I was very disappointed in this bracelet. The individual silver beads seemed well crafted but overall the bracelet felt cheap and did not look as good as I expected. Maybe my expectations were too high because I had been delighted w/ other 'O' jewelry purchases. This bracelet felt stiff, as if strung on low-grade, craft-store filament, and the pearls were not lustrous. I had intended it as a gift but it did not measure up, so I returned it. Oh, and it came in a very cheesy, dollar-store grade box. If it had cost 1/2 to 2/3 of what it was offered for, I might have kept it for myself.
