Bracelet is (thankfully) very flexibile, making it ideal for adjusting to different size wrists. My wrists are very thin and this bracelet conforms beautifully to the shape of my wrist without dangling around and banging off of things. A very cool piece, I get many, many compliments on this one! To the reviewer who wished for a translation: "It is very good to recite the mantra Om mani padme hum, but while you are doing it, you should be thinking on its meaning, for the meaning of the six syllables is great and vast... The first, Om [...] symbolizes the practitioner's impure body, speech, and mind; it also symbolizes the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha[...]" "The path is indicated by the next four syllables. Mani, meaning jewel, symbolizes the factors of method: (the) altruistic intention to become enlightened, compassion, and love.[...]" "The two syllables, padme, meaning lotus, symbolize wisdom[...]" "Purity must be achieved by an indivisible unity of method and wisdom, symbolized by the final syllable hum, which indicates indivisibility[...]" "Thus the six syllables, om mani padme hum, mean that in dependence on the practice of a path which is an indivisible union of method and wisdom, you can transform your impure body, speech, and mind into the pure exalted body, speech, and mind of a Buddha[...]" -- H.H. Tenzin Gyatso, 14th Dalai Lama, "Om Mani Padme Hum"
I purchased the bracelet and the matching ring. I loved both pieces. The lettering is actually done in a brass metal over the 925 silver and when you polish the jewelry w/ a cleaning cloth the brass appears like a rose-gold color;beautiful contrast to the silver. The pieces actually looked much better after polishing;prefered the rose gold color to the "not-so-gold-looking" lettering that you see when you open your package. The pieces are very durable;have been wearing for 2-3 weeks w/o any problems. I would definitely recommend these items to others that are interested in purchasing beautiful jewelry that is different in appearance w/ meaning/symbolism. You dont have to pay thousands to have beautiful jewelry that everyone will notice/compliment you on. LOVE IT!!!!!!!
This bracelet was purchased to match the ring I bought from Overstock almost 4 months ago, in which I love. The bracelet is very pretty, but very flimsy. You have to be very careful when you wear it because it bends out of shape very quickly. It¿s not good for everyday wear.
I saw this picture and thought it was so beautiful and when I received the item I still felt that way my wrist is small and I liked how the prongs at the end adjust a little if you want to fit it to your wrist I received a lot of complements what I didn't like was the poor quality of the bracelet first it tarnished completely then it broke in two I would have given it 5 stars still if it weren't for the price it should be about $10 for the quality of it.
I absolutely love this bracelet. It expresses everything I stand for. However, after wearing it for a day, my wrist was itching terribly and had a rash. I am allergic to metals that are not pure. I do recommend this bracelet, but I will have to try to affix a fabric to the inside to wear it comfortably. Beatifully made....just not a pure metal.
This is the 2nd one I have ordered - still loving the first one after 2 years of constant wear next to my watch. This twin will join it! Lovely in every way but would love to know what the characters actually mean - trranslation would be a great addition.
Have had this cuff about 3 weeks. Beautiful colors and very sturdy. Adjustable to my wrist. So many compliments, and questions about interpretation. I would highly recommend.

I really love this bracelet. It's beautiful, nicely made, and carries a beautiful, spiritual message. I just wish it were in a metal that didn't leave a black mark on my skin where it lay. I may coat the inner surface with clear nail polish and see if that does the trick, because I love to glance at the bracelet during the day and be reminded of its message. If that works, I will recommend it wholeheartedly to a friend, but until then, I cannot despite how much I like it in every other way.
Just what I was looking for, however I am allergic to this metal. A few coats of clear nail polish on the sides that contact the skin is a simple and easy solution. Otherwise I love it!
