I was looking for a stylish, catholic bracelet and came across this. I was initially eyeing the Aquinas bracelet, but it was sold out. I am glad that was the case, as it led me to get the Columba bracelet. I like the green colors and it prompted me to learn more about St. Columba. The bracelet is stylish and well-made. Hopefully having this at hand will encourage my practice of praying the rosary.
One minor issue. I don't like how the excess cord flops around, once I tighten the bracelet on my wrist. I understand why it's like that, and it's probably unavoidable. I have bracelets of a similar style with the same issue.
I thought this was going to be a lot greener than it is. I also thought from the picture that this one was on navy blue cord. But the beads are *very* nearly gray (it looks almost the same as my friend's Aquinas one) and the cord is black. They're green enough that I don't think I got the wrong one, but it wasn't what I expected.
I also (naively?) assumed the long ends of the paracord could be cut, but if I cut them, there would be no way to grip to tighten it. Instead I just have a couple inches of extra cord sticking out and getting in the way all the time. It really needs a better fastening mechanism. And even at the tightest, it's pretty loose, and I don't have exceptionally tiny wrists or anything.
I like it a lot. I'm able to use it as I intended. It just has some significant differences from what I thought I was buying that I think other people would like to know.
