My daughter received a set of two in her bag that I bought her for her birthday. She happened to be diagnosed the next week with a brain tumor. she gave me the second band and we have worn them to stand together in her fight! The acute phase is done, and now we are just continuing with medical treatment, but we wear the to be together no matter how far apart we are. They are simple, but the color has stayed vibrant and true, even through multiple hand washings, showers and daily wear. The metal has stayed nice also. So it is a simple bracelet, that stays looking like new!
