Alexis Bittar 'Elements - Siyabona' Panther Hinged Bracelet
Expensive Costume Jewelry
Just got this bracelet in the mail. It is definitely made for a small bone wrist. The design is very unique and eye-catching. I was hoping to wear this to the office with my business suits but I'm not sure if the "bling" will be too much.
Elegant (but flashy) bracelet
Beautiful bracelet, much prettier than the picture shows, but it's quite small -- barely fit around my wrist and my wrist isn't large (nor small apparently). Very lovely and elegant
I just bought this tonight, so four stars only because i'm not sure how it will hold up (i.e., hoping crystals don't fall out, but I'm told they will send to Alexis Bittar to replace if there's a problem). LOVE that it's MADE in USA!! Rare today for even high end costume jewelry! Anyway, I have the Panther line from the 1980's by Carolee (when Carolee was still the owner, before they sold out and started production in China and quality went south). The Panther line was a reproduction of the Duchess of Windsor's collection. This is like a modern take on the timeless appeal of Panthers in jewelry (when tastefully done).
The FIT is AMAZING!! Oval shaped doesn't "spin" on the wrist which would be a problem as the panther could get caught on things. As it is he sits comfortably and doesn't move. FIT likely not suitable for a Larger Wrist! (I'm 135 lbs.) Also bought the necklace figuring I'd regret not having it later when it is no longer available. This collection is sure to be a must have for the upcoming Christmas season!
Some people might not like the color of the gold, it's not the light gold as shown, although not dark either, it's a deep yellow gold. Might not appeal to everyone, but it's part of the overall distinctive look - this piece is a very different unique take on a timeless classic collection.
