    Comments about Giriama Bracelet:

    I found this bracelet on sale on-line. The earrings first caught my eye because of the price and style. I would have gotten all three bracelets but, only one style was left. Apparently it was a popular item.

        Comments about Giriama Bracelet:

        I purchased this item as a gift and returned it. It is a pretty bracelet in pearl but very small and thin. The photograph makes it look more substantial than it is. I would recommend buying all three to make this look better. I just didn't feel I could present this as a gift because it looked so insubstantial.
