i brought this bracelet in to the jeweler to get it resized and the jeweler had told me he was not able to solder the links together after he cuts it because the bracelet's metal is not sterling silver. if it is, its mixed with another type of metal so it wont catch on. the online chat rep from overstock understood the problem and offered me a full refund which im glad they did. overstock's rep are great though. BECAREFUL IF U ARE SHOPPING ON THIS SITE. I WOULD URGE YOU TO BRING YOUR JEWELRY TO THE STORE TO GET IT LOOKED AT TO MAKE SURE ITS AUTHENTIC AS DESCRIBED.
