"Beautiful bracelet"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I ordered Annula in Sea Green, which is a teal color. Like another reviewer, I apparently received Annula in Green, which is an emerald/forest green. Its lovely, too, and fortunately I can wear it with something else. But I wanted the Sea Green (teal) for a particular outfit, and it would be good if you sent buyers what they ordered.
