These are made right here in the USA! They are a bit more expensive because the quality is MUCH higher than your typical imported fashion jewelry! Support American jobs by buying this bracelet! We commissioned this design and the piece was made for us, so we are certain of the origins on this item. This piece was made in a USA wire house and plated at a USA plater. It is plated with 14K gold plating and should not tarnish or discolor during normal use (as other cheap wire bracelets will). Remember to treat your costume jewelry well and never put it away damp. A piece of costume left wet over time may very well rust or damage, even this one. The piece is also of higher quality then usually seen, the wire is heavier. A beautiful handcrafted in the USA piece. This item ships boxed.
