Rated 4 out of 5 by fransmom Beautiful Stunning Bracelet
I be recently been splurging on Barbara Bixby jewelry due to sales or clearance along with 6 value payments. Words cannot describe the clarity, cut and sparkle that these semi precious stones give off. I have to admit that the magnetism was so strong that I really had to give a good tug to releases it. I ordered. 6 1/2 and I have fairly large hands for a girl. It's pretty snug but not tight. It doesn't spin around on my wrist. But only caveat is the after opening my package, I realized that it came in a Judith Ripka box and pouch. It's like it was returned and resold with the wrong packaging material. QVC customer service gave me the option to return it and they will resend after they received the "defective one". No problem so far with the clasp and I do serious diy.

I am going to call this one my "Hurricane Bracelet. It arrived several days after Matthew; we had left town because we didn't have power and had family invite us to come stay. We didn't have storm or flood damage, just no power and none in sight for several days. So we went. Anyhow... as I said, it was waiting for me when we came home. When I got the package open, it made me smile. The colors in the stones lifted my spirits immediately....but I am not crazy about the clasp. The first time I wore it it opened and came off. Was considering returning it but just cannot bring myself to lt go of it because it is such a beautiful bracelet and mixes so perfectly with my gemstone rings. I got the sale price on this one, otherwise it would not be in my collection now. Nice and weighty, nice size, LOVE the setting. I hope to enjoy this one for a long time.

I HAVE BEEN LOOKING AT THIS BRACELET FOR SOME TIME(YEARS!) BUT THE PRICE WAS JUST WAY TOO MUCH. AND THEN I WAS ABLE TO PICK IT UP ON A SPECIAL FOR MORE THAN HALF OFF AT $214. VERY BEAUTIFUL IN PERSON AND HAS SOME HEFT TO THE WEIGHT. I WILL KEEP IN MIND THE PREVIOUS REVIEWS REGARDING A SAFETY LATCH BEFORE WEARING. I PLAN ON WEARING THIS BABY FOR YEARS TO COME.
Rated 1 out of 5 by HokieMom Don't Trust This Clasp!!
I read reviews - but thought if I carefully secured the clasp, it would be okay. But I was wrong. Wore the bracelet for the 2nd time tonight and it's gone. Really loved this bracelet. Even ordered BB rings to wear with it. It is beautiful. But it's gone.
Rated 1 out of 5 by goldie727 Lost it first time I wore it - So disappointed!
While the bracelet itself is beautiful and the gemstones sparkle and the detail is exquisite from Barbara, as always; the weak clasp caused me to lose this bracelet the very first night I wore it. I am beyond disappointed and heartbroken. I'm just glad that I got it at a special price, as I'm not out the full value - that would have been even more devastating. Please, no more magnetic clasps. I've learned a very expensive lesson here, sad to say. I hate to leave a 1 star, but I believe in this case it is justified.

I ordered this knowing there were issues with the clasp...however, the bracelet is really nice and plan on getting a safety chain to prevent my losing it....I wore it around the house for a while and it did indeed fall off so buyer beware...I might add I purchase another bracelet (not from the Q) which had the same type of closure...the magnet fell out on one side after wearing only once so the magnet clasps are not to be trusted...Recommend only if safety chain is added! This is a beautiful piece with lots of sparkle and wonderful workmanship ....

I have been eye-Ing this bracelet for a while as I have 3 BB gemstone flower rings, but couldn't justify the $400 price tag. Then, it was half off as a one day only, and I finally made the plunge. And I'm so very happy I did.
I can understand the bad reviews about the clasp. The first few days after receiving this bracelet, I wore it around the house - doing laundry, dishes, vacuuming and walking my Rottweiler. The bracelet stayed on my wrist. In my experience with this bracelet, there are TWO clicks -- the first click happens when the magnets find each other and the second one when the top 18k flower "clicks" with the bottom part. This bracelet is so secure that I actually have to apply a little tug to remove it.
I am very happy with this bracelet! I bought the 6 ¾ inch and the fit is wonderful. I would like to buy a second one to stack together. For now, I plan to stack this with a couple of Judith Ripka cuffs.
Rated 5 out of 5 by DancesWithBeagles Amazing and heirloom quality! (Note re clasp)
This is a beautiful bracelet. It is encrusted with deeply saturated gemstones, has intricate sculpting from every angle, a nice weight, and lays comfortably. I hesitated to purchase because of many reviewers mentioning that the clasp unfastened when wearing, but decided I would just add an inexpensive safety chain. Purchased a set of 3 chains from the mart store for under $4 and put the silver one on. When examining the bracelet clasp from the side I noticed that sometimes after bringing the pieces together with the magnet the two pieces did not rest completely closed, leaving a tiny space where the edges meet. Inside the clasp I saw that the inside of the clasp has a tiny bump on one side, and a tiny hole on the opposite side. When you close the clasp you must be sure that the bump goes into the hole - if you don't the clasp can twist and open. Being sure to put the 'peg' into the hole will help to keep the clasp tightly secured. However, I will keep the safety clasp on just to be sure. Hope this helps some of you who love the look of this treasure, but have been afraid of losing it.
