In my 77 years of life, I have purchased approximately 90% of all of my gold jewelry, for birthdays, holidays, and any gift-giving event. From real gold to plated gold, this bracelet is by far the best in luster, wearability, eye appealing and rich impression of pure gold. I have had several compliments on my bracelet, fitting me perfectly as it does, and have worn it 24/7, while bathing, swimming, and being outdoors participating in group gatherings where it dazzled supremely. I also am very impressed with the design tooling and recommend it highly to make a luxurious real gold-looking item. I will be purchasing additional items in the future, I am sure. Keep up the good work, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it".
