I was a little dissapointed. I had one of these a couple of years ago and it wore out on me. I've been searching for one ever since. When I found this one, I was really excited. When I got it though, it was different than the one I had before. The band was much thicker and the stringing was pretty loose. The photo CBD had when I purchased it, showed the same as my old one. The photo of the item has been changed since then however. I still like the bracelet and wear it often, it's just different than what I had expected.
