Don't be afraid of the 1.29-cent price, because these are great bracelets. Of course this is not heirloom quality jewelry made of precious metal. But the chain is made of unsoldered steel, it has a strong lobster clasp and is plated in either silver or gold. I think you will be pleased at the quality and I know you will love the price. These exact bracelets sell for $5 to $10 in most retail stores. The reason that I can sell them to you at this price is because I don't buy expensive packaging, I don't have to pay a middleman, overhead or labor. I know how small church budgets are, and I really wanted to offer a good product that you can afford. I think you will be very pleased!
