I purchased this as a gift for a friend who soon will be remembering the first anniversary of her own mother's passing. I opened the lovely small round plastic case to reveal the bracelet . The pearls are rich in luster , the elastic of the bracelet fits completely comfortably , and the images of our Blessed Mother are beautiful and small silver accents illuminate them upon the wrist . I cannot wait to present this to my dear friend . This bracelet completely exceeded my expectations !
