J28149 - Brighton Karma Collection Smoky Crystal Bracelet
Heaven! I'm In Heaven!
I finally received this piece today and am ecstatic because it completes my Karma "set." The crystals are braided into the cord so it is quite unique. I've never seen anything like this until I came across this set recently in Dallas. I love that the set is and exact and precise match. I converted my dangle earrings from the shepherd's hook to a lever back so there will be no chance of me losing them. This fits comfortably on the wrist and has a little "give" due to the woven cord. The only thing that could make it better is if it were to have a toggle style closure so it would be easier to put on and take off by yourself.
The crystals sparkle like diamonds. The cording does make the bracelet a bit casual, but it also adds to its charm. Speaking of charms, all of these are beautiful, especially the yellow teardrop crystal. Yes, the clasp and charms do tend to fall on the underside of the wrist, but the also seem to stay put when I put them above. I bought the necklace, too, and it's just as lovely. The earrings were too big for my taste and I returned them. And maybe too matchy-matchy.
The crystals and charms on this are beautiful but somehow the cord that was used cheapens the bracelet. Plus it doesn't have good balance on the wrist. I think it would work better if the charms were in the center of the bracelet away from the clasp then maybe the whole thing wouldn't hang under the wrist and bang on everything your arm came close to, causing scratches and dings to the beautiful crystal cross. If I'm redesigning......I would change the cord to leather even if I had to leave off the small crystals interspersed along the bracelet. I will return it because I also think the price is too high for this.
