Like bracelet but the yellow is very pale. Comfortable. Fair value for money, especially when it is supporting some women in Columbia.

Ordered the lilac bracelet and love it. It's very comfortable on. Decided to order a few more colors. Really cute bracelet.

I like the way the bracelet looks. The orange color looks actually more like red. However, after only a week of use, the silver leather strip has already started to 'crack' and lose its silvery coating. I am not sure how long this will last.
