The color and look of the leather and silver beads look very much like the photo on the site. The leather is dark brown and the silver becomes shiny over time. Initially, the silver beads looked brown when I got it out of the box, but once I cleaned it up - it looks great. Sometimes the leather comes off the large silver bead that holds it together, but it won't come off your wrist. I've bought things directly from NOVICA before, and it takes forever for those items to arrive - from now on, I'll check overstock.com first before buying from them as it arrived in several days as opposed to several weeks.
I would purchase this again. It was shipped promptly; came in a nice gift-box, and is a unique, lovely bracelet. Just keep in mind that it is a stiffer leather if you're looking for something softer.
