When I bought this product I was under the impression it would be relatively pliable. Once I received it, I noticed that the coloring was bright and shiny, which was what I wanted. However, I was in a time pinch and couldn't find my pliers, and tried to bend it open to place a lobster clasp onto it with my fingers. Needless to say, I was unable to. Even with one plier the ring wouldn't budge at all. I finally got it open with 2 pliers and a lot of effort. Overall, I'd say this product was just a bit misleading in its pliability, but had nice coloration.
