The gold is a medium/dark shade. Easy on and off. Very light, I forget I'm wearing it. It's so nice that it fits perfectly since I have a small (6") wrist and bracelets are often hanging halfway down my hand! Very happy with this bracelet.
I have purchased a number of items from The Darma Shop, I am a bracelets girl. This Earthquake Relief bracelet is beautiful, fun and stacks wonderfully with other bracelets I have. Would love to purchase it in other colors. I have it in purple and gold. You will not regret this purchase!
