Michael Kors 'Brilliance' Bead Stretch Bracelet
Cute addition to everyday accessories
I loved this bracelet when I first saw it online, especially in the blue. I saw the mediocre reviews after I had already ordered it and was a bit concerned, but when it arrived, I loved it. I have not had any issues with the bracelet expanding or falling off. I am still not sure I am crazy about the tassel (it's a little long) but I have received compliments on the bracelet, including the tassel. It is a bit pricey ($75) but I used a Nordstrom note towards the purchase and considered this a little treat to myself. My mom likes my bracelet so much that I am considering buying her one for Mother's Day.
dont listen to the negative reviews
these stretch bracelets are really cute and compliment any watch beautifully. I noticed that people are constantly complaining about how the bracelet does not stay securely fastened. All you have to do is tie the ends into a knot. problem solved!
So NOT worth the price!
I just did a high praise review for the Cara stretch bracelets I bought here at Nordstrom online. Unfortunately, Cara didn't have a navy blue one, so when I did a search for that, this bracelet came up. The price, compared to Cara's at 20 something dollars, really floored me and I had to think about it a long time. However, I wear a lot of navy blue and have been looking for a bracelet like this one a long time, so I bit the bullet and purchased this one by MKs in navy. It came beautifully packaged and looked like exactly what I had been searching for. Looked so cute on, too. Then I wore it and found out how disappointing it was. The small gold slide that tightens the leather strips kept coming loose, leaving me with a huge open bracelet that kept almost coming off. In one two hour wear I had to tighten it, which in itself isn't that easy to do with one hand, at least 20 times. For 75 bucks this struck me as a serious defect in craftsmanship. Honestly, even if the bracelet "worked" correctly, it seriously is not worth this price unless wearing something by MK is highly important to you. If it functioned properly it really should only cost at most about $35. I'm returning it and thought I should warn others about its pitfalls.
