I have had a chance to wear this myself, and then I actually ended up giving it to a younger family member, due to them constantly saying how beautiful it was. I normally have a hard time with anything that isn't one hundred percent gold, as it turns my skin green quickly. This was not the case with this bracelet, dudhyd tarnish or turn my skin colors. I do have to admit, I wse careful to never get it wet, and only wore for shoet periods of time. It is a very pretty piece of costume jewelry, as long as you buy it, fully knowint that is what you are getting, you wont be disappointed.
