Rustic Cuff Wide Brass Criss Cross Cuff
***** JUST THE FACTS *****
I could go on and on about how drop-dead gorgeous I think this cuff is. However, for a more helpful review, I will stick to facts only. It is exactly as pictured; shiny, bright true yellow gold color. Impeccably crafted by a skilled artisan in hammered solid brass. Smooth as satin inside and out -not a rough or sharp edge to be found. This is not a "tinny" piece. Measuring exactly 3" and weighing exactly 4 oz. (on my kitchen scales), it's weighty. But, I don't find it at all cumbersome or uncomfortable. Though sturdy, it can easily be adjusted to fit a wide range of wrist sizes from the tiny to the MUCH larger. By holding it between the palms of both hands -to equally distribute pressure- I was able to squeeze it together to fit my scrawny arm and 6 1/2" wrist with minimal effort. When adjusted to fit correctly, it stays put and does not "flip" or slide around on my wrist. Whether or not it will tarnish, only time will tell. Mine arrived with a couple of fingerprint smudges (from the artisan? How cool is that!), that I easily and completely wiped away with just a finger tip. Personally, I like aged brass. So if it should tarnish, so much the better. One final fact: Hands down, one of my most favorite "Q" purchases!
I love the design of this cuff, and that is why I ordered it. However, upon receipt I found that this bracelet is solid brass with a gold coating, which makes it great looking, and extremely heavy. I cannot wear this due to wrist and forearm problems which would be enhanced due to the weight of this cuff. I wish the designer would do this bracelet over in a lighter weight metal. I would order it again in a heartbeat if this were done.
Gorgeous piece but awkward to wear.
This piece is absolutely beautiful. I really wanted to keep it, but I found the fit very awkward and uncomfortable on my wrist. I do have a smaller wrist, but have many average size cuffs and bracelets that I wear just fine. On this one the opening is too large and it moves on me quite a bit. I tried playing with it and seeing if there was enough give to tighten up the opening at all, but it just wouldn't work. Too bad because it could be a showstopper.
I was very pleased with the look and feel of this piece! If you don't want Bold & THE NOW look, then don't get this piece! However if you are fashion forward and love the attention a bold & sophisticated bracelet brings then by all means you will LOVE this cuff!! Very comfortable to wear & goes with everything & anything!!!
Great Casual or Dressy!
I love this cuff! I wear it with Jeans or for dressy occasions. Friends and strangers compliment its design and want to try it on. What a perfect purchase - Money well spent!
This is a true WOW piece. I have an average wrist and can see it fitting someone larger but may be a problem for someone with a very delicate wrist. It's not for everyone but if you like big and BOLD, you'll like this. Really well made, well priced, true bronze color, very different looking, a real eye catcher.
Tons of compliments!
Nearly every time I wear this Rustic Cuff, I seriously get asked, WHERE DID YOU GET THAT, I LOVE IT!
I get tons of compliments on this cool piece of jewelry.
I can wear it casually with jeans or really dress up my look and wear it with a simple cocktail dress. I already have this cuff but when I noticed it on QVC at a discounted price, I had to get one for my sister. I am so excited to give it to her!
