This cuff is much chunkier in person -- it has a bit of a modern art deco feel. I planned on wearing it with a silver dress for my prom, but decided against it. It's rather heavy, and didn't fit very well since I have thin arms. The cuff opens up in the front, and is easy to put on, but rather heavy to wear. I was looking for something a bit more delicate/classy, and although this is a pretty piece, it is more ostentatious than I wanted.
