I've had this for 10 months, so I can speak on its longevity. I haven't taken it off since I received it (even in the shower) and it has not tarnished or snapped. It is very, very lightweight, I would've liked it to have a little bit of weight. That is my personal preference. My only real issue with this anklet is the charms. The moons and stars are actually pretty sharp. The first 1-2 weeks that I wore it, I had a few cuts and scabs. Nothing too dramatic, but it was a little bit painful. It took some getting used when I would wear sneakers and the charms would stab my skin. It also would snag EVERYTHING. I was hoping that the charms would dull out with time, but 10 months later and they're still as sharp. However, it's no longer painful. Ultimately, if you can get past how sharp the charms are and the inevitable snagging, I would recommend this.
