kate spade new york 'all wrapped up' glass pearl bracelet
I never paid too much attention to Kate Spade jewelry except that it seemed quite expensive for costume jewelry. I came across this bracelet and a matching necklace at a clearance rack at one of the department stores. I tried the pair on several times and could not decide. The price was very appealing. The style was off - it did not somehow click for me. The pearls and the bow were too big and made the items look cheap and more fit for a little's girl jewelry play set than a classic that a woman might wear for years and always be in style. In spite of a very attractive price, I decided not to buy the pair and I feel good about my decision.
Contemporary take on pearls
I purchased this bracelet online and the pearls are a bit larger than I had expected ~ so I love it differently. I had bought it to layer with other bracelets, but have found that it makes a lovely statement all by itself. Pearls have a away of lending a feminine vibe, and the chunkiness of the pearls on this bracelet modernizes it.
bigger than it looks
I love the look of the bracelet, but its much bigger than the picture makes it look. I was expecting a small, tighter fitting pearl bracelet, but this bracelet has large pearls and is so large that it nearly slips off my smaller wrist. I was expecting it to be a basic that I could wear everyday, but I think it is a bit too eye catching for that. Overall I am very satisfied with the look, although it is not what i expected.
