This is a bracelet I have purchased in the past as gifts never for myself. The first time I tried to open the clasp the little hidden screw mechanism must have been defective and stuck in the clasp. I called to return it and will not reorder because I read other reviews and learned this is a common defect about this bracelet. Will get my money returned and seek a similar bracelet else where. Love QVC but this was a disappointment as I have many, many Judith Ripka items and been pleased with the ones I chose to keep.

I purchased this bracelet a few years ago. It came with three charms and three auto ships of two additional charms each shipment. When all was said and done, I had the bracelet and nine charms. I did not wear it often but, when I did, I always got complements.
Once I wore it and it opened up and all my charms went flying. I found them all. This happened a lot but with exception of the first time, I was always still in the house. Then one day I go to put it on, charms fall off, I put them back and, as I screwing the ends back together, the bracelet breaks. I took it to a jeweler and paid almost $100 to have it repaired.
I always loved Judith Ripka and this is my favorite piece. Well all was well after I got it repaired and I started wearing it more often. Two weeks ago I'm sitting with my husband at his brother's sports bar. I go to reach for my drink and my charms go flying everywhere once again. I had to get down on the dark, sticky, dirty floor to look for my charms. All in all between the charms (which have broken on me twice and I only returned once) the bracelet and repair, I have invested almost $600 into this piece and now I cannot ever wear it or use it. I REFUSE to buy another one only to have it break. I'm not going to keep spending money to have it repaired. The charm with the hanging pearl and the charm with the hanging crystal are both missing the crystal and pearl but I love this bracelet so much that I wore the charms anyway. Nobody knew the pieces were missing but me. I did return the charms once but after it happened again, I just gave up.
I am truly heartbroken about my bracelet. I wanted to buy additional Judith ripkacharms yo go with the 9 I already have but I'm so glad that I did not. I have been looking at Pandora bracelets. My sister swears by them. She has never experienced any problems. I think I will be better off leaving this bracelet alone.
Just ha Ripka needs to work in making a better quality bracelet. The details are beautiful but what good is a beautiful bracelet if you can't wear it?

Love the bracelet but the twist on and off clasp weakened over time. I lost it cause did not notice it kept opening or coming undone on the twist component in the closure. I wish she would bring back a version of it with more secure closure system

Wore it once and the screw top broke off. I can't find anyone who knows how to fix it. Anybody knows?

I purchased this bracelet and began adding charms and wore it as a special occassion bracelet. I barely wore this, and am very dissappointed that it was not made stronger than it was, it broke by the clasp that is twisted off to remove or add on charms. I would suggest creating a different way to open and close this bracelet to avoid the twist on and off clasp. It weakens the bracelet.

I have three of them. Wearing with charms and without. I just wish Judith you make a 18" chain like this. I am going to be the first to buy it.
Rated 3 out of 5 by joanbr Afraid to wear this bracelet
I have this bracelet and I love the look of it but I have become very cautious wearing it. When I first got it and had 6 charms on it, the bracelet came apart and the charms and bracelet landed on the grass outside of church. There I was on the ground looking for the charms. I now have 17 charms on it, gifts from Christmas, and I am afraid that the screw will come apart again. I am thinking of buying another bracelet that does not have this type of screw system. I wear it around the house but I am afraid to wear it out for fear the screw will come loose again and I will lose my charms. Having all these charms makes this bracelet expensive and I don't want to have anything happen to it.

I have been waiting for Judith to release a solo bracelet for those of us who can't get enough charms! I found my charm collection exceeding the capacity of my bracelet but did not wish to buy duplicate charms to get another bracelet. One star off because the price point seems a bit high in comparison to the "starter" set, but still totally worth it. Same great quality and style.
