Rated 4 out of 5 by librisfb Substantial and stunning
I've been reluctant to get clad pieces, especially when the piece is a lot of money. As such, I had very little clad prior to receiving this today, choosing instead to develop a strong JR silver collection. This piece kept nagging at me and when it went to clearance and became more reasonably priced I couldn't resist it any longer. I'm glad I didn't. It is heavy, which I like. It is well constructed and substantial; no need to wear anything else with it to make a statement. The color is spot on with my 18k yellow gold ring (yes, this clad is 14k yellow gold but is alloyed to look more like 18k.) And the small hugs my 6 inch wrist exactly the way I like: snug without being uncomfortable. It looks stunning, bold and yet classic on my wrist. The only criticism I have is that the hinge box on the inside of the cuff shows through because of the open design. It's a minor annoyance, a construction or design flaw in an otherwise beautifully crafted cuff. I wear the cuff so the hinge is on the outer wrist where I don't see it. Despite the hinge flaw, this one's a real beauty and a keeper for me.

This is a lovely bracelet but it is a lighter shade of gold (more like 18kt) than the Ripka Regent watch in yg. Since I would be wearing them on different arms that would be ok, but I just wasn't wowed by the bracelet, like I expected to be. I returned it.
I have a 6" wrist and ordered average, which fit fine and for the most part, stayed upright on my arm so I felt the size was correct. (and what I normally wear).
