    I also had grey and red examples but they have broken and based on the research below I don't think they are meant to last. These examples are about 2.25" tiny wrist! and less 1/8" wide. So pretty.

    On Wikipedia: Thin bridal bracelets weren't purchased by the bride in India, Pakistan and Bangladesh but given to her. "It is a common tradition to see a new bride wearing glass bangles at her wedding and the honeymoon will end when the last bangle breaks."

      Beautiful idea isn't it? My bracelets broke because I wore them out and about. I haven't been able to find out why the switch to metal and plastic. Hopefully someone on CW knows.

      Thank you Nadia and Amber - I guess they were gifts and the bride stacked them up on her arm.

      Thank you for loves: Lee, Aim, Nadia, agh, Phil, Newtimes, mike, Amber, and gargoyle...
