Excentllant, costumer services and your responsiveness.
This is a really nice find! Looks just like the picture but even better. It would make a great gift too. It comes in a pretty bag with a card telling what each symbols means. I have a small wrist and it fits perfect. I have been wearing it for over a week and it hasn't turned my skin green. I am going to buy a couple more for friends.
Beautiful copper in a delicate design. I purchased it for its healing properties and already feel it's effects! I am grateful to the person who crafted it and to those who distribute this item and pray they are safe, healthy and blessed. Namaste
It was a gift ,
It was a gift , she loved it.
joyful little bangle!
I have had this bracelet a little less than a week and I can't take it off! I love it! It's very simple but yet detailed with the individual symbols. I love that it is hand made! And I am very honored to contribute to the Tibetan Buddhist monastery. One of the reasons I purchased this was because it is a Fair Trade item. I'm a big fan of copper for healing and wear this with 2 other bracelets I bought here. Very pleased!
