Rated 3 out of 5 by Nana Susie Not for very small wrists
The only problem with this very pretty bracelet is that on my 6" wrist, the panther heads don't bend and they don't lie flat on my wrist. Otherwise it's a great buy!

This bracelet looked good on TV, however, when I rec'd it, I was very happy because it "popped", it had all the razzle dazzle that I was looking for. It's very substantial and well worth the money, I plan to go back and purchase the matching necklace.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Clover29 Beautiful but yet so flawed
1. I thought the magnet wasn't strong enough (as other reviews have said) but then realized that the magnet on one side had actually come unglued and was stuck to the magnet on the other side. I was able to reglue it (with epoxy this time, not the rubber solution glue that had been used originally).
2. There are black marks on the panther heads that do not come off with tarnish remover or cleaning clothes. It's not noticeable in wear, so it's not a deal-breaker for me, but a star has to come off for it.
3. The safety clasps are terrible. The bracelet arrived with one so loose, it couldn't even be fastened. I tightened them both myself and now they're fine but I know I'll have to keep adjusting them as they work loose with wear.
I like the design so much that I'm happy to keep the bracelet despite the problems. The riccio work is well done. The 6 3/4" measures a tiny bit over 6 3/4 inches, but slightly less than 7". 7" is the maximum length in my comfort zone for my small wrist, so this size works for me.
The panther heads are flat and sleek compared to other similar designs. My husband said, "Oh, they're panthers, are they? I thought they were snakes".

This fell off my wrist the very first time I wore it. The safety clasps are worthless and the magnet does not hold. Very pretty, but couldn't wear it. Returned

So I received this Bracelet and returned it due to the clasp was very loose. I received my replacement and that one too was loose. I tightened it myself but every time you put it on or take it off it become loose again.; Right now I'm not wearing it in fear of losing it.
The magnet is not strong enough to hold without the clasp on tight.
As much as I love it, I'm not sure what I'm going to do.. I may return it.
Rated 2 out of 5 by rnky great idea, bad clasp design
First, I just love panther head jewelry, and then I also like riccio and UltraFine, so this was a quick buy decision for me. Unfortunately, riccio work is by nature quite heavy, and while I like that, it just doesn't work with this clasp. The bracelet just fell off my arm several times, and all within the first few hours of wearing at home the first evening I received it. About 2 years ago, Q offered a riccio bracelet (also UltraFine) and it also had a clasp issue. With that one, I was able to just get the bracelet over my hand 'clasped', so actually had the clasp permanently shut, I didn't really need the clasp and really wanted the bracelet. Couldn't do that with this bracelet, as the panther heads make a non-moveable section. Just not understanding how Q's QA could pass this type of clasp. It just doesn't work, period. I kept thinking, 'why don't they make a bracelet where the 'clasp' is the ring between the panther heads. Found that someone did, and bought that one. Not quite as divine as this one could have been, but hey, it stays on my wrist.
Rated 1 out of 5 by shimmer Not Quality
I love this bracelet but the quality is not there. Mine keeps opening as the clasps are not tight enough and the magnet does not hold up to keep it on as it is not strong enough. Also the bracelet is coming apart near one of the heads. QVC used to be known for good buys with good quality. I want a piece of jewely that will hold up to normal wear. Am returning. Tired of returning things and paying for shipping on inferior items.
Rated 3 out of 5 by NicoleKy ARGH!
I ordered pretty much every cat piece of jewelry possible on QVC so I was excited to see this one. Unfortunately it just didn't work for me. The heads are very sleek with ears back further than some of my other panther pieces but not a deal breaker. Because the heads & ring are so rigid, the magnet doesn't just find the other end like most magnetic bracelets. I had to put them together & I could tell mine weren't very strong. When you do this the bracelet is very rigid on the top and fits like a bangle. Unfortunately my safety clasps were super tight when I tried to get them off and I felt as though they were bending. When I tried to put the bracelet back on the safety clasps wouldn't hold at all any longer, they just fell right open. I know this could be fixed if I just bent them in a little but with all these problems, I just don't want to risk losing the bracelet. I don't know why it couldn't be a pressure insert with safety clasps. If it had been it would've been a keeper. It's very shiny since it's Ultrafine so I most likely wouldn't have layered it with other pieces. Besides, i wouldn't want my other pieces scratching up the polished panther heads. I hope others have better luck with this piece - the combination of panthers with riccio was a great idea!
