"You are getting 1 bracelet, misleading photo"

This is a Beautiful bracelet and I am fine with the price paid for one, but I was never sure which bracelet I was receiving until it arrived. I received the one in the front , the one with 3 colors twisted together. It is beautiful and it is large. You see how it is separated at the back (about an inch) well, mine was touching at the back and is still large for my wrist. So it would fit a man's wrist as well and is adjustable in the sense you can pull it out. I am very pleased with it, I just felt like they should have been more clear on the description

"classy bracelet to wear anywhere"

Purchased this twisted copper-brass bracelet to replace one that I bought in Uganda in the 1970s that also had a strand of tin. Was not disappointed!

"Beatuful Craftsmanship!"

I love the use of the different metals, that created this distinct piece! It fit's my wrist, which is 8 1/2", just fine, and I wear it all the time!

"Copper Bracelet"

The listing is deceiving so read carefully. I only received the twisted copper bracelet not both bracelets as shown. Also it did not come in the gift bag as listed (disappointing as this was a gift). The twisted bracelet is nice and will easily fit on a woman's wrist. It does not have much of a gap as shown on the photo but still slides on easily. I don't think it would fit on a man's wrist.
