    I had to look twice because I love the 1st bracelet listed. It has more of a real Chevron feel to it which is so in vogue right now; even in jewelry!

    I’d love to buy my girlfriend the bottom one, unfortunately she got the 2ct version. It looks a lot more valuable than it is though, hers is set in sterling, and has garnered more compliments than all 3 my Rolex’ combined lol. The diamonds are smaller than a point, and most have carbon spots, but it still looks like at least $1,000+ bracelet.

    You are kidding, right? Advice: save your hard-earned dollars for quality jewelry that you will be proud to wear, will last a lifetime and become a family heirloom. Brass settings with inferior diamonds simply waste your money, turn your skin green and look like what they are: overpriced junk jewelry.
