The gold in this bracelet is very bright and shiny. It looks way more muted in the picture. The cubic zirconias are also very shiny, so the bracelet is a bit gaudy. It definitely catches the light. The turquoise beads are more plastic looking, also. For some reason I thought they would look more like stones. The biggest difference is just how shiny this bracelet is. So if you like flashy jewelry this is for you. Everything said, however, I still like the bracelet and I will wear it.
