In general, I'm happy to spend some extra money for fair trade items. I love "worldstock" or whatever it's called because I like hearing the artisan's story and aspirations. I like to know that there are no blood or tears shed over what I'm wearing and that's worth the price I paid. However, if this was made in the states I would never buy it for that money. While this is a beautiful bracelet, I know I can't take it to the beach. I know I can't let my hand land too hard on something. I know it won't last forever. If that's the kind of piece you want, I wouldn't buy this. The materials simply aren't made to last. I'm happy now, so happy (it's so goshdarned beautiful!), but i know it won't be for long.
- Did the color match the color displayed onsite? The stones are actually a bit of a purplish gray but they look brown from afar
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Worth about 1/4 of the price based on the materials used
- How accurate was the sizing? It is a bit too large for my wrist, but I decided I liked some extra movement
