    I found I like the 2 tone green lavendar & even enjoy some rust veining.

    The 1st one was the first one I liked but you can see its pastel & more opaque but not bad for the price.

    I saw another one I liked as it was a deeper color & more translucent but it had a chip on edge & there was a Y crack radiating out from it. Not sure how deep that went but likely thats not good & any knock i the right place could break it.

    A lavendar would be nice too but price would be more.

    I tend to like D bangles more so far, as they sit closer to the wrist. I like a really snug fit. I prefer the look of princess bangles though.

    I would avoid that bangle with the crack.

    Yeah, they did not even bother to mention the damage but expect you to closely look at the photos.
    I even pmd them to point it out but they did not respond. They sell alot of preowned bangles.

    If it was my sale & I did not take returns I would certainly ake a note of the chip & lines running out of it into the bangle.

    Sure the lines are related to the chip but bow deep or how dangerous can never tell. Could stay like that but could bang your arm on a table & break off.

    Sort of liked the size & color & translucency...shame...

    Thanks for posting these photos. I love your black bangle, it looks fantastic with your watch. And that blue lavender one took my breath away...I fear it would also take my bank account away too...so I won't even ask.

    They are indeed. Sigh. Really feel quite sad about the bluish purple. Think is a really rare color and it's my size AND a princess style. Gah...

    Lol. Pretty easy based on prices... I nearly fell off the stool when I heard the price of the purple lol. It's comparable to buying a two carat diamond with fairly decent specs...

    OK, stupid question. What makes it "princess style?"

    And that ring makes my knees weak.

    Princess style: rounded inside and outside the bangle
    D style: flat inside and rounded outside the bangle

    You are welcome! Happy to share.
    Apparently black bangles were popular a few years ago cos they look more modern. Have to say it's fairly unobtrusive as compared to my icy bangle. Think most people won't know the bangle is made of jade unless they already know about black jade, unlike the more common colors.
