I have ordered, and wear all the time, quite a few of these "Tibetian" Silver, or "Karen Hill Tribe" silver bracelets - most of them bangles - and all are of obvious quality and very obviously 99 percent real silver. They never need to be polished, but if I decide to use a little polish, the shine is amazing and so so pretty! This bracelet, a "Tibetan-style" one, comes nowhere close to the other bracelets I've received from Overstock. It is too short and my wrists are small, not large. There is an extension chain but it is flimsy and not easy to use. I am sending back for a refund. Although only *****, it is just not up to the quality of the bracelets from this area that are only ****more. I would suggest one pay the extra and go for a better bracelet.
