Haute Hand Chain!

I don't think I can explain the lo0o0o0ove I have for this.  I have been seeing hand chains all over lately and I just had to get one for myself.  I wasn't sure how it was going to look on me so I didn't want to pay a ton for one of them, but I wanted to give it a shot anywhere.  

So with that in mind, I headed right on over to trusty Forever 21.  I was thinking about purchasing one there because I knew I was going to be able to purchase one for less expensive, but I also was concerned about it lasting and not breaking.  Also, about it changing my hand different colors (especially because I am constantly putting lotions and hand sanitizers on my hands throughout the day, which is surprisingly not impossible with this).  

The first hand chain that I actually purchased from Forever 21 DID BREAK.  I was so upset, but I was cracking my knuckles and bending my hands awkwardly, basically because something weird was on my hand.  It was almost the same sensation as if you had just read a story about bugs and you feel like there are bugs all around you.  I know you know what I mean.  

This didn't keep me from going back to Forever 21 and changing it for another one.  The sales associate told me though that, 'We don't normally return jewelry.. ummmm.. but you can get another one, i'll allow it this time.'  I was like um, okay.  It's not like I was asking her for a refund, I just wanted another bracelet that I bought that broke about four hours after me wearing it.  Not too sure it was a great choice to get another one from there, but I knew they weren't going to give me a refund so get another one I did!  Needless to say, it IS still kickin', so that makes me happy. I got it for $4.80.

Here is a little more of a close up on the details.  Another thing I noticed about these hand chains is that too many of them in the store have all of these obnoxious rhinestones and gross designs and I wanted something super simple.  I would almost be even happier with this if it didn't have the gold bar at the bottom, if it was just chain.  I really just like everything subtle but I guess it just depends on your style.  If you're curious, my nail polish color is China Glaze Prize Winning Mare.

What do you think of this one that I chose?  Do you have your own hand chain and if so, where did you get it?  I want to get another one maybe in rose gold or silver or something!  I think I'll check Etsy, Top Shop, etc.  If you have any suggestions, let me know by tweeting me!  -Brit.
