          I had to return them because they were much too large and fell off my wrist. Had to pay return shipping, so will not buy from National Geographic again, although the items offered are very tempting

                  I got this stack of bracelets as a gift for my mom for this year's Mother's Day. The bracelets themselves are very stylish and beautiful, and as for the sturdiness, she hasn't worn them yet.

                        While these are beautiful bracelets, they are extremely fragile. I dropped 2 bracelets on a wood floor right after receiving them and they broke in half. I still have 3 - but I'm afraid to wear them. They do not look fragile - so I didn't realize how careful I had to be with them.

                          Throughout India, many women continue the age-old tradition of decorating their arms from wrist to elbow with bangles. For some, the bangles are so small that once they’re put on with the assistance of a jeweler, they’re never removed. Our set of mother-of-pearl bangles offers six pastel hues to mix and match or wear as part of an armful. Shell inlaid in brass.

                          Kashmir has been at the crossroads of Hindu, Buddhist, and Islamic culture for centuries, as people from Iran and Central Asia settled in the area. Today, India, China, and Pakistan all claim some part of this mountainous region. Our black embroidered wool shawl is inspired by one of Kashmir’s most widely prized traditions, the intricately woven paisley shawls that were first traded with Europe via the Silk Road.
