Very interesting bracelet. I get compliments on it every time I wear it, but it is difficult to wear as it is stiff and will "pop" off as the clasp is not very functional. I end up putting a small pin under the clasp to protect it from falling off. A good piece to wear in a controlled environment, like a small dinner party or theater. The colors are very pretty and it has a crafted handmade look.

These are beautiful earrings & bigger than they look in the picture. I was afraid they would be too small but they are a very nice size and look like antique earrings. The color of the garnets are very nice without being too dark and have a lot of sparkle. The weight is just right, not too heavy & not too light. The carving workmanship on the wings is great and I will love wearing these with a garnet butterfly pendant/pin I already have. So glad I got these for Valentines Day.

I have had this necklace/brooch for a year now, I am just as in love with it today as I was the day it came! I wear it as a necklace (got a different chain, I wasnt a fan on the one that comes with it), pin it to dresses, and pin it in my hair. I have gotten many compliments on it and people think its neat that it is a real orchid. It looks so much better in person!!

The necklace was just as beautiful in person as in the photo. Came in a lovely box with a little pillow which I pinned the necklace to for a nice presentation.

Out of sheer panic, I went to Overstock.com when all other avenues were exhausted while shopping for my wedding jewelry. I stumbled upon this and was in love. It was beautiful yet whimsical and elegant. It arrived quickly in this beautiful box with the bracelet wrapped around a pillow. It was loose, but we were able to safety pin this tight enough so that it would stop twisting and hanging underneath my wrist, but this bracelet is absolutely my favorite part of my wedding jewelry - I can't stop looking at it in pictures! It's so pretty and the legs that stick out are magical. I really can't say enough - the price was amazing and I would absolutely buy from this artist for an event even as big as a wedding. This artist is incredibly talented.

I have gotten many pieces from worldstock, mostly jewelry, and have NEVER been disappointed. I do hope that the people involved in the making of these beauties gets this message. Because they are white & go w/ almost everything I wear them a lot! The only problem I've had is falling asleep w/them on. They are on a pin, so they do bend - but that's my fault cause I know this happens. So there is nothing but good things to say about my moonstone dangling earrings. And thank you, Overstock for carrying this wonderful project.

These were a gift for an avid bicyclist. She absolutely loved them. Another friend had bought the pin for her and I bought the earrings neither of us knowing what the other had done. So, she wound up with the perfect set. I thought these were much nicer in person than they appear on the screen. I would recommend them.

This is an enhancer and the only reason for four stars is, there is no gard on the enhancer closure.It works like a hook catch over a pin. Not as secure as I would like. That said, the silverwork is excellent, and the stones have deep saturated colors. They are clear and bright. ;)

I bought this for my granddaughter as a birthday present. I expected a nice necklace however, it is so beautiful and delicate, I cant wait to give it to her. I had previously purchased the pin and was thrilled with that too. That is what prompted me to buy this and I am so glad I did. I would suggest to anyone interested in this style, not to hesitate. Its worth every cent.

These are absolutely adorable. I bought them for a bicycling enthusiast for her birthday. Now I see there's a pin that goes along with them, might have to get that too!

I ordered this item about a month ago. I actually purchased it to wear with my dress on my wedding day. I am very glad I chose this piece of jewelry - it is absolutely exquisite! The color is really vivid, and it has a very delicate feel to it. It is a bit smaller than what I had expected, but I was actually happy about that. I'd say the flower itself measures about 1". Because of how unique it is, any bigger and it might be overpowering. The fact that it is made from a real orchid is a great conversation piece. It is an absolutely stunning piece of jewelry! My only complaint is that it took so long to arrive. It was a little over three weeks from the time I placed the order to the time I received it. I understand that it was coming from Thailand but if I'd ordered it any closer to the big day it wouldn't have been here in time. Be sure that if you order any of these orchid products, you allow at least 3-4 weeks for arrival. Once you receive it though, you won't be disappointed! On a side note, my mother purchased two of the stick pins to give out to grandmothers. While they are gorgeous too, they are also quite a bit larger than the necklace. They are also an excellent buy if you are interested in any of this jewelry. My only fear with this necklace is that it seems very brittle. I'm not afraid that normal handling will damage it, but because of the type of orchid it is made from (it has the center tongue that sticks out a little) I'm worried I will be clumsy with it and break the tongue off. With a little care, though, it should be fine. I would very highly recommend this product to anyone. It makes either a great gift or a great addition to anyone's jewelry collection. I'm going to look into purchasing some of the other similar styles as well. You'd be a fool to pass this up!!

I gave these to my daughter for Christmas with matching pin. As she just started being a working mother, these came in handy. She likes them.

Just got my necklace as a gift. Very poor quality--the pin/clasp in back shows thru the flower. The "gold" chain looks more orange and worth about a nickel. Not as pictured--may be handmade, but not beautifully! Very cheap looking--would not buy for anyone.

I was lucky enough to get this gift for Christmas from my boyfriend. I loved it so much because it is a real, preserved orchid. I get so many compliments on how beautiful and unique this item is. It can be worn as a lapel pin or a necklace.

These are GORGEOUS earrings--beautiful stones, beautiful craftsmanship. But they are HUGE. BROOCH size. Too big for me, although I'd snap them up in a minute if they were a pin or restyle into some sort of bracelet.

Purchased this to wear on my wedding with the Pearl and Glass 'White Pearl Bouquet' Necklace (4-8 mm) . These are big pieces yet the crystals are subtle and add just the right amount of sparkle. Because my gown was of a classically simple design really balanced this piece and it was truly beautiful Great value for the price and the photograph does not do it justice. The bracelet wire is covered with many bugle beads, which I had not noticed in the picure.......it was so much more beautiful in person. Not wanting to wear a veil, I also got the flower earrings and had them converted to hair pins to complete the look........Even my hard to please sister was impressed. They look much more expensive pieces, great value.

These earrings actually look better in person. In the picture it looks like the bottom is just a loop of wire but it is actually flat like the head of a pin. I bought the earrings and matching necklace and wanted to get another necklace as a gift. The necklace was out of stock so I got the earrings as a gift. The recipient loved them

First time I wore this it unraveled. I have to use a safety pin to keep it latched. I'm sure it will keep unraveling and I will end up with a ball of twine. It's itchy. Bad buy.

I loved this except for the fact that the metal that shows (small decorative leaves and ends of pins that rocks are on and the clasp) is a weird color so that made the whole necklace look cheap. I loved the stones and the braided leather on one side look. The beads were strung pretty tight, so they didn't lay smoothly also. I sent it back.

The positive aspect of this bracelet is that it is truly lovely in person. It had been sold out for a long time, I was not disappointed with it when I got it. It was well worth the wait. The negative side is as in previous reviews, that it will need to go to the jewelers. The clasp opened up on mine as well. Also, although the craftsmanship appears well done, one pin in a link started to come out after wearing it a half dozen times. Even though I have to bring it in for the aforementioned fixes, it still comes in well under the price I would expect to pay for this beautiful bracelet.
