This bracelet is much better than the mobius bracelet that I received from another source as a gift. My bracelet turns out to be silver over copper, and the silver is wearing off. The bracelet from Christianbook is cast in sterling silver, and the difference between the two bracelets is apparent. The Christianbook bracelet is much better quality. The only negative about this bracelet is that it is a complete circle, and one woman remarked that her hand is too fat to fit in this style of bracelet. If you know it will fit the person for whom you are buying it, it's a gorgeous and meaningful bracelet. I've given three of them for gifts, and everyone loved it.
