Each Aegis Style HeroBracelet® is a genuine original piece of art, meant to be worn proudly and handed down for generations. Each is individually cut, formed, hand-stamped, smoothed and polished when you order.
Our design is truly unique and a tribute to the one you love. They start as 1/4" thick solid copper bars. Because there are three sides, you can have them customized on each side, front, top and bottom- 35 characters per line.
Each bracelet carries a unique serial number and dated to the day it was made. No two will ever be exactly alike. Because this is a hand-made bracelet, expect unique character in everything, from the burnished finish on the metal to the individually hand stamped letters (Which may appear crooked or uneven- this is the design!) This is NOT cranked out by a computer and imported. This is hand-made right here in Austin, Texas!
FITTING YOUR LEGION HEROBRACELET®. The Aegis style HeroBracelet is made from heavy solid copper. It is 1/4" thick and 6 1/2" around. Because of the thickness of the copper, it's best to measure your wrist before ordering to insure a good fit. Generally, the opening on the bracelet is around 1 1/4" which should be just wide enough to get over your wrist. If you've got a larger or smaller wrist, let us know in your customer notes and we'll cut the bracelet to fit you properly. This is definitely a man's bracelet. Before we put them up on the site, we asked a lot of people to wear them and the guys all wanted one and the ladies all said it's too big and heavy. So know this up front (The sterling HeroBracelets may be ordered in a small size, and they are lovely for women).
COPPER FINISH: Legion Series HeroBracelets come in two finishes. You may choose to have your bracelet highly polished or left with a natural patina. It's the difference between a shiny, new copper penny and a well-worn penny the hue of darkened bronze. Eventually all copper will take on the natural patina, but once it's been polished, it's easy to keep it shiny with a polishing cloth or a little brass polish once in a while.
If you would prefer our patina finish- please message in the comment area and we will do our best to make an aged copper finish.)
You are welcome to customize your HeroBracelet with multiple names or personal messages. English characters only please, no icons, logos, symbols etc.
HOW YOU TYPE YOUR INFORMATION HERE IS HOW IT WILL APPEAR ON THE BRACELET. Because these are all hand stamped, each letter is upper case. Sales on custom bracelets are final.

"To Staff and volunteers at HeroBracelets:
I have had several memorial bracelets over the last 5 years. Everywhere I get them, they always look and fit great but they always wear out quickly and I continue to wear them anyways.
When I was looking to replace my recently retired bracelet I stumbled across your HeroBracelets website. I may have visited it before, I couldn't say whether I have or not. Previously, the cost for the custom copper may have deterred me. This time around I wanted a bracelet I wasn't going to have to replace. Cost was not an object this time. I looked at the sizes and designs on the website for about 3 days before deciding, reading everything over and over. My only concern was my OCD and the letters hand stamped on the custom Spartan Copper HeroBracelet, not being perfectly aligned and spaced. Regardless I went ahead with my order. Eight days later I went to my mailbox and there was my bracelet, faster than I expected too. As I opened the box and unwrapped the bracelet I was feeling a bit anxious of the appearance. The lettering, the size, the spacing. I couldn't be happier. It's perfectly imperfect. I'll never get another remembrance bracelet anywhere else. The addition of a hand written note just made it that much more personal and concrete. I cannot thank you enough for making sure my buddy is always displayed for all to see, appreciate and remember. Thank you for making it a special and meaningful process for me
