I purchased the Amanda Judge Rheese headband from an Orlando bridal salon for my wedding, but did not end up wearing it. Since it has no sentimental value for me, I figure I would sell it. The material is gold with clear crystals in a four-thin-strand-braid style, bound with a light colored elastic. I have it stored in the original velvet case and Amanda Judge box. No damage or wear of any kind since, well, it was never worn.
