The charm is a Kwan-yin (spellings vary), symbol of mercy, not a Buddha. With jade, this deep color tends to indicate it is artificially dyed, especially at this price, meaning it can fade over time and may even glow under black light.
OK just to let u know don't buy! My Buddha soon as I put it on came off! So sad! it was puke green not the color i was hoping. I know what color jade is because i have real jade!This is not jade!
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? no it was puke green!
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. crap
- How accurate was the sizing? too small
loved the bracelet but it was way too small and cut off the circulation in my hand...and I have small wrists...and broke on about the third day as i was putting it on. Still finding beads and spacers on the floor! Going to put it back together but what a pain!!!
I've been looking for a jade bracelet to wear as a simple accent piece for casual and semi dressy functions and this little item does the trick. i have received nice complements on it. Some have asked where I got it and I always say I got at the "O" of course.
I've only had this bracelet for a week but so far, the piece seems well made and sturdy. I was afraid that the elastic would break easily but I've worn every day so far and no troubles, have had no trouble typing with the bracelet on, like another reviewer reported. (you just need a wrist-rest). Definitely for smaller wrists though.
I was hesitant to order a bracelet because they have a tendency to be too big on me, but this one fits very well.The color is lighter than it looks in the pictures (at least on my monitor) but is still a beautiful shade of green. I get compliments on this every time I wear it and have been told that it's very unique. I will say that it's a little uncomfortable to wear at the office; the beads are very round and making typing a little difficult, and the Buddha charm makes a lot of noise when it hits my desk--much better for weekend wear.
