Kenneth Jay Lane's Enamel Criss-crossed Bangle Bracelet
I wish I had seen this earlier when there were more color choices. I got the brown which is gorgeous. Good size and the fit is just right in the medium. The magnetic clasp is good. I have a similar bracelet from the old Jackie Kennedy Collection and the clasp is untrustworthy. I almost lost that bracelet. Haven't worn this to truly test it out but I feel confident. Great price.
This is a substantial weight bracelet and made well. No evidence of flaws or chips as expressed in other reviews.
I purchased this bangle in the brown in the average size. I have small wrists and the average fit perfect with no sliding halfway down my hand. The workmanship of the enamel and the "gold" is very nice. It has a nice weight and will look great on its own or stacked with other bracelets. Nice similarity to Jean Schlumberger's work, but without the $30,000+ price tag.
Love the bracelet! I bought the brown and the black. Never mind the spring or the hole. The beauty of the bracelet overshadows the flaw. Bought the brown and the black. Would have loved to have the blue. I love KJL and QVC!
Just gorgeous enamel work and very substantial bracelet. CLOSES VERY SECURELY. PERFECT FIT ON MY 6 1/4" WRIST IN THE AVERAGE. GOT ALL BUT ONE OF THE COLORS WITH THE NECLACES AND RINGS TO MATCH. AT THIS CLEARANCE PRICE IT'S A SCREAMING DEAL!!
I ordered the brown one while watching the last KJL show. The company rep. made a point of stating that the factory where these bracelets are made do the finest work. He said there would be "no bubbles and no drips" WELL, mine arrived today and as soon as I removed it from the pouch I noticed that there are hundreds of bubbles and drips. The color is lovely; the magnet is amazing and the hinge is very strong. The wide gap where the spring is does detract from the beauty of the piece, but I could have overlooked that. No, I have already packaged it to return it. The bubbles and drip marks are too much . In addition, I ordered the large size. All I can say is that if this is large then the small must be very tiny. I will assume they sent the wrong size to me. It's out of here, too bad. I will stick to enamels made for Joan Rivers and the JB Kennedy Collection, both of which make really fine enameling.
So close to perfect but...
Love the enamel work, the colors are beautiful, got the black and the blue. The size is great, big enough to make a statement without getting in the way. But... The hinge is awful. Why this terrible shortcut? I hate the hole that exposes the spring.
Quality and Beauty
I have this bracelet in both the blue and the purple enameling. The quality of the workmanship is phenomenal. The gold criss crossing is spot on for my real gold jewelry. The enameling is beautiful and rich. I have a tiny wrist and the Average fits like a dream. I love the security of the strong clasp. My only problem is that I don't like seeing the big hole showing the spring on one side of the bracelet. I wish that it could have been hidden. But love them both. And they would make wonderful gifts.
I have a larger wrist and ordered the large which fits fine. Nice bold presence.. Has weight but not too much...Good purchase and enamel well done.
I ORDERED THIS IN AVERAGE IN BLACK. IT IS BEAUTIFUL BUT HAD I REALIZED THE SPRING OF THE HINGE WOULD SHOW I NEVER WOULD HAVE ORDERED IT. THAT GAPING HOLE WITH THE SPRING IS JUST PLAIN UGLY. NOT KJL USUAL. I AM DISSAPOINTED :( BACK IT GOES!!!!
Substantial but not to weighty. The enamel is well done. Just a pretty classic bangle bracelet.I have a small wrist and the average size was a great fit.Thanks! Mr. Lane :)
Another KJL treasure!
It's bold and beautiful in blue! I wear 7" bracelets with room to spare and the Average size in this bangle is roomy but not oversized. I love it!
