Connemara Marble Carved Rose Stretch Bracelet
My daughter in law picked this out for me to order for her as a gift for Christmas. I just received it, and it looks NOTHING like the picture. The colors are totally different, and not attractive at all. The carvings on the roses look like they have been sanded down, with very little detail. If she doesn't like this, it is going back. As for me, I would NEVER order anything from this maker.
Not as good as it looks on TV
Bracelet is cheap looking with plastic roses and cream-yellowish balls(I guess they are supposed to look like marble) on stretch string. Don't bother it's not worth any price. Looks like it may have cost the manufacturer less than a dollar. I'm not sending it back because the shipping would be more expensive than the bracelet.
First time disappointed with a product
The bracelet I received does not look anything like the picture. The roses are a dark green very pressed looking and flat and the cream beads are a odd shade of yellow. This is going back. I have been shopping with the Q for over a decade and this is the first time I am disappointed.
good as it looks
wasn't sure about ordering this for a friend the picture doesn't show the nice green color,and great stone carving I was worried about sizing but the bracelet was double strand stretch so it was a perfect fit..arrived with a knot broke easily qvc stood by the item and returned it and replaced it without a problem...I love it would buy it again...
This bracelet is so pretty! People compliment me on it all the time. It's comfortable to wear, the rose carvings are exquisite, and the colors of green are marvelous. I love the smooth back, no pinching or scratching at all!
I like to wear combos of bracelets, so I'll combine it with others, either in contrasting or complimentary colors/shapes & it's usually the first one noticed. People cannot believe it's made out of marble, either & when I tell them it's from Ireland...oooohs & ahhhhhs abound!
I'm so pleased with this bracelet - wear it pretty much every day...& since I am of Irish heritage, it suits me fine!! :) I'd even buy one for my sister, if she liked wearing bracelets!
This is a lovely bracelet. Because its stretchy it fits my wrist perfectly. My only complaint is that the color of the roses is quite a bit darker than the pictures and what it looked like on air. I prefer the lighter shade of green depicted, however it is still lovely. Also, the round marble pieces are more yellow then pale green.
This picture is not the best example
This bracelet has a wonderful feel, being natural marble. It has a nice width and seems well made. But it does NOT look like this picture. The beads on the one I received were much more green, a light green, and the roses were the darker colour and uniform in colour, however the carving of the roses had much less depth than shown in this picture. But it is still charming and has a nice presence. However it really is a tight-fitting bracelet as others have said. It is a shame they did not put even one more set of beads to make it truly an average size. I am going to have to return it because of this fact. I don't want to spend another 20 or more dollars having someone add a link of some sort to it.
If you have a small wrist, are prepared to accept any colour of green that it comes in (it is a nice green) and love the idea of the connemara marble, it is a very charming irish bracelet.
Not what I expected
I read the reviews, placed my order & received my bracelet faster than expected. However, while the bracelet resembles the picture (carved roses & beads) the color of my bracelet was icky. Yes, I read that not all the colors of the stones are the same & each are made to match. Unfortunately, my roses are a very deep green with the accompanying beads an odd yellowish color. Also, my wrists generally fit any average bracelet, but the fit is very snug for this elastic one. Had the colors been better as well as the fit, I would have given this 5 stars. 3 stars were for workmanship. The roses look like roses and every rose/bead matches in color, just not colors that I feel are attractive.
better than I expected
This bracelet looks even better in person. The one I received has darker green roses, and the beads/pearls are more yellowish, and even more beautiful. I don't usually buy bracelets because my wrist is small and they usually fall off or feel like they are going to fall off. This one fits great, and I have none of the worry about losing it. Definitely a good buy !
Not as depicted
I had read some negative reviews prior to ordering but chose to take a chance anyway. The colors are truly nothing as depicted. The roses are dark green and the beads are yellow. I am keeping the bracelet because it is Connemara marble and the price was half the original. I realize that the colors vary but this is really nothing like the beautiful soft colors depicted in the photo. Reviews are definitely right on.
A wonderful piece
I truly enjoy the lime/darker green contrast of this bracelet. It is different from any piece in my collection.
Colors completely different from pictures
I ordered this bracelet because I love Connemara marble and have purchased several pieces in Ireland. When I received this bracelet, the colors were completely off from the pictures on the website. The cream looking pieces were a bright yellow and the green roses were a very deep, dark green color...totally unattractive. Also, I do not have a large wrist at all, and this fit very snug on me. I returned it and would defiitely not recommend this to anyone.
