This is such a stunning bracelet - I just love it! It is substantial in weight and feels very well made. I am not sure what the other reviewer is talking about concerning "plastic" charms. As far as I can tell they are made of glass. The bracelet is just like the photo, only the metal finish is more antique looking in tone - it does not have a shiny gold look - it's more of an antiqued, burnished finish. I've worn mine for the first time today and have already gotten compliments. It's such a beautiful and unique piece. Highly recommended! My only complaint is that it is a little large on the wrist and shortening it would involve relocating at least 1 charm. (My wrists are medium-sized and I can wear it, but it feels a little too loose).
