La Preciosa apparently makes great quality sterling and created opal jewelry. Each linked piece is stamped 925 (sterling) on the back and its welded smoothly. This bracelet is very well made but it is very difficult to put on without the help of someone else. The other con is the actual design...Manta rays don't swim with their tails curved, so at first glance you can't tell what the bracelet is. I'm being picky here because I live near the ocean in Florida and I see rays often when SCUBA diving or at the beach. Overall, its a nice collection to my opals!
It is a very nice all purpose bracelet. It could be wore for casual or dress. The black beads are shiny & the quartz is clear, it is a good size and makes a nice appearance singly or paired with other bracelets. I have not had it long so we hope it will wear a long time (stretch bracelet) before it would need restrung. It seems to be an over all good item.
