The photograph gives a true image both in detail and colour. I was concerned that it would not match my silver grey dress,but the promise of a full refund if returned in original unopened packaging gave me sufficient to buy with confidence, knowing that I could return it, if the colour was not the right shade. The design detail is also well presented, the roll-over image was a great help in assessing the design which was true to image. It arrived in its own cellophane box which was enclosed in a cardboard box, so it was well protected. The fascinator is mounted on a comb which sits firmly on my head despite having short hair. The price was very good value for money.
