Yeah, I really haven't had any problem with them falling apart or the rhinestones coming off. We have some of these that my girls have been wearing for about a year and haven't had trouble. Also, I've sold a TON and I'm sure my customers would have mentioned if any had had trouble too. The only trouble I've had with some of my AR or AR look-alikes is that sometimes after alot of usage, the flowers get sorta "wimpy" or curled up. So I just mist with water and blow dry them and that seems to "reset" the shape.
