I purchased this in order to use as per its purpose. It is a beautiful bracelet and the colors are stunning. To put a negative comment is not easy but I have to be honest. Due to the weight of the beads, and should you have any sudden movement the weight is its downfall. As a result, sudden movement caused the elastic to snap, sending the beads flying. Some may have opinions about wearing it all the time; perhaps only wearing as and per needed for practise, yet it is such a stunning looking time it is hard not to. My reason for posting this is simply to make people aware that if you do buy it, please be mindful of any sudden or quick movements if you are wearing it on a day to day basis. Again, it is beautiful and very much worth the money but in this case the elastic used was simply not practical. I have bought other products from the seller and am extremely happy and will buy more.
