I love this bead - it is very similar to a blue flower Pandora bead I have. Obviously it does not have the same amount of silver but this is not particularly noticeable when it's on the bracelet. I now have 3 Bling beads and I would definitely recommend them.
I had to return this very poor quality bead which is a shame as the glass was a lovely colour. When it arrived the silver didn't fit snug to the bead (was hanging off) and within 1/2 hour of wearing the silver parted company with the glass bead.
