Judith Ripka Sterling/14K Gold Clad Braided Double Row Bracelet
Oh my stars and garters this bracelet is STUNNING!
The gold and faux diamonds on top sparkle like crazy! and I am truly impressed with the construction - the back side piece 'ring' is actually molded into a curve around the leather braid..so it looks like a really wide, side -to-side "W" as it curves around the braided leather cords...it is not just a flat or rectangular oval shape, which would have been cheaper.
Yes, it is true - one must pay attention to exactly how the bracelet clasp works, especially with the latch UNDERNEATH the snap click clasp on top...but once one does it is easy peasy to put on and take off. You just have to pay attention to how it works and once you understand it it is a quick whip on or off.
LOVE this! it is such a truly terrific piece to own. I had wanted and lusted for a leather bracelet but nothing spoke to me until this piece...wow o wow.
Please note I am going on and on about the construction and clasps and have yet to speak to the top part of the bracelet...just am so pleased.
It is exactly what I was waiting for for a couple or more years...buy it. You will be so happy you did!
Pretty to look at but......
I purchased gold last year as TSV along with the silver and black. The clasp is so difficult to close that I broke it. Waited too late to send both back :(
This bracelet is fabulous. I own and wear twelve of Judith's bracelets daily, but never purchased one in gold clad. I remember when this bracelet arrived as the TSV, and Judith's daughter-in-law wears the couture version of same. So glad I waited because now I have gotten it at the clearance price. The small fits perfectly. I will pair this with my Veronese coin bracelet which will look magnificent.
This is an awesome casual, yet elegant bracelet. Love the design, it's super comfortable and love the neutral color with the gold.
A definite keeper!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Fabulous -elegant- rich!
Love this bracelet. The tan with gold combo is magnificent. The gold glad diamondique combo so well done looks like the real deal! Blends well with my real gold pieces. Can't tell difference. Brilliant piece.
Once I figured out to release the secure mini clasp under latch to release I could open bracelet. Size I bought 7 fits snug. Love it!
Super easy clasp!
I received the bracelet. Love the bracelet. Super easy clasp! After having read the review while waiting to receive the bracelet I began concerned about the clasp. I received the bracelet in the mail yesterday. I couldn't wait to open it so I got the scissors out in the garage and opened it up right away. Stood there and put the bracelet on. Easy as pie! Was so relieved that to my standards this clasp is easy to use. Like I said easy as pie. All of my fine jewelry closures work exactly the same way.
Received as gift, but clasp was awful and "leatherette" looked like the vinyl it is.
Many reviewers complained of the clasp. Watched the video a couple of times, and saw that not once did they show how to clasp the bracelet. Guess that tells us something.
Not wearer friendly
I purchased this bracelet for my granddaughter for Xmas. Loved it for her the minute I opened the box, however we spent the next 10 minutes trying to get the clasp to work. Because of its location, its almost impossible to properly fasten it. Once we thought we had it securely on, it would fall off. Should have returned it, but waited too late. Beautiful but not functional.
Such a beautiful item, is a little big so order your regular bracelet size. Rating of 5 stars
This is a comfortable and trendy bracelet. I just love it.
Very unique look
I like Judith's designs, and although many too pricey, I love this piece. It fit well and matches my other rose gold pieces that I've ordered from QVC.
Love this item. This is definitely for keeps. Ordered the rose gold.
