I am so pleased with this bracelet. It is prettier than the photos. It is delicate looking, but well constructed. The detail and workmanship is excellent. The clasp has double sided safety clips. It nicely matches a pair of earrings and pendant I previously bought from Ross Simons. It is just perfect.Â
