Comments about Handcrafted Himalayan Copper Bracelet:
It ended up being 1/2 of an inch smaller than described and the edge of the bracelet had a rough edge to it and cut into my husbands wrist. He was going to try to file it down, but being it was smaller than he wanted I just ordered another one some where else.
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
