I expected more from this piece of jewelry, especially after checking out this brand's site (Taara). They're all made in India and is sold as a high end modern/classical designed items. However, this piece in person seems very cheap. I bought this on sale and think I still over spent. The item is suppose to be 22k gold plated. But the weight feels extremely light like it's plastic. I know it's plated not solid but I have 24k gold solid rings and the weight is part of the feel of the quality. On top of that it doesn't look like metal even. The only parts that have the gems are in the teardrop shapes, which also look more plastic than stone. The rest of the coloring are enamel and look very cheap up close because there's enamel leaked on top of the crystals and crystals all off centered and twisted. The whole thing has a very ramshackle girl's plastic dress up toy look.

I loved this bangle the minute I put it on but was Soooo disappointed to find that a chunk of crystal had broken off - It would have to be welded back at the offcahnce of a repair.
I love this designers pieces and was torn between sending it back vs keeping it. But it is a beautiful piece - for a special occasion.
