I have now ordered at least 4 of these bracelets, originally for myself, and ended up giving them as gifts. Hence, I keep ordering more for myself. All of the orders have arrived quickly and were well packaged in a nice, sturdy cardboard box. The last order arrived in the same way with an added touch: Each bracelet was in a small drawstring bag with the "Worldstock" emblem on it. Anyone associated with Overstock.com knows what that means and adds a little something extra to the bracelet. I wear my bracelet at least twice a week. It goes with any style and color of clothing. I always receive comments about how beautiful the colors are and how nicely the beads are arranged. Each bracelet is made differently so you may wear several at a time and not look as though you are wearing the same jewelry. I will continue to give these as gifts and continually replenish my own supply. They are priced so that they make a fine "thank you" or "thinking of you" gift. The way they are packaged allows them to ship without a worry about being damaged. I would recommend them to anyone -- female or male friends and acquaintances!!
