I bought the Sardinian Swirl Bracelet in Neon-Coral ($21.80). The bracelet is also available in marble. The quality of the piece is great. The weight of the beads and construction is very good. I can see the care that was put into making this a piece I can wear for many years. I can’t wait to start wearing this beautiful bracelet!
