I love the color of this bracelet and also the fact that it has a toggle clasp. I would love to see a few more bracelets with toggles. This bracelet will stand well on its own and look lovely stacked with other bracelets. My only negative on this bracelet is that I wish it were a little looser on my wrist. I can easily clasp the toggle but I don't have any drape to the bracelet. Right now I forget how long the bracelet is but you might want to take that into consideration when you order. For that reason I have given this bracelet only 4 stars. Otherwise, this is a lovely bracelet and I'm sure anyone would be thrilled to add it to their jewelry box.
