This is a beautiful bracelet and like other reviewers have noted, it's heavy and the workmanship is very nice. That said, I really wish that Overstock would start posting pictures of people actually wearing the jewelry. I have a very small wrist-- circumference is only about 5.75", so this bracelet is HUGE on me. Plus, to me it doesn't look nearly as art deco as I had hoped-- it's very romantic though. It's still very nice and I still like it enough to keep it, but I would have liked to have the extra information.
This really is an exquisite piece of jewelry. While perfectly styled for today's fashionistas, you can't help but feel you're wearing something from 100 years ago. Lilies of the Valley were my grandmother's favorite flowers. When I saw this I knew I had to have it; to pay homage to my gramma. It is more beautiful on your wrist than any picture can do justice to it. You have to have it.
This bracelet is stunning to say the least! The pearls have a rich patina to them that bring out the little lilies while the enameled sheen of the green leaves glisten making the bracelet antique in appearance. I have a large wrist and was a bit concerned that the bracelet might be too small, but it is a generous size. My wrist is 6 5/8-inches and the inside dimensions of my closed bracelet is over 7 1/8-inches (almost 7 1/4). It is a fairly heavy bracelet so someone with a very small wrist needs to keep that in mind before purchasing it. With that said, I love it. May is my birth month and Lily-of-the-Valley is the flower for May. My husband gave me the bracelet and matching earrings for a birthday present. It made a lovely, romantic gift.
NICE PIECE, BUT, NOT TO WEAR EVERY DAY. LOVE THE STYLE

Did you ever buy a gift for a friend and want to keep it? I just did. Now think about the movie Somewhere in Time and youll be in the best place for your imagination to capture the essence of this treasure. The bracelet is unique, with exceptional coloring. The quality of its craftsmanship is evident. No doubt youll feel proud to wear this adornment. Its substantial but light enough for wearing comfortably. The price is right for high end costume jewelry. Sweet Romance stands the test of time as I have other pieces by this company that look brand new these many years later. Be prepared to magically fall in love with this feminine bobble. Now go look for the matching earrings!
Sweet Romance jewelry is expensive for costume jewelry BUT it is worth every penny ---( and with Overstock's great prices; it'll cost you even less pennies! ) This bracelet is unusual & retro & vintage-looking. Beautifully, wonderfully made too. A " must have " for any jewelry box. *****FIVE (very enthusiastic) STARS !!
Even better than I expected. As others have said, the workmanship is beautiful and the quality excellent. It has nice weight to it, the enameling is very well done and the pearls are a lovely color. I also purchased the earrings--they are particularly pretty with dainty pearls that dangle from side of the piece. So flattering to the ear! I purchased these for my 50th birthday and also because the flower for May is lily of the valley. The flowers grew next to an old Victorian house I was raised in, so these pieces bring back happy memories!
The craftmanship of this bracelet is very fine, color of the pearls is just right and the enamelled leaves curve beautifully along the bracelet. I bought this as a gift because lilies of the valley have a special significance for our family...the recipient loved it and I was more than pleased with the purchase. Thanks, Overstock!
I absolutely love this bracelet. I am fascinated by Art Nouveau/Art Deco styles and always interested in finding new examples in jewelry pieces. As other rewievers have stated, this is a very well made piece and very unusual. Just wanted to add that the pearls are of cocoa color, not white as they appear on the picture. Highly recommended.
