Okay, I had to review this item because I just love this bracelet. I have two of them and they are beautiful, unique and the colors are vibrant. You have to tie it and it can be difficult especially without help, although I have mastered doing it on my own. If you double tie it, it stays on. I have never had a problem. I love how the chains dangle. I have some beaded Chan Luu earrings that also have chains and they go beautifully with the bracelet. I will say that if I wear it, I do have to remove it before cooking dinner. It's no good in the kitchen but that's okay. I think at the sale price, this is also a great value!
Jewelry isn't practical to start, but this piece really wasn't wearable. It's strikingly lovely, but the fabric+chains self-closure was sloppy. It came loose easily after simply trying it on for a few minutes and moving my arm around. Yet, it never came completely loose since the chains kept getting tangled. If I didn't have to move and simply wanted to stare at this bracelet, it would have been perfect. It really is pretty, but useless if I can't wear it without worry. I returned it after trying it on for a few minutes.
This bracelet did come beautifully packaged but was just not what I expected. There was little in the way of contrasting color which from afar made the bracelet appear to be just a plain gray. The 4" ends to the bracelet get constantly tangled up and twisted and are just not attractive. This bracelet was also really large on me, and I don't think that I have an abnormally small wrist. I also did not find it easy to tie this on so that it looked pretty. Without the chains on the ends and in a different color I might have really liked it.
Response from Garnet Hill:By Cherie, Customer Liaison, January 24, 2014
We think part of the appeal of this bracelet are the dangly tie ends as shown on the model. We so appreciate your suggestions, please take advantage of exchange or return.
