I Have read about christy since i was 17 and absolutely fell in love with the books. i was especially excited over the bracelet that had forever on it. I bought one for myself and my best friend. I wore this bracelet all the time and had so many compliments, especially from friends wondering where I found this as it is unavailable in new zealand. I was so upset that after a few months, it has changed colour. I did not wear it in the shower or swimming. I would recommend this but just disappointing that the silver has peeled off in places.
