About what I expected for the price I paid. The pearls are plastic, but assembly seems sturdy enough. The pearled part of the belt goes all the way around my waist...I'd say about 26". The ribbon is not sewn to the belt, so you can thread through both ends of the belt to make a bow, or replace it with a funky colored one easily. I bought it to wear on my wedding dress if I need a belt. Since me dress hasn't arrived yet, I don't know yet if I'll wear it.
