical fatigue, as well as being able to strengthen the immune system’s defenses. Moreover, they would seem to promote muscle relaxation and prevent the onset of infections. Copper, in fact, was used since ancient times for its antibacterial properties, able to block and prevent the growth of bacteria, viruses and microorganisms. As the ancient papyri testify, in fact, copper was used to disinfect wounds and purify water.

Wearing these bracelets would also have positive results on the wellbeing of the psyche: that is, they would have the ability to reduce stress and promote sleep and relaxation. The two extremities of the bracelet, properly separated and kept at a distance from each other, would be able to channel positive energies towards the person and to push the negative ones away.

Copper itself is, in fact, an indispensable metal for the human body, for several reasons:

  • it promotes the functioning of metabolic processes;
  • it contributes to the formation and maintenance of the musculoskeletal system;
  • it is important for the development and maintenance of various organs, including: the heart and brain;
  • it influences the metabolism of cholesterol and glucose;
  • also plays an important role in the formation of red blood cells and the absorption of iron in the body;
  • it is very important both during pregnancy and during breastfeeding, as breast milk is not naturally rich in copper;
  • it contributes to increased immune defences;
  • hinders the development of free radicals


The alchemical principles want copper to be associated with the planet or the goddess Venus and, therefore, it represents the symbol of justice and love among living beings. Precisely for this reason many people argue that wearing a bracelet made of pure copper allows the individual to come into contact with nature and always feel balanced with it, with his own being and with the other beings who are part of it: whether they are men, animals or plants.

Copper promotes harmony between the physical and astral bodies, and is used to direct energy flows.

Finally, copper stimulates the activity of the Chakras, the vortices of energy that connect the body to the universe.


For the most skeptical it is impossible not to consider the fact that the beneficial effects of the copper bracelet have not been scientifically proven.

Moreover, the copper bracelet cannot be considered an alternative to medical treatment: if there are pathologies or particular deficiencies to be treated, it is absolutely necessary to arbitrarily suspend the use of drugs prescribed by your doctor; nor to neglect the fundamental importance of having an adequate diet or a healthy lifestyle, so as to provide the body with the right amount of all the substances that are vital for it.

Beyond the actual therapeutic validity of these jewels, therefore, their use is in any case safe and free of contraindications and side effects. They can therefore be appreciated and worn as elegant, oriental-looking accessories.

People who are allergic to copper may experience allergic reactions, especially on the skin.

There is also another case where you should avoid wearing the copper bracelet, i.e. when a person is suffering from Wilson’s disease, which is characterized by the accumulation of copper in the tissue. It should be pointed out that this is a very rare case.

Wearing a pure copper bracelet can cause an unpleasant but very easy to resolve unwanted effect, i.e. the wrist, or any other part of the skin that is in direct contact with metal, could turn green. This is due to the oxidation that copper naturally undergoes, especially when the skin secretes sweat. To solve this small inconvenience, however, just wash the part with soap and water.
