How do I know my ROPES bracelet is authentic?

Authentic ROPES bracelet have our signature state of Maine, ROPES charm.

How do I clean my bracelet?

We recommend Clorox wipes or just regular uncolored/unscented soap and water. Because all of the ROPES products are made from real, marine-grade ropes they are very durable, so don’t be afraid to put some elbow grease into it!

Please note, if you have a metallic bracelet you should never need to clean the metallic section, just the base rope and the hardware.

Can I put my bracelet in the dishwasher?

I do not recommend this.  Though The ROPES are very sturdy they are designed for waterfront use, not to withstand the heat and chemicals of dishwashers and dish soap.

How do I polish the hardware?

Having the hardware professionally polished by a jeweler is a great option. If you want to do it at home I recommend a standard brass cleaner.

Will my bracelet fade?

Just like a favorite pair of jeans, the bracelets will of course fade and age with time and wear. I personally love when mine get a little more worn-in looking; they tell a story and become uniquely yours.

Does Shana actually make the bracelets?

Yes! Though she does have help from the lovely members of The ROPES crew.
