I will have to say that out of the bracelets that I have worn, this one was one of the favourites, I guess that’s why it’s broken. With gold being a softer metal, it gets thin in spots and will eventually break if it is not looked after. Well, I did not look after this one and it now sits in my jewellery box not ever to see the light of day. There is another one somewhere in my jewellery box that is also broken, I had worn them together. I will have to do some searching for it. I believe that this one will help in the gold content of making something new. It does not weigh very much but every little bit will help.
