Once you start to wear a magnetic bracelet and realize that it is having a positive influence on your health and wellbeing you naturally want it to last as long as possible but how long do magnetic bracelets last? This is an important question when you buy a product that you are less familiar with. Should you expect it to last as long as your watch or longer? The answer to this question depends a lot on what specific type of magnetic bracelet that you get and how you wear it.Wear and Tear
Even if you get a magnetic bracelet made out of tungsten, it wears and tears to some extent. It is true that metals like titanium and tungsten carbide can stay intact forever but in a magnetic bracelet you have to remember that the magnets are inclusions and the clasps and links might be of another metal and structure. If you use your hands a lot and work physically your bracelet could wear and tear faster and if you got a softer metal this will show in the shape of dents and scratches. Even so, you can make the bracelet last longer by regular clean ups where you remove dirt and scratches to make it stay pretty and effective.A Fashion Statement
A magnetic bracelet is not only an investment for your health. You are also wearing it as jewelry to match with your outfits and other accessories. There are styles of magnetic bracelets that are designed to look good with most clothing and other jewelry but you could get fed up by wearing the same link day out and day in. The bracelet keeps its shape for years but you want a new style so for this reason you get a new one to update your fashion statement with. The old one will await a revival period in your jewelry box!The Strength of the Magnets
If you get a bracelet with permanent magnets it won’t lose its effect even if you wear it till your last breath. High quality neodymium magnets don’t lose their strength the way many other magnets can do. Studies have shown that bracelets with this type of magnet lose about 1% of their strength every 10th year. This means that it will stay effective for as long as you need it, especially when you get the bracelets with magnets of 1,000-3,500 Gauss.
You can expect a quality magnetic bracelet to last for at least a few decades. If you wear it normally and keep it clean it will be one of your dearest accessories that never let you down. Just make sure to get the real deal and be picky about the materials. Sporty people need to get metals that can handle rough wear and tear. If you get a bracelet with inclusions like crystals or special patterns of gold you should wear it like fine jewelry and not bang it around the tennis court!
