Ive bought 2 if thesethrough the years. One standaed add one with 5 bangles. I can't recall how long I've had them, because it seems like forever! I wear one or the other nearly every day as my primary medical alert bracelets. Even with so much use, they show hardly any wear at all. They are still just as beautiful as they always were. They were a great investment in my wardrobe and safety!
